    Jason Wilkes grew up in the small town of Cedartown, Georgia. Jason's parents knew he had musical gifting when he starting playing drums by the age of six. At that time, he also started singing southern gospel with his older brother and younger sister. Over the years, Jason's vocals developed into something special and different. 

    At the age of 16, he joined a band called High Flight Society as the lead singer and rhythm guitar player. Over a period of 12 years, the band released three records and worked with a few different record labels including Word Records/Warner Brothers Records. After the tour for their last release commenced, they began playing as the band for Sam Hunt in local bars and at colleges. After the sudden death of their drummer in 2012, they discontinued touring. 

    Jason then joined the well-known Christian rock band, Disciple, as the bass player, back ground vocalist and co-lead vocalist. After three years of intense touring, he decided to come off of the road to pursue a path in music that catered more toward what he wanted to achieve long-term. In November 2015, he released a solo EP under the artist name of WILKES. This was a nine-thousand dollar project funded one-hundred percent by fans via KickStarter. 

    Most recently, Jason decided to redirect his music career path to the country/pop genre as a songwriter. This action has lead to an overwhelming response from fans, which encouraged Jason. After compliments from various writers and publishers that they saw him more as an artist due to his unique voice and vocal range, Jason decided to pursue being a country/pop artist as well (still under the WILKES name). Jason currently resides at Lake Arrowhead in Waleska, Georgia.
