This creative journey began in 2015 when Jason co-produced Carol’s first album. Having become firm friends they (unexpectedly) decided to team up in 2017, to embark on the entrepreneurial adventure that is The Stellar Effect.
The Stellar Effect has evolved over the years, but the building blocks of collaboration, connection, creativity and fun remain the foundation.
Both performers in their own right, Carol and Jason understand the POWER OF SOUND! Coupled with a passion for storytelling, The Stellar Effect captures sound as a way to transform both the teller and the listener.
