Billboard top 20 artist Jason Jackson burst onto the scene in 2021 with the release of his debut EP, Movin’ On and hasn’t looked back.
In March of 2022, Jason will be releasing his second single from the Movin’ On EP to radio stations all over the country. The track, “Groove All Night” is a smooth ride featuring guitarist extraordinaire Tim Bowman that is sure to have your foot tapping from start to finish.
Jason grew up in Wilmington, NC and at a young age, started to study music with long time James Brown saxophonist – Leroy Harper Jr.. While still in high school, Jason landed a gig working as a member of the house band at the House of Blues in Myrtle Beach, SC where he performed as the opening act for artists such as: Brian McKnight, Morris Day and the Time, KC and the Sunshine Band, and Michael McDonald.
In 2011, Jason enlisted in the Navy as a musician where he was able to play for audiences all over the world including: China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Cambodia, Vietnam, and Australia. During his first tour, he was awarded the Colonel Finley R. Hamilton Outstanding Military Musician Award and a few months later, he was relocated to the Seventh Fleet Band in Yokosuka, Japan where he lived for over 3 years. During this time, Jason was able to play at some of the most prestigious venues in the area as well as volunteer in several local community bands where he was able to interact one on one with young local musicians. It was during this time that Jason learned that music was truly “the universal language”.
After his military service ended in early 2021, Jason teamed up with contemporary jazz star Adam Hawley to create his first oﬀering as a solo artist. Movin’ On is not only produced by Hawley, but includes him as a featured artist along with Julian Vaughn and Tim Bowman.
“Jason Jackson is one of the most talented up-and-coming artists and saxophonists I’ve worked with. He has an undeniable sound and presence, delivering soulfully with every deftly-placed note. Coupling this with the incredible bass stylings of Julian Vaughn, “All The Way” was a delight producing and is one of tracks I’m most proud of. Look out for Jason in 2021!” –Adam Hawley
“Jason has a natural knack for coming up with super catchy melodies and playing them on his sax with amazing dexterity and a whole lot of soul. He’s got a bright future in the world of instrumental music as this new track featuring guitar great Tim Bowman certainly shows!” –Dave Koz
