Jason Rodriguez- HeartStrings

Jason Rodriguez is a melodic progressive metal instrumentalist who released a stellar album last year titled “HeartStrings”.  He is not of the norm for an instrumentalist….sure he’s a great guitar player but he’s not a “show off” if you know what I mean.  He’s written an album based […]
