Jackson James Smith
There is a certain appeal that comes with honest songwriting. Iconic musicians from previous generations created timeless songs with their honesty, creativity and emotionality.
Jackson James Smith hopes to follow in their footsteps. After picking up a guitar at 13, the now 23 year old is creating his own brand of blues-influenced music with a desire to convey personal experiences and thoughts. His dual blend of creative lyricism and musical expertise is akin to modern performers like Matt Corby and John Mayer. Jackson's songs relay his thoughts on life and the situations experienced during emotional extremes.
By conveying the lowest of lows and the highest of highs, heartache and elation, Jackson creates instantly relatable songs for people to cherish and connect with.
