The Co$t of Life, spearheaded by Jason Irving, emerges as a compelling electronic-pop and rock solo project that transcends genres. Jason’s musical journey traces back to Morrison, Colorado, where a love for sports initially dominated his life. However, the discovery of music, influenced by 80s pop, 90’s punk and grunge, electronica, and cinematic compositions, became an adventurous sanctuary. His high school and college years were defined by his involvement in pop-punk and rock bands, sharing the stage with many national and international acts.

Jason’s life changed directions, and while stationed in Germany during his U.S. Army service, Jason’s passion for travel ignited, leading him to Tokyo after his military release, where he explored a teaching career. Returning to the U.S., he embraced a career in finance and started a family with his wife, Allison, yet his musical ambitions remained latent.

In 2022, Jason’s creativity surged anew, birthing The Co$t of Life—an exploration into nostalgic sounds, blending past influences with modern electronic elements. This project marks a harmonious fusion of Jason’s diverse experiences, encapsulating a sonic odyssey fueled by a lifetime of musical inspiration.
