Tin Foil Hat is the one-man-band of Asheville musician Jared Hooker. After studying Guitar at Berklee College of Music and receiving a B.A. in vocal performance at UNC-Asheville Jared embarked on an endeavor to blend indie rock, jazz and classic video game music together as synth-pop that satisfies casual and nerdy listeners alike.
The Volt Per Octaves
The phrase "family activity," for most Americans, means a night of Pictionary or a trip to the beach. For the Montoyas, it means gathering up their Moog synthesizers and crafting bass-heavy, fuzzed-out space jams as the Volt per Octaves. That would make Nick and Anna's daughter, Eva—who is entering her teenage years and should, by all rights, be harboring a massive crush on Justin Bieber just about now—one of the instrument's youngest icons.

What one first notices about singer/songwriter Jason Daniello is his nearly ever-present smile and infectiously positive attitude. Scratch that most appealing surface just a little deeper and the true depth and breadth of his talent begins to emerge.
A multi-instrumentalist who strummed his first guitar looking out over the red rock mesas and sagebrush of a tiny uranium mining town in New Mexico, Jason combines rockish folk and moody pop with a vaguely psychedelic undertone that evokes "an air of desert-at-midnight desolation." Add in evocative lyrics that describe everything from the mundane task of taking out the garbage to life´s much weightier struggles and you´ll begin to understand what makes Jason Daniello and his music so special.
