Jason Warner (b. 1975) and deMarco DeCiccio (b. 1976) are the titular members of the pop music duo Jason & deMarco. Jason & deMarco are perhaps best described as a gay Christian rock band. They are partners not only in making music of a mostly inspirational/spiritual nature, but also in life, as sweethearts. A quote from Warner from an interview with the magazine the Advocate: "It is man that says Homosexuals will go to hell, not God."

According to their web site, Jason and deMarco met in 2001 in Los Angeles, and after dating for a year, they began making music together. They have released five albums and a single together as of 2006:
* The Spirit of Christmas (2002)
* Songs for the Spirit (2003)
* Spirit Pop (2004)
* "Trying to Get to You - the remixes" (2006)
* Till the End of Time (2006)
With the international release of their album, Till the End of Time, Jason & deMarco became familiar names to music fans around the world. Their first single "Trying to Get to You" climbed the Billboard Charts and their second single, "This is Love" won "Music Video of the Year 2006" on MTV's LOGO. A remix of "This is Love" along with their newest dance release, "It's Okay", both produced by DJ Scotty K, were both added to Abercrombie & Fitch's playlist and have been heard in stores worldwide.
Their autobiographical and controversial, documentary-film, We're All Angels, from director Robert Nunez, currently airs on the SHOWTIME NETWORK where fans are invited to take a behind-the-scenes look at the public and private lives of these rising pop stars, who are gay, spiritual, and in love. The film chronicles the lives of the two singers as they perform all over the country in dance clubs, at pride events, and even in churches. The movie takes a look at how their openness about their sexuality often pits them against evangelical Christianity, while their faith at times meets with resistance from the gay community. As Jason & deMarco prepare to release a new album to appeal to a wider mainstream audience, We're All Angels turns the spotlight on how they integrate their sexuality and spirituality within their relationship and professional careers.
Jason & deMarco have had the opportunity to perform at numerous high profile events including the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Awards in Los Angeles, the Matthew Shepard Foundation's annual gala in Denver, and the 2006 Human Rights Campaign Gala at the Waldorf Astoria New York." They have also been a part of the Human Rights Campaign star-studded benefit two-pack CD album celebrating marriage equality, Love Rocks, alongside artists such as Christina Aguilera, Pink, and The Dixie Chicks.
The duo have worked with producer Alan Lett, with additional production from Grammy Award winning producer, Joe Hogue (LeAnn Rimes, Michael W. Smith, Carmen), Rhys Fulber (Sinead O'Connor, Josh Groban, Conjure One), and Eddie X and Luigie Gonzalez (Ricky Martin, Barbara Streisand, etc.).
While Jason & deMarco tour internationally in various venues, they also continue sharing their music and message with the community of faith around the world. The duo performs over one hundred concerts per year.
