Jason & deMarco have had the opportunity to perform at numerous high profile events including the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Awards in Los Angeles, the Matthew Shepard Foundation's annual gala in Denver, and the 2006 Human Rights Campaign Gala at the Waldorf Astoria New York." They have also been a part of the Human Rights Campaign star-studded benefit two-pack CD album celebrating marriage equality, "Love Rocks", alongside artists such as Christina Aguilera, Pink, and The Dixie Chicks.
Jason & deMarco celebrated 16 years together this past summer. In 2011, after touring almost a decade together with their music, they welcomed twin sons through surrogacy, documented in Jason’s recently released book, “Anything is Possible - The Journey of Surrogacy” available on Amazon.com.
Shortly after the births of their sons, Jason & deMarco announced the launch of their non-profit, (S.A.F.E.) Safe, Affirming, Family Environment in 2011 with the opening of a drop-in center for homeless youth. In less than eight months over 400 youth came through SAFE’s doors and received services. When relocating to Tennessee in 2013 and reviewing the data it was clear that the majority of the youth served were homeless due to aging out of the foster system. “In relocating to Nashville, rather than opening another drop-in center, we felt we could better serve youth and the community by helping to prevent them from being homeless by offering resources and programs to foster parents and foster youth while in care", says Jason.
It was in Franklin, Tennessee, in a village called Leipers Fork, that Jason & deMarco purchased a six acre ranch that they have named ‘Gratidude Ranch’. “Our hope is that the ranch will be a place where families can come to experience community, nature, working and playing with animals and one another and experience a little magic in their lives”, says deMarco.
S.A.F.E. currently operates on the ranch offering several programs to foster parents, foster children and foster agencies and organizations. An annual Easter egg hunt is the largest event offered to foster families where over 100 children have attended the past three years. All 27 animals on the ranch are therapeutic to the children that visit.
In addition to supporting the foster community, Jason and deMarco hope to also educate the community at large on the desperate need of foster homes in Middle Tennessee, hoping to recruit and connect those interested in learning more about fostering with the Department of Child Services (D.C.S.).
So, Jason & deMarco obviously are busy. But where does all of this leave the duo’s music? “We’re living in Music City”, says deMarco. “Although we’re not touring full time (Jason is a local real estate agent and deMarco is a Health and Wellness coach), we will always make music”. The duo's last release was "Christmas Reflections" in 2016 and they are continuing to song-write and record. They will continue raising awareness and funds on tour while sharing through story and song. Visit www.jasonanddemarco.com or www.safehouseforall.org for more info.
