Jackson D separates himself from the pack in much the same way that David Bowie and Tom Waits did. He uses his unique voice, which is a sculpted baritone, to draw listeners in to hear what it is he is singing about.
With a keen interest in the visual side of the music for my single & Album,
I thought it to be important to use a good local photographer, Viceversa Robbi was my choice.
The Black Ribbon single was released only on vinyl during summer 2016.
An exclusive B-side track 'Am I Guilty?' appeared on this limited Edition 45rpm. It's my pride and joy, I am crazy about Vinyl records.
After many requests, in 2017 my debut album 'Face' was finally released. Recording took place for over a year at the Hairy Monster Studios from January 2016. It is a very personal album with emphasis that the sound quality should resemble that of a vinyl record or at least
it was important not to over produce the sound with loudness etc.
Jackson D is taking the gloss and sheen of so much of the coolness of pop culture. You soon realize you are in the hands of a true talent, a singer and songwriter who is a master of his craft.

In early 2016 a photo session was set up. The astonishing model Neave Hodgson-Ali was ideal for the mood I wanted to adopt...Dark. The photography was also used on my debut album Face.
With Zachary Theodorou on percussion, Adrian Jenkinson (from rock band Salem) on Bass and with a year of anticipation, the hard work finally produced my debut album.
