Jase Harley - Artist

What do you get when you take a classically trained pianist and graphic artist and raise him with a passion for hip-hop? Jase Harley, a New Jersey native and freelance multimedia creator who’s music has garnered over 16 million streams worldwide. Even before he began taking piano lessons at age 12, he grew up an artist; and a lifelong love of drawing and painting eventually transitioned into a love of making music. This has inspired the creation of Fresh Fuzion, a multimedia outlet he conceived that’s “about [blending] different forms of music and art together.” While he grew up on hip-hop, he’s greatly influenced by older soul, jazz, and blues music, and cites film composers Hans Zimmer and Ryuichi Sakamoto as some of his favorite musicians.

Harley recorded and mixed his latest album Free Pxrn: the Memoir of an American Heathen (released in March of 2016) in the studio he’s owned in Hoboken for the past 4 years. After gaining traction on Pandora, the album now has over 16 million spins online and counting.
