Happy September everyone !

September 25, 2014
The band and I had a fantastic CD release show earlier this month for the new album, The Acoustic Sessions, at one of my all-time favourite venues, The Jane Bond.  And in just a few short days, I will be throwing boxes of cds and my guitar into my car and hitting the road for a tour that will take me all the way across Canada and out through the Prairies, ending in Vancouver Island.  I will be on the road for pretty much the entire month of October, and I’m looking forward to seeing friends in every province and playing a bunch of my favourite venues - and a few new ones - along the way.  
 
The Acoustic Sessions is a stripped-down, rootsy ‘retrospective’ of songs from my catalogue and I had a great time recording it with my talented sideguy, Mr. Chris Boyne, and Norman Blake from Teenage Fanclub. I thought it would be good to do an album with a more simple production-sense - more representative of what I sound like on tour solo.
 
“The Acoustic Sessions is perhaps the cleanest and sharpest representation of Jackson’s strengths as a singer, songwriter and guitarist,” says Patrick Finch, NightLife - Sept. 2014
“The Acoustic Sessions boasts a live-of-the-floor vibe and the vocals are front and centre. Jackson has never sounded stronger and more self-assured ....it’s hands down my favourite of her albums” says Robert Reid, The Waterloo Region Record, Sept. 2014
 
So far so good !  I hope to see you somewhere out there along that Great-Canadian Highway - cheers !

Hey folks,

It's been a long, cold, bitter winter - here's looking forward to what's coming up for the spring and summer !

I've just finished up an acoustic retrospective album with the talented Chris Boyne and Norman Blake - I should have copies in my hand by April !  I've got some local shows and Ontario shows coming up - check them out under 'Dates' - including The Manx in Ottawa this April with the fantastic Slo' Tom, and in July at the lovely Maja's Garden on Manitoulin Island.  And I've got plans to take this new album for a tour through Western Canada this year. Last year was so much fun, I'm going to start doing that trek regularly :)

This fall, I hope to release a full band record of brand new songs, with more local shows to follow up the album's release.  It looks like 2014 is shaping up to be a busy year full of new albums, lots of touring and playing around Ontario. Hope to catch you at a show sometime soon!  Cheers and keep warm !

Happy New Year News !

Happy New Year !

I am starting to do a new recording.  It's going to be an acoustic retrospective.  Very stripped down and available only at shows and from Busted Flat.

I am recording with Norman Blake (Teenage Fanclub) and will have Chris Boyne and a few other friends contributing.

Late spring/ early summer will see me start on the next studio album !  I have a bunch of new songs and I can't wait to get working on them !!

Thanks for all your supoort last year !  I am looking forward to seeing you all again out on the road !!
