Jason Flinter

The concept of ‘The Song Diner’ was always a dream of Jason’s after years of writing score for the film, broadcast and corporate worlds.

Initially urged on by the success of winning a PRS song writing competition in 2003. Part of the prize was attending a songwriting workshop hosted by Boo Hewerdine. This inspirational workshop convinced Jason to concentrate on honing his song writing craft and soon formed a world percussion ensemble with Simon Carver and both collaboated on a musical which premiered (for one night!) at Bristol’s Colston hall in 2006. The show led to Jason writing an album for Leiza Alpass and has continued to co-write with another of the shows singers - John Telfer. Two of Jason and John’s songs were recently selected for the official CD of the MIDEM festival in Cannes. Jason is currently writing for several Bristol artists and is very proud to have won the UK Song Writing Contest 2011 with a 'Song Diner' team track 'Danger Deep Water'.
