Born: January 4, 1986
Newly signed to US label Dot Time Records, British songwriter vocalist and pianist Theo Jackson writes inventive, thoughtful songs.
“Before I even had a piano lesson I was trying to write songs. I would sit at our keyboard at home and poke at the keys; I would work out patterns and fit words and melodies”.
His forthcoming release is largely a collection of Jackson’s original tunes.From “Bella’s Coming Home” – the tale of a young girl returning home after having run away – to “Shoeless and the girl”, many of his thoughtful songs are based on his observations of people while living in London....

“One of the leading lights in the new wave of British jazz artists. Both creatively and technically Theo Jackson is ahead of the game.” Jazz FM Live
