Jason Sniderman

aus Wikipedia, der freien Enzyklopädie

Jason Sniderman is a Canadian musician and businessman. He was one of the chief executives of Sam the Record Man,[1] which was established by his father, Sam Sniderman.[1]

Music career

Jason Sniderman was most notably a member of the new wave band Blue Peter, joining towards the end of their run in 1983, in time for the recording and release of their final album, Falling.[2] He has appeared as a guest musician on albums by other Canadian artists, including contributing keyboards on Randy Bachman's album Any Road,[3] as well as Chalk Circle's recording of 20th Century Boy,[4] recordings both produced by fellow Blue Peter member Chris Wardman.[3] He has also played keyboards on Presto and Clockwork Angels by Rush[5] and Don't Cry Too Hard by Leslie Spit Treeo,[6] and playing piano on 6 Blocks by Meryn Cadell.[7] Currently, Sniderman is an Advisory Board Member of the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame[8] and plays shows with Blue Peter a few times a year.

Sam The Record Man

Sam's was started by Sniderman's father, Sam Sniderman, as a sideline selling records in his brother's radio store in the 1930s.[9] The company later grew into a national chain, with a flagship store on Yonge St in Toronto.[10] Sam himself retired in 2000,[10] and the majority of the chain was closed in 2001 after declaring bankruptcy.[9] Jason Sniderman, along with his brother Bobby, were able to save the store's iconic neon signs, and re-opened the Yonge St location in 2002.[10] An attempt at building the Sam's brand with online sales was not enough,[11] however, with the rise of mp3 downloads and competition from chains such as HMV down the street, Sam's was forced to close in 2007.[12]
