Jason Campbell is the principal lead vocalist with a range spanning over
three octaves. He is a songwriter and business manager for Signal Hill.
Jason plays piano and 12-string acoustic guitar in the band. He is also
a solid and animated drummer, as was his father professionally in St.
John's during the 60's and 70's. Jim Ollie Campbell has played
with founding members of April Wine, Sandy Morris of The Wonderful Grand
Band and even Jim Lamb. Jason's musical interests and influences span
many genres from Jazz to Hard Rock, Beatles to Beethoven, and from singers
such as Tony Bennett, Chet Baker, Michael Jackson, Sam Cooke & Elton
John. Often playing piano and guitar simultaneously while singing, he
is a born showman. Notably, Jason does not use monitors of any kind, even
on the biggest of stages, and is a strong opponent to the use of auto-tune
