ABOUT THE ARTIST
Raised in rural Melissa, Texas, Jackson Scribner grew up obsessed with music from an early age. He learned guitar when he was only nine and spent countless hours playing alongside his Dad and brothers at family gatherings. Being that the virtuosic player is only twenty years old, that doesn’t feel all that long ago. Only in the last year and a half has Jackson put lyrics to his skillful instrumentals, making their timeless appeal all the more prodigious.
Leaning into this seemingly supernatural knack, Jackson’s band — a crew of musical veterans vastly more accomplished and nonetheless awestruck — recorded his debut album at Consolvo Studio in Oak Cliff, Texas. Made up of Jeff Ryan (drums for St. Vincent, The War on Drugs, Daniel Johnston), John Dufilho (bass for The Apples in Stereo, The Deathray Davies), and engineered by Jerome Brock (Cryptolog), the seasoned group made a deliberate decision to let Jackson’s songs radiate in their natural state. Mixed with care by Grammy-winning Stuart Sikes (Loretta Lynn, Cat Power, Phosphorescent, The Walkmen), the collection does just that.
Jackson’s precocity — melodic and poetic — pierces sparse folk-rock arrangements, and in turn, a listener’s heart. With emotional precision, he roars and rattles out familiar tales of life so beautifully unspecial: Me and you left when you were sixteen / Hair so wild when you look at me / Take your wheels across the county line / Thousand miles away to that downtown diner / Watch you rise…
“Authentic, raw, honest, pure… Scribner is already an A list talent” – American Songwriter
“Scribner’s songwriting feels honest and true, to himself and where he comes from, telling stories about coming of age, with all the sweet rebellions and naïve revelations that go along with it.” – No Depression
