When he’s not touring as bassist with Bob Mould or Superchunk, Chicago musician Jason Narducy focuses on his band Split Single, instead of his family and children. Split Single’s two full-length albums have received critical praise from Spin (“Infectious”) and the AV Club (“an impeccable display of detailed songcraft”). The Chicago Tribune’s Greg Kot describes Jason as “…a first-rate songwriter and band leader.” Narducy’s mom loves his music, too.
Jason is also the mastermind behind "The Sexiest Elbows In Rock," an episodic web comedy featuring Fred Armisen, Michael Shannon, Jeff Tweedy, Frank Black, and others.
At age ten, Jason formed a band called Verböten with some friends. The band played at clubs in Chicago, school gymnasiums in the Chicago area, and on NBC’s Kidding Around TV program. The band broke up before he went through puberty but was later featured in Foo Fighter’s HBO Sonic Highways series because Dave Grohl credits the band with introducing him to punk rock (his cousin was the singer in Verböten).
Jason has played bass with Robert Pollard, (Guided By Voices), Eddie Vedder, and Robbie Fulks. He has lost countless guitar picks over the years, often under the couch and just out of reach.
Jason is a featured performer in Margaret Cho’s Psycho special on Showtime (2015) and the Split Single video for “Untry Love” is featured on Funny Or Die (2017).
