Acoustic Artist Tim Jackson, born and raised on the Central Coast of
California opens new doors into the realm of the new millennium style of folk music. A sound from
the street, with feeling and depth, his music has enlightened the spirit of modern Americana.
Raised on the sounds of Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, The Beatles, and the Who, Tim has blended his favorite styles into a decidedly assertive brand of rock that evokes the finest musical emotions of the 60's while unmistakably charting the course the genre is pursuing into the 21st Century. Tim's style is undeniably timeless and genuine.
His raw emotional presence coupled with his boundless enthusiasm and energy of his acoustic solo performances have won him legions of fans who are the backbone of his now considerable following. On his ten critically acclaimed releases, you can find his own style of songwriting from Americana to rock and soul.
Tim has worked with such music industry veterans as Billy Burnette (Fleetwood Mac), Tom Peterson (Cheap Trick), Steve Puleot (Grammy award winning producer), and Joe Chiccarelli, whose production credits include David Bowie and John Lennon.
Tim has been voted "Best Male Vocalist" in the California New Times Reader's Poll. He has also received the Fine Arts, Music, and Entertainment's "Best Male Vocalist of the Year" award.
No stranger to the larger than life world of rock, Tim has performed under the scrutiny of audiences all over.
