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.

Theo Jackson: Shoeless And The Girl

Read "Shoeless And The Girl" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

The Art Of The Song

Read "The Art Of The Song" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Singing is possibly the most universal of the arts, certainly of the musical arts. The human voice is the most portable of instruments, always there, always available. It's also the most expressive of instruments: almost every instrument invented in history has at some time or other been used to mimic the voice; none have truly succeeded.

Theo Jackson: Jericho

Read "Jericho" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Singer, pianist and songwriter Theo Jackson lives in Oxford, of university fame, and his debut album Jericho is named after an area of the city rather than the ancient town that suffered so much from an excessively loud horn section.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
