"You're a good songwriter, specially the Brimstone song I liked a lot!" (Mike Garson,keyboards David Bowie/Smashing Pumpkins/NIN) 

 

"Holland's got his own Brad Roberts(singer Crash Test Dummies)!" (Simone Walraven, Dutch Radio DJ/Presentator) 

 

"Is it his voice, sounding unhesitated like Johnny Cash's but warm like a Jim Reeves? 

Are it the influences of Cash, Elvis, Tom Waits, Tony Joe White and David Bowie 

he's using in his captivating songs? It's a combination. And based on this, one could and should only wish him a succesful career, 

that a hard working talented man earns" (review Platomania)

 

"An outcast, a rebel 'vage', dark, cinematic, madrugada, tarantino soundscapes"

 

All this combined could well describe 'Dishking' in it's essence. 

Dutch singer/songwriter Jason de Laat is the main figure behind 'Dishking'

 

  ****************************                        Biography                      ******************************************

 

A many years have gone by since a young punkblues guy decided to pull out the bung of past endeavours and actually started to do dishes or whatever job in order to return, serve , invest and dish, his own genuine world of art and music.

 

January 23 2009, signed by record company AG Music (Alkmaar), DISHKING released the debut album "The power of a loaded gun". 

It seemed inspired by the sound, that was developed during the 50’s in the Sun Studios in Memphis. 

 

DISHKING’s 2nd album called "Sell yourself in Gold" has been released early 2010, an in-depth album about Dishking’s life & future endeavours. 

Of both albums 3 singles have been promoted on national radio namely "Work this Thang" "Fall on Me" and "Backdoor Loverman"

 

2014, a third album to finish the triptych, has been distributed online and worldwide April 12th 2014.

It's called '1O1' by far the most selfreflecting 'Dishking' album. From this album,

a single called 'Brimstone' had been released in December 2013. 

 

2017, ever since the release and re-release of the third album '1O1' , a many songs have been recorded for a long awaited full physical album. Several new songs are to be found online, as a single and video both on youtube & streaming platforms.

Three most recent songs are 'Building a Blue Sky' 'Where we Belong' and 'Jezebel'.

 

Dishking is in search for a label, publisher and distribution company to  invest in having this physical album realised and released.

 

..Meanwhile the music  of Dishking is an ongoing process  of experimenting/recording/performing which cannot be  paused since it's like blood flowing and needed like breathing air.
