Jason Truby

Jason Truby is an American guitarist. He began his career in 1989 when he formed the highly influential band Living Sacrifice as its lead guitarist. Even though he was a founding member of the Arkansas-based band, he left Living Sacrifice in 1997 to spend time with his family. However, in 2003, P.O.D. needed a new guitarist after former band member Marcos Curiel left the band in a controversy. Truby was available at the time to assist them by playing guitar as a temporary replacement to record the band's hit single, "Sleeping Awake," and would become a full-time member soon afterward.

The band released its first album with Truby (Payable on Death) in November 2003, which was the first time the band discarded its rapcore style, which in turn faced much controversy. It went on to sell just over one million records worldwide. The second album the band released with Truby was Testify, which was produced by Glen Ballard and released early 2006. He has performed with such greats as Phil Keaggy, David Beegle, Ashley Cleveland and her husband Kenny Greenberg, has been a guest performer with Phil Keaggy's band Glassharp at the first annual Denver guitar festival.

Truby typically plays Gibson Les Paul Standards and SG live and in the studio. On his solo acoustic album entitled String Theory (2004), however, Truby recorded 24 instrumental tracks, using a total of 19 different acoustic guitars. He typically plays Charis and Ryan acoustics.

His main influences in music are John Coltrane, Monk, U2, G.G. Allin, Phil Keaggy, Wes Montgomery, Segovia, Jimi Hendrix, Bach, Pat Metheny, The Beatles, Brubeck, Stanley Jordan, Coldplay, and Radiohead, to name a few.

In a statement made by the band's manager on their Myspace page, it was officially announced, on December 30, 2006, that Jason Truby had left P.O.D. He (Truby) wrote the following letter to the "Warriors":


Jason Truby here. First of all I want to clarify any questions concerning my involvement with P.O.D. I am no longer a member of P.O.D. I want to thank all of you for your support and love over the past four years. It has been an honor getting the opportunity to spend time with you and sharing music with you. My decision to depart as a member is personal and came before Marcos was considered. I believe in P.O.D. and will be a part of P.O.D forever. They are life long friends. As for myself, I've been working on a project with my good friend Phil Keaggy who is helping me with a vocal album, and also linking-up with Lance Garvin on some tunes as well. None the less, Thanks to all of you for the chance to be a part of this rally for the greater cause. Sometime you have to follow the wind even when you don't know where its leading. I pray the Most High will guide you in His unspeakable love. Good bye for now....

Forever grateful,
Jason Truby
