Somewhere between a musician and singer-songwriter, is where you will find Jackson Lawrence. A classically trained violinist since the age of 8, Jackson has created a musical style that is truly his own. A native of the north Georgia foothills’, he gained inspiration from his surroundings. From Motown, to classic rock, to bluegrass, to country, and anything in between. These are the sounds that crafted his soulful down-to-earth style. In a digital age where anything can appear as it’s not.
Jackson Lawrence is a what you see, is what you get type of artist.
His new EP “Heartaches and Love Letters” was recorded at the all analog studio ‘Welcome to 1979’ in Nashville Tn.
“I wanted to created something different with this EP. I wanted to get back to the roots of music and that’s why we decided to track on analog tape. These songs are real, passionate and genuine. I did not want any pitch correction used on any song or instrument. Our intention was to capture the raw emotion of all the songs I wrote.”
Bobby Mckee and Jackson co-produced the EP and assembled a band that consisted of some of the best musicians in Nashville. Drums: Stan Saxon, Electric Guitar: Bobby Mckee, Bass: Micheal C. Steele, Organ & Piano: Billy Livsey, Acoustic Guitar: Ed Smoake, Steel Guitar: Smith Curry, Violin & Acoustic Guitar: Jackson Lawrence, Backing Vocals: Mike Rogers, Percussion: Cameron McClaren.
“Of all the songs on this project, I’m very proud of the song ‘Alive.’ I wrote it the night before we recorded vocals and I did not have any intention to record it. At the end of an afternoon of recording, we had a few mins, and I decided to lay something down just to see how it sounded. What you hear on the recording is the first take. No overdubs, just me and a guitar.” Jackson has the opportunity to share the stage with some of country music’s biggest stars and legends, including; Luke Bryan, Steve Wariner, Josh Thompson, Ty Herndon. Along with his solo career, Jackson has been a touring multi-instrumentalist for several artists over the years. He has had the privilege of preforming at historic venues such as the Grand Ole Opry, Red Rocks Amphitheater, and the Ryman Auditorium.
“Jackson is, without a doubt, one of the most talented young artists that we have had on the show. Expecting big success for this talented singer, songwriter and musician. He will go far,”-Uncle Rich WEKS.
