About Me

I'm Jackson. I am a singer, songwriter and producer from Canada.I specialize in a Rock & Roll sound, but also score incidental soundtracks now and again for film and video games.

Instruments I play

I play Guitar, bass, keyboards, drums and my voice.

Software I Use

Cubase 6

Hardware I Use

I use my guitars, a Gretsch, Epiphone and Strat in all of my songs. For vocals I use a Trion 6000 Multipattern condenser fed into a vintage style pre-amp. I use an acorn masterkey midi controller for keyboard parts, with some Native Instruments VSTS and some samples from HaLION Sonic SE.
