Jason Couse is a Juno Award- and Polaris Prize-nominated performer, songwriter and composer. As a longtime member of the art-pop duo, The Darcys, he has toured abroad, charted on commercial radio, released four critically acclaimed albums, and had songs synced in network series television and major motion pictures.

Beyond his frequent collaborations as a co-writer and producer, he currently is establishing himself as a composer for film, with a number of festival-ready projects slated for release later this year.


The music Showcases are produced cinematic works based on an original score or song created by our 2018 Slaight Music Residents. Filmed in a single day, these Showcase pieces celebrate the distinct talent of our songwriters and composers and illustrate how music brings life to the moving image.
