Monday, July 1st: JADE JACKSON

Country singer/songwriter Jade Jackson began composing songs at a young age. her parents were keen music fans, and Jackson grew up on a diverse diet of Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, the Cure, and the Smiths. In between waitressing at her family’s restaurant, the young Jackson began to write songs at the age of 13, and played her first live show the following year. By the time she left high school she had a collection of over 300 original compositions.

After high school she was accepted in the music program at the prestigious Cal Arts College, just outside of Los Angeles. Jackson struggled with painkiller addiction after a back injury and also dealt with an eating disorder but continued to write songs to heal through those challenges.

Signed to ANTI, she released her debut album, “Gilded" in 2017 which was produced by Mike Ness of Social Distortion.

She was featured in Rolling Stone Magazine's  “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know,” and a national tour soon followed.

Her second slbum "Wilderness" also produced by Ness, was released this week and was added to WYCE’s Music Library.
