Jason Moon playing guitar

Jason Moon

Jason Moon is a Milwaukee-based folk/rock singer and songwriter, a veteran of the Iraq War, and a tireless advocate for veteran’s issues. He began his musical career playing around camp fires in his home town of Eagle River, Wisconsin. While attending college at UW-Oshkosh, Jason hosted several open mics, wrote dozens of songs, and played hundreds of shows in the Fox Valley from 1995 until he was deployed in 2003. He performed frequently for his fellow troops, but for over five years after his return he was unable to finish more than a single song.

Breaking the cycle of PTSD and depression, he began to volunteer for veterans-issue charities, and in 2009 he was interviewed for the documentary film On the Bridge. Jason was then asked by the filmmakers to record one of his original songs for the credits roll an experience that energized him to finally begin to write songs again in earnest, and which ultimately led to his concept album Trying to Find My Way Home (2011). Based on the success of Trying in the veterans community, Jason started a new non-profit, Warrior Songs Inc., in 2012. Warrior Songs seeks to take the stories provided by veterans and honor them by turning them into song. Jason has been featured on National Public Radio, Public Radio International, and the music channel, Fuse. He was awarded a Special Recognition Medal in songwriting for the 2012 VA Creative Arts Competition in Boston, MA. www.jasonmoon.org
