Jason Clayborn is the oldest of six born to Jocelyn Clayborn in Louisville, KY. Jason’s gospel music roots run deep; he is the grandson to Wilma Clayborn, who was the first female gospel music disc jockey for the local gospel radio station. She also owned one of the only gospel music record stores in the state.
At an early age, Jason was singing and playing drums in the local church and in the National Convention of Gospels Choirs and Choruses (NCGCC). He has toured the world with other national artists including several European and African tours with Dr. Ron Kenoly. In 2002, Jason was signed to Tyscot Records as a member of the world-renowned hip-hop gospel group, The Righteous Riders. During this time, he was nominated for three Gospel Music Association (GMA) awards and a Stellar Award. He has also made appearances on BET, TBN, and was a Kellogg’s Choir Competition Spokesperson. In addition, he released three independent projects: MusicWordTieology, Rhythm & Praise Vol. 1, and The Heart Of The People.
Jason has written several hit songs for other artists including: VaShawn Mitchell ("I Worship You" and "Over And Over"), Wess Morgan ("Get Me Thru"), Ricky Dillard ("I Survived It"), and Hezekiah Walker ("You’re All I Need" and "Better"). "Better" went on to peak at number one on the Billboard charts for 18 weeks. It also garnered Jason a Dove Award and nominations at the Stellar Awards, Soul Train Awards, Billboard Awards, and Grammy Awards.
In 2016, Jason founded The Atmosphere Changers (also known as T.A.C.), which is a gospel music choir comprised of young adults (ages 18-34) from Kentucky, Indiana, and Ohio. After just a short period of time, TAC went on to perform at the 100th Anniversary of the Metro United Way, who were celebrating their one-billion dollar fundraising goal to give to local charities.
In 2019, Jason rejoined the Tyscot Records family. Jason Clayborn and The Atmosphere Changers made their radio debut with the release of the single "Praise Belongs To You."
