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 !
