Jason LeValley caught the rock ‘n’ roll bug around the age of 13 and continues to have an insatiable ear for new music. He has helped raise thousands of dollars for charitable organizations through a number of special benefit shows. A singer/songwriter, Jason co-founded, managed, and promoted a recurring comedy show called the Club Congress Comedy Fiasco and has written about music for periodicals in Arizona and California. LeValley got started in radio as a college student at the University of Redlands, gaining three years of valuable radio experience at Tucson’s KXCI.
LeValley also has a Master’s in Counseling from Santa Clara University and a passion for helping others. He has a background in mental health and has spent 18 years working as a high school counselor. He published an e-book about bullying (and music) called Caitlin Sings a Song.
Mark Mason has been part of the Tucson music scene for over two decades as a drummer, bassist, guitarist, keyboard player, singer, and sound technician. Mark is CIO at Southwest Strings, and regularly performs and records with local bands.
Sivine is a New Jersey native who has been a devout music fan since day one. She began learning to play guitar at age 6 and started singing and songwriting by age 8. At 16 she was working for music festivals and magazines in New York City.
Shortly after moving to Tucson, she continued her pursuit of the business side of music as well as working with non-profits. Today, she owns and operates Brass & Black Bookkeeping and is the Treasurer for the Downtown Radio Board of Directors. She has a passion for helping businesses grow financially.
Sivine has also dealt with depression and anxiety lifelong and music has always acted as a remedy for her. Downtown Radio’s advocacy for mental health via the Depression Sessions and providing music to the community attracted Sivine’s interest in serving the station.
