Performers

Inspired by composers and songwriters from Duke Ellington and John Coltrane through to Billy Joel and Stevie Wonder, Theo Jackson’s songs can feature anything from a pathological womaniser to a tortoise.

Together with award-winning saxophonist Nathaniel Facey, he has made sold-out appearances at Oxford Jazz Festival and Cheltenham Jazz Festival and made his first 10-date UK tour in 2013.

He has recently signed a one-off publishing deal with Concord Music Group for his original lyrics to be set to Scott Lafaro’s ‘Gloria’s Step’.

Theo is equally at home delivering the emotional lines of a ballad as he is improvising vocals to complement the melodic lines of his instrumentalists. An engaging and charismatic live artist, Theo appears regularly in London at the 606 Jazz Club.

‘ One of the most interesting jazz vocalists and composers to emerge on the British scene in recent years, Jackson can flit between ballads and rapid-fire scatting in the blink of an eye.’ (The Telegraph)

‘One of Britain’s finest jazz musicians and singers.’ (Michael Wilson, Jazz FM)
