McAtee cradles Godfrey on Wednesday

GODFREY – Jason McAtee will perform with Austin Sprouse at Bakers and Hale, 7120 Montclair Ave., Godfrey at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, September 14.

Jason McAtee is a blue-eyed soul singer with a message for those in pain. He pairs his gravelly voice with moving hymns and heartbreaking ballads. Jason was born in Alton, Illinois to parents William and Renee. From freshman year to his freshman year in college, he worked to become the best baseball player he could be. It wasn’t until he was seventeen that he even thought about music again.
