Jason Ringenberg (born November 22, 1958 in Kewanee, Illinois) is an American musician and lead singer of Jason & the Scorchers. He is also a songwriter and guitarist.
The band had several minor hits, including "Golden Ball and Chain" and a rock version of Bob Dylan's "Absolutely Sweet Marie."
Ringenberg was most influential in the mid-1980s when the indie country/rock fusion movement was at its height.
