Jason Benoit is a country music singer-songwriter from The Qalipu First Nation Fox Island River in western Newfoundland on Canada's east coast. Benoit began pursuing his musical career in 2013.[1] His first single was a country rendition of the Armin van Buuren and Trevor Guthrie dance song "This Is What It Feels Like", which peaked on the Billboard Canada Country chart at number 46.[2] The single was included on the country music compilation album, Country Heat 2014.[3] In 2014, Benoit signed his first label deal with the newly formed JV Records/Sony Music Canada and shortly after released "Crazy Kinda Love". On March 9, 2015, Benoit released his third single, "Gone Long Gone". The latter reached the top ten on the Canada Country chart in the summer of 2015.

In July 2015, Benoit received the inaugural CCMA Discovery Atlantic Award from the Canadian Country Music Association for his recent success in the Canadian country music industry.[4]
