Biography

According to vocalist Jason Gleason, ActionReaction's spark and individuality relies not on any single member, but on their combined personality and styles: We're all very different people, but when it comes to the band, those differences are what makes ActionReaction special.

After leaving his post as front man for Further Seems Forever in 2004, Jason left sunny Florida and headed north to New Jersey, joining Bella and Salvatore from the band, Element 101. An intricate web of history, laced with blue-collar bindings, carried them through days of construction work and nights of music-making. It was so satisfying to just create without an agenda or boundaries; ideas would just flow freely, Gleason muses. Moving in together under one roof, the trio started taking their music more seriously and fine tuned their jam sessions into songs. We all have very different backgrounds in rock, classical, and funk and have been really getting into reggae and soul lately. Every band hopes to do something unique and move beyond what has been done in the past. Hopefully our music is part of this evolution and people can and will identify with it. The three agree on a few bands over the past few years which have influenced them: Sunny Day Real Estate, Smashing Pumpkins, Beck, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Elbow, Radiohead, Pearl Jam, Outkast, David Bowie, ELO and Queen.
