Theo Jackson

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.
