"Hey bud, I wanted to say how blown away I was with your single and your video. Great job!! Great production on your record. Everything was perfect. And your vocal was terrific. Good job, my friend. It’s sonically perfect.

“To say Jackson is extremely talented would not only to be stating the obvious but also may be an understatement! The other thing I was struck by soon after meeting him is that he truly does seem to possess wisdom far beyond his young age. He has a beautiful sensitivity to others' feelings and can really lead a group well. He is an absolute joy to work with!”
--Tris Imboden - Rock & Roll Hall of Fame drummer w/ Chicago for 30 years and with Kenny Loggins, and many other world-renowned studio and touring musicians.
“Jackson was a real surprise and a pleasure. He started with a blues song. Understanding and feeling the blues is what the blues really is all about. Jackson certainly understands it and certainly feels it, and that comes across in his performance.”
--Barry De Vorzon, six-time Emmy winner, writer or producer of 20 hit records.
“I don’t know if it’s the health challenges you’ve been so open about, but you are one old soul.”
