New album ‘Wilderness’ out now via ANTI- Records
“…a rising star…fantastic.” – The Independent
“Her catchy new songs find comfort and self-reliance in solitude… given a biting edge by production from Mike Ness of Social Distortion.” – Uncut
“A raspy-throated, confident-beyond-her-years songwriter channeling Hank Williams via a somber goth-folk aesthetic.” – Rolling Stone
Jade Jackson is thrilled to release her sophomore album Wilderness, her most personal album yet. Produced by Social Distortion’s Mike Ness, listen to the album HERE. Jackson will perform throughout Europe this month to celebrate, with a single UK show at London’s Old Blue Last on October 1st.
Jackson hails from Santa Margarita in central California, just a few miles from where Buck Owens and Merle Haggard popularized the Bakersfield, California country sound. In her hometown growing up Jade she spent endless nights working at her parents’ restaurant, learning guitar and writing songs at the age of 13. By the time she graduated high school, she had written over 300 songs.
Fast forward to two days after her 20th birthday, Jackson fell from a 15-foot rope swing and was told she would never be able to walk again. Frightened by that news, Jade fought and worked through struggles and many low points. The accident gave her a sense of purpose, direction, and newfound meaning of gratitude. Jade knows how precious life is and takes nothing for granted. The theme of her new work deals heavily with those attitudes and feelings. Read more about her humble small town beginnings and the inspirations behind Wilderness in the Los Angeles Times HERE.
“The message of Wilderness is in how to get through all those tough situations—if you visualize yourself somewhere, all that good energy and intention can get you where you want to be,” Jackson explained.
