OHLALA GETS PERSONAL WITH JASON WALKER

Interviews

Jason Walker’s debut album, This Is My Life, produced three consecutive #1s, making the handsome out singer one of only a handful of young male artists capable of breaking through to a global dance audience. Those songs of life and love, delivered in an octave well above any other male artist in pop music, proved conclusively that the small-scale can strike a universal chord. Fans have been anxious for more and now, at last, a new single, “Can’t Stop”, is set to hit stores this week.

Has anyone told you that you resemble Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine?


I’m laughing right now. It happens quite often actually, and the funny thing is, I don’t think I look anything like him. But hey, he’s a star, so I’ll take it.


We read you were discovered on a TV competition show called Its Show Time At The Apollo.

That’s true. The Apollo Theater is a famous theatre in Harlem, NYC. Many of the greatest legends have graced its stage. Everyone from Patti La Belle and Aretha Franklin to Lauren Hill…

What was a skinny white boy doing on a show taped in Harlem?

It was an amazing experience and one of the best and scariest nights of my life. The audience yelled some really hateful things at me when I walked out on to the stage. Things like “go home white boy”. Then I started to sing and everything changed.

What did you sing?

I sang “Get Here” from Oleta Adams.

Did you win?

Damn right, I did. The show launched my career.

Tell us about your new single.
It’s a cover called “Can’t Stop”. I recorded the track with producer Quentin Harris, whom I absolutely adore. He is the best thing to happen to dance music. 

You also have a new music video out.
Yes, for my last track, “I Can’t Get You Off My Mind”. It was shot by Karl Giant, another creative genius.

What is the first thing you will do if McCain wins the election?
