Jason Buel was born in Sarasota, Florida. He is currently studying film and popular culture at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina. He edits poetry submissions for The Peel literary magazine, teaches summer classes in film studies and digital video production, and works as a research assistant.
When Jason Buel was in a rock-band called the Royals, he played some shows to metalheads and was met with indifference. When the band broke out a cover of "Computer Blue", however, everyone noticed. Here, Buel takes us on a journey into what precisely made Prince a figure that could transcend genres so easily, and why his songs are just so ripe for covering.
