Jason Saulnier Biography
With the boom in technology, the Internet and YouTube presented themselves to him as an obvious opportunity to be on a virtual world stage. In 2009, his two Ozzy Osbourne audition videos on YouTube grabbed the attention of the media and even the Osbourne camp. Both videos tallied upwards of 88,000 hits at 5 star ratings in three months. This led to an invitation to showcase the famous Randy Rhoads Tribute spotlight solo as well as play Ozzy Osbourne’s Suicide Solution at Rhoadsfest 2010. Jason was the only Canadian invited to play this notable concert that featured appearances by Kelle Rhoads and Michael Angelo Batio.
Always creating, Jason also produces and edits his own music videos. In 2014, a metal cover version of “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” by the Charlie Daniels Band received over 100k views. Other covers include Corey Hart’s “Sunglasses at Night” and Rick Derringer’s “Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo” and most recently, Steel Panther’s “That’s When You Came In”. That recording and video earned the most views and a top 5 spot in their Music Meets Video contest.
Also the president and founder of Music Legends.ca, Jason has interviewed over 900 music legends, including Rob Halford of Judas Priest, Zakk Wylde of Black Label Society and Ian Gillan of Deep Purple and formerly of Black Sabbath.
