Azwel is a project that involves songwriter Jason Perrillo and a brand new live band consisting of Joe Lorge (guitar/backing vocals) Gregg Steele (bass/backing vocals), Johnny Zaletel (drums/percussion), and Randy Bennis(Keyboards.) For the past 13 years, he has been recording and producing his own independently released albums in his New York studio. He describes the music as melodic, eclectic catchy pop/rock with songs that are influenced by various styles of music. The sound is often compared to britpop/rock artists.

A debut album was completed in 2003. The styles have always changed from album to album. Depending on the album or track, the instrumentation varies greatly from song to song with electric/acoustic guitars to various electric pianos, organs, brass, woodwind and strings.

"Perrillo calls his music "interesting melodic pop," an understatement to say the least. That's like calling Jimi Hendrix's music "unusual rock." - NY Newsday

Azwel's music is always filled with interesting chord progressions, catchy melodies, thought-out arrangements and vocal harmonies.

Jason plays many different instruments and has a lot of live and studio experience with his own music as well as being a casual session keyboard/guitarist for other acts.

Most of the albums are available to download for free on the official website with the choice of optional donations depending on how much the listener enjoys the album. Over the years, Jason has also collaborated with many other online artists and has a project in the works with Argentinian pop artist, Julian Murias.

Throughout the years Azwel's songs have been reviewed online and have gotten very positive feedback on various blogs, radio stations as well as some very positive reviews from major publications such as the New York Newsday. Azwel's songs have also been featured in Hollywood major motion pictures(Let The Game Begin), independent film soundtracks, and compilations put together by several international independent labels.

Azwel's most recent album entitled,"From Now On" which expands the sound even further. It has been recieving excellent feedback from both critics and fans:

"Most everyone who tries to go after this genre just imitates and recreates what's already been done. What we get here is something new. There's traces of influence, but the sound is genuine." - 4DAM.net

"Azwel’s “From Now On” is studious, well-crafted pop made perfect. " - Skope Magazine

"If you are looking for a beautiful album that is both soothing and catchy, this is the record for you." - Gashouse Radio
