Spring is here !

March 29, 2015

Wow - what a long, cold, snowy winter that was eh ?
Despite the weather, it was a busy winter with some benefit shows (Sick Kids, Voices Carry) , trips to play in Owen Sound, Ottawa and then putting in some time locally around K-W, Guelph, Brantford . . .etc.


February was a tough month - and the music community here is still reeling from the untimely death of our good friend Steve Toms - fantastic bass player, having played in many local bands over the years and most recently with Busted Flat blues-rockers Daddy Long Legs. I knew Steve for 15 years and he was always passionate about music, playing live and seeing bands. We're really, really going to miss his mischievous, fun-loving personality and his talent. RIP my dear friend. I hope you're hanging out somewhere with Matt Osborne - another great local talent taken from us way too soon.


In recent weeks, I've been working on two separate projects:  a new album of acoustic material with Teenage Fanclub's Norman Blake;  and a more electric band album with the help of my longtime drummer Andy Miller and local talents Scott Fitzpatrick and Ryan Allen.  Stay tuned for more details.


The spring into summer will be busy as well, with shows in Hamilton, Guelph, another visit to the National Capital Region, Canadian Music Week and more. Check out the 'Dates' page for all the specifics.

The talented Mr. Duane Rutter just helped me complete videos for 4 new acoustic songs, with the help of Guelph's Latent Image Design - and as the editing is being finished, some good reviews have been coming in from Europe for The Acoustic Sessions album. Skip over to the Press page and have a look see.

That's about all the updates for now.
Go out and take in some local shows - support local musicians and venues at the same time - and don't forget your local record store !  Record Store Day is coming up quick on April 18 ! Head down to Encore Records across from the Kitchener Market and pick up some limited edition vinyl ! http://www.encorerecords.ca
Bye for now . . . . . 

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 !
