Jason Palumbo, a junior graphic design major at UMBC practices singing and playing his ukelele while he is home for spring break. Jason performs solo at UMBC open mic nights, and he also sings and plays the keyboard in a five-person band called Maitre D'.
Jason often practices his music at the beach near his house, which allows him to combine his love of music and the outdoors.
Jason began playing the ukelele this summer. He says he wanted to expand his musical talents beyond singing and playing the keyboard.
Jason began performing after he won his high school's version of American Idol in 2008. He says he used to be extremely shy, but performing in front of an audience has made him more outgoing.
Videos of Jason performing are posted on his YouTube channel.
