Songwriter, Producer and Remixer
Jason Deere has made a career out of writing hit songs and developing hit artists. He has written songs recorded by Little Big Town, LeAnn Rimes, Jessica Simpson, Jim Brickman, SHeDAISY, Be Be Winans, Natalie Grant, Point of Grace, Wanessa Camargo, Leonardo, Luiza Possi, The Wreckers, James Wesley, Chad Brock and Due West, and he has a lengthy list of film and television credits (including Tim Allen’s Santa Clause 2, The Nativity Story and Letters To God). When he’s not writing, Deere is devoted to helping other artists become major label recording successes such as SHeDAISY, Due West, Ryan Shupe & the Rubberband and Little Big Town.
Deere's career had quite a springboard in 1999 when the first act that he had extensively worked with (SHeDAISY) was signed to Disney’s Lyric Street Records. Deere co-wrote five songs on their platinum debut album The Whole SHeBANG, including three top ten hits. He spent more than five years working with one of the most successful songwriters of our generation, Diane Warren, producing demo recordings on her songs. He has also produced music with American Idol Season 5 Winner Taylor Hicks, Wanessa Camargo, Ryan Shupe & The Rubberband (Hey Hey Hey, 2004 Pearl Award for Contemporary Album Of The Year), Due West, Carmen Rasmusen and Eric e Henrique. With his remixing partner Silvio Richetto, Deere had a run of hit single remixes for artists like Jamie Johnson, Joe Nichols, Lady Antebellum and the best known being Trace Adkins’ Honkytonk Badonkadonk.
In 1999 Deere produced BMG’s Brazilian Recording artist Wanessa Camargo’s self-titled debut album. The success of this album led to Deere producing six consecutive albums on Camargo. Deere also wrote many of her hits over the years including O Amor Não Deixa, Tanta Saudade, Gostar de Mim, Um Dia…Meu Primeiro Amor, and Sem Querer. Deere had more than 50 songs recorded in the Brazilian market and 9 hit singles with Camargo, Leonardo and Louisa Possi.
