GUITARIST | BASSIST | PRODUCER
Baltimore, Maryland native Kevin Jackson has been taking the Smooth Jazz industry by storm since 2012, then appearing with a few recognizable artists such as Sheila E, Wyclef, and Maysa.
Jackson's mix of original compositions and acoustic renditions take his listeners on a soulful and rhythmic journey. Jackson produces projects that offer something for every person’s taste, whether it is Rock, Contemporary Christian, Jazz, Soulful R&B and more.
Jackson is often thought of as a “quiet giant” due to his humble and quiet nature but, once on stage, it’s easy to see this is where he is most comfortable, and where he comes to life through his music. His live productions set him apart from the rest. In more recent years, Jackson has had the opportunity to open for and perform with smooth jazz artists like Marcus Johnson, Jeanette Harris and Jackiem Joyner, to name a few.
In 2012, Jackson embarked on a career to record his first album, Stories In Color, which was met with critical acclaim. His sophomore offering, The Mirrored Truth garnished the single “Favorite Way”, which was considered for a Grammy for song of the year. His song “We Got Us” from his third album Full Circle was also considered for a Grammy in 2018. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Jackson continued his work and love for music by performing private shows for family, friends, and fans alike. He successfully recorded his fourth smooth jazz debut album entitled Elevation in August 2021. Two singles, “Elevation", featuring Judah Sealy, and “Druid Hill Park” are currently streaming on all platforms and in rotation on Watercolors, Sirius XM Radio. His current single, “KJ’s Vybe” was released in April 2023 ahead of his soon to be released CD in 2024. “KJ’s Vybe” may also be heard on Watercolors and all streaming platforms.
