British Columbia's Jayson Hoover was a member of Jason Hoover And The Epics in 1965.

In 1966 the band changed its name to The Trials of Jayson Hoover. Two singles were released in 1967 before they switched gears and they bowed to psychedelic trends under the name The Anvil Chorus which led to several singles more singles on New Syndrome.

With a name change to the Anvils they attempted to carry on through the ever changing late '60s but eventually fell apart. Hoover was the last man standing and finished his deal with New Syndrome for more single before before going to KAPP for one record. The singles barely climbed into the Top100 on the Canadian charts.

Moving to the larger Mushroom Records in 1974, Heart's Mike Flicker produced a self-titled R & B/Funk album which spawned four singles. Hoover toured with a backing band called Jayson Hoover 'n' Stuff featuring Duris Maxwell (drums) and Brian Newcombe (guitar) among others.

The Trials Of... eventually re-teamed under the name R & B Delivery. The original Jason Hoover & The Epics did a reunion show at the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver in 2001.

Hoover's singles are in-demand for Northern Soul music collectors.
