Jason Ringenberg (born on November 22, 1958 in Kewanee, Illinois) is an American musician, and lead singer of Jason & the Scorchers. He is also a songwriter and guitarist.
The band had several minor hits, including "Golden Ball and Chain" and a blistering rock version of Bob Dylan's "Absolutely Sweet Marie."
Ringenberg was especially influential in the mid-1980s when the indie country/rock fusion movement was at its height. His music, and that of similar bands, served as the roots for the "alt country" genre that would arise in the 1990s.
