New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Los Angeles based multi-instrumentalist, producer and NASA research consultant JASON ACHILLES will be combining his passion for rock'n'roll and science on Monday, August 19 in Pasadena, CA at Der Wolf as part of CalTech's monthly "Astronomy on Tap" series with a lecture on his work with NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory developing a microphone system for the Mars 2020 rover along with a musical performance from his two-piece instrumental / experimental rock duo.

Backed by drummer Forrest Mitchell, JASON ACHILLES creates his music live and organically with ACHILLES performing guitar, bass and keys simultaneously. The duo released their debut full-length album COMEDOWN in 2016, which was praised by No Depression for its "slick guitar tones, enchanting as they intertwine through each and every song on the record." Earlier this year, the band debuted a special UK pressing of their sophomore EP DISCØ in the midst of their second European tour. Both releases were produced and recorded by ACHILLES at his boutique analog-digital studio in Los Angeles, Organic Audio Recorders, where he's produced artists including Dizzy Reed (Guns N' Roses), and remixes for the likes of Katy Perry, The Beach Boys, Ariana Grande and more.

ACHILLES is also a contracted scientist for NASA and is currently working on developing microphone design for the 2020 Mars rover. Read more about his work with NASA and how he's able to combine his music career and passion for astronomy in a recent interview with SPACE.COM:
