It wasn’t long before Jackson took up guitar at age 12 that his band, Sapphire rocked the Southwestern Middle School dance with songs from Van Halen, Motley Crue, Bon Jovi and Ratt. In his college years at Miami University in Oxford, OH, he shifted to the music of James Taylor, Cat Stevens, Tom Petty, U2, Pearl Jam and honed his cover-gig chops playing the local bars and parties around campus. After a short stint in law school in Buffalo, NY, he defiantly went all-in as a full time musician. Twenty+ years later, having released 7 full length albums of original material and with over 4,000 gigs under his belt, Jackson is at the top of his game as a professional solo acoustic artist/performer.
While his songs, “Rio”, “Gasoline and Matches”, “One More 4th Of July, “Bleeding” and “The Old Me” were in regular rotation at small/medium market HOT AC and Adult Contemporary radio stations across the US, Jackson stayed busy playing not only original music clubs and festivals, but also cover venues and private parties throughout the East Coast and Midwest. At the cover gigs, he differentiated himself from other solo musicians by learning a vast range of familiar radio hits that would appeal to a diverse audience. Jackson’s impressive vocal range opened the door to almost limitless options and he worked hard to closely mimic the original versions, encouraging the crowd to sing along. Over time, he built a large loyal following who poured into his shows with requests at the ready! The consummate crowd-pleaser, Jackson takes pride in his ability to play something for everyone.
Now a husband and father living on Florida’s Emerald Coast, Jackson spends less time on tour and is focused on playing private event shows. Planning an event further from NW Florida? With enough notice, Jackson will travel.
