For as long as Jason Tanzer can remember, he dreamed of becoming an artist. Not one to be pigeonholed into any one category of the entertainment industry, the Los Angeles native immersed himself in “the biz” – exploring, studying, and mastering as many different facets of the industry as he could – and, as a result, has turned that childhood dream into an impressive and highly respected career as a professional musician, songwriter, author, and prolific entertainment producer, whose production credits include (but are not limited to) countless records, films, television pilots, live theatrical productions, and concerts. Currently living and working in Las Vegas, Nevada, Tanzer is, also, the founder, owner, and C.E.O. of Dustree Productions Inc., a full-service production company and record label that has raised the bar and set the standard for successfully producing in all mediums not just in “The Entertainment Capital of the World”, but internationally, as well.
Over the years, Tanzer has worked with such diverse artists as Clockwise (RCA 2001), Franky Perez (Lava 2003), Industry (2004), NBC’s “Nashville Star” Finalists, Third Town (2008), The Objex (Crownn Recording Group), OK! TV star, Jaymes Vaughan, Chippendales stars, Jaymes & James, from CBS’ “The Amazing Race” Season 21 (2013), “American Idol” Season 9’s Sham Lewis (2014), and Maren Wade from NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” and “Star Tomorrow” and FOX’s “Thirty Seconds to Fame” (2014).
Tanzer has, also, lent his talents to the independent films “Bouncing Vegas”, “The Street Sweeper”, and “Creep”. In addition, he has created the reality show, “Babysitting the Bands”, that is, currently, under consideration and has authored the book, “Start A Successful Cover Band”, slated to be released in 2015.
As a record producer, Tanzer is equally as eclectic and has been responsible for placing numerous tracks on iTunes’ Dance, Rock, Pop, Soul, Funk, Hip-Hop, and R&B charts over the years. In just the past three years alone, Tanzer has written, produced, and performed on numerous singles including “Tonight”*, “Light Up The Skies”* , “#SEXTING”, “Easy Love”, “Round The World”*, “Last Word”*, “The Last Goodbye”*, “All Night”*, “I Want Your Lovin”*, “Woman”*, “Not Giving Up”*, “Shoo-Bop (Bitch)”*, “A Boy Like You”*, and “Heartbreak”*.
(“*” indicate songs mixed by Juno Award Winner, Dan Brodbeck, 2010’s “Recording Engineer of the Year” for his work on the songs “Apple of My Eye” and “Be Careful” from Dolores O’Riordan’s album, “No Baggage”.)
A sought-after live theatrical producer as well, Jason Tanzer has been developing the world-premieres of several stage productions including “HIP HOPera – The Musical”, “Confessions Of A Showgirl” (created by Maren Wade and the writer and producer of the hit sitcom “Roseanne”, Stevie Ray Fromstein), and “Wouldn’t It Be Good” (created by Broadway star, Douglas Crawford). Most recently, Tanzer was named Creative Director and Producer of “Pawn It Or Keep It Live”, a full-scale touring production game show he created featuring Les and Seth Gold, stars of Tru TV’s hit reality show, “Hardcore Pawn”.
It’s not the sheer body of Jason Tanzer’s resume that’s most impressive, but, rather, the care and professionalism that has gone into that work that distinguishes him from so many others in the entertainment industry. A self-proclaimed “perfectionist”, Tanzer prides himself on his work ethic and works tirelessly to carefully nurture, develop, and maximize the potential of each artist and every project he takes on. It’s no wonder he has created a name for himself, earned the respect of so many industry professionals, and has continued to be a driving force in the often fickle worlds of music, stage, and screen. In fact, just recently, Tanzer was awarded the distinction of being named one of “Las Vegas’ Top 100 Men Of The Year” by “MYVEGAS Magazine” (2015). All things considered, it’s clear that that boy from Los Angeles has realized his dream of becoming an artist and there’s no reason not to believe that Jason Tanzer isn’t just getting started.
