The magic was obvious, and Jeordie invited him to her gig that night which turned into a "trial by fire" debut performance for the duo. According to Messer, "we played, like, four hours -- I improved the whole night." Jeordie recalled, "it was awesome! It felt so natural; it just worked. It's so nice to have a partner who knows what they're doing on the songs." Although they used just two guitars and two microphones, Jeordie and Jason Messer proved they could outperform most local bands with a full lineup. In July 2005, they won a battle of the bands at the Hard Rock Cafe in Phoenix.
In addition to backing Jeordie, Jason Messer wrote and recorded a handful of his own tracks, including "See Things Differently," which started becoming a staple at Jeordie's performances in 2005. In 2006, his original track "Condoleezza Rice is Really a Man" broke the Top 20 of Neil Young's chart for irreverent songs. The prophetic lyrics boasted, "Condoleezza Rice is really a dish best served cold / He don't have his opinions and does what he's told / Condoleezza Rice might run for President / I don't worry; Barack Obama is gonna represent."
Currently, Jason Messer heads up a local Valley band named Goetta (pronounced 'gedda') as the lead guitarist, lead singer, and lead songwriter.
