Heartfelt, Powerful, Passionate, Deep, Sincere. A natural born wordsmith who senses the truth in all of us and transports the listener to a higher place. Scott Jackson is a hidden gem who hits home run after home run out of the park!Don Coleman – A/R Group International
Scott Jackson takes the mirrors down from the walls in his songwriting, exposing his inner soul. He delivers a dynamic score of folk driven pop rock music with a universal theme. Songs that seem recognizable yet are unique with hooky and emotive sounds.
Following his debut release "My World" producer Jerry Wong (Damn The Diva, Bif Naked, Loverboy), who embraced Scott's first single 'What Are We Waiting For' was so impressed that he became Scott's music collaborator. Wong subsequently produced Jackson's current full-length album release "Distractions', a back to front ensemble of strong songwriting, tieing together the rootsy sounds of the American Alt country establishment akin to Ryan Adamas and the Jayhawks with the ache of Brit pop favorites like U2 and Coldplay. When asked what he sounds like, Jackson is unashamed to wear his influences on his sleeve and reply "if you put Tom petty and U2 in a studio together, the Scott Jackson sound is what you might end up with!"
Scott is a founding member of the band MK ULTRA who released the album 'APPLE' that spent numerous weeks at the top of the HMV Independent charts with their single 'Gotta Get On It' that also garnered airplay on subsequent stations in Canada. Scott Jackson's live shows are riveting. Headlining showcases at the New Music West Festival and playing opening slots for acts like Nickleback are some of the memorable performances in SCOTT JACKSON'S career.
Since launching his solo project Scott has sold out shows at premier venues such as The Act Theater in Maple Ridge, Canada and the Tsillan Cellars winery Amphitheater in Chelan Washington, USA. His debut release My World garnered rave press reviews from Tom Harrison (The Vancouver Province) and Jason Warburg (The Daily Vault) to name a few. The songs 'What Are We Waiting For' and 'Welcome To My World' received subsequent airplay on The Quake FM Radio, KOZI FM Radio, Fearless Radio in Chicago, WDNY in New York, and across Canada following the U.S. release of "My World".
