Dion Watts Garcia has been a tour manager, artist manager, small independent label owner and worked for music business trade publications since the late 1980s when he transitioned from the military to fighting the good fight for bands throughout North America and Europe. Soul and specifically The Oldies, took root in Dion's life in the 70s as a young travieso in Fresno.

Spinning records became a passion for him in the late 90s at clubs and pubs in the San Francisco Bay Area. Highlights of his record playing career include multiple tours of Europe with the band The InCiters as one of two nightly DJs and also nearly being crushed by a falling body outside of The Mad Dog In The Fog.

Besides producing Seven Inch Soul, Jason manages SomaFM's 9000+ CD physical library and our even larger digital library, Jason hunts down obscure, hard to find music.

Apart from SomaFM, Jason is an artist and illustrator who among other things created the 7" Soul logo. He's also a rabid vinyl collector.
