After 30 years JASON GWEN finally came out as a triple threat. Half of his life he has been mastering the craft of acting and dance.
Next to Film Work, Music will get all the attention the upcoming period. He debuted in the music scene in 2017, at the Milkshake Festival and Paradiso in the same weekend. Since then, he has played at iconic stages in the likes of Amsterdam Dance Event, Dutch Design Week Music, Mainstage Dam Square /Pride Amsterdam, in The Amsterdam Museum, on Amsterdam Central Station, and the Uitmarkt.
Embraced by the queer community, Jason is embarking on breaking into the mainstream this season with his universal rap over house tech. An immense addiction for the bass and the percussions, and high energy shows, often complimented with dancers from the ballroom and curvy scene.
