Genre: Alternative/Alt. Rock, Singer-Songwriter, Indie
Penrith based singer-songwriter Kristian Jackson has a sound that is difficult to pigeonhole. Meeting somewhere in between classic rock and modern pop, with hints of jazzy undertones, Jackson draws inspiration from a diverse musical background. Kristian has gained the reputation of being a highly talented and dynamic performer, regardless of whether playing solo or with his full, 11-piece, band. What sets Kristian apart from the crowd is his earnest vocals and honest lyrics set against thoughtful and well structured compositions. He has managed to craft some wonderful pop songs without ever relying on clichés to give his songs momentum.
Kristian makes his musical intentions clear, “There’s no reason why popular music can’t be both interesting and accessible. I'm trying to make music with enough depth to sustain the interest of the most discerning listener while simultaneously capturing the heart of a mass audience.”
A multi instrumentalist, Kristian recorded vocals, guitars, piano, saxophone and several more instruments on his debut release 'Blood Eyes Sunrise' which he co-produced with Sean Carey (Thirsty Merc, Trackdown Studios). The album is available on iTunes, Amazon and other major digi-retailers. CDs also available at live shows and his website - kristianjackson.com
