Bio

Born in Alsace, at the foothills of the Vosges mountains. He left home in 1980 to begin his musical career, touring all over Europe as a bassist/guitarist, and later as an acclaimed composer and producer. While doing studio sessions, live TV shows, and composing soundtracks, Jackson gained solid experience in the music industry.

Owner of the Star Track Studio he's actually producing Soundtracks for French TV reports and Raphaëlle Dess "The one" for the Alsacian label Arteis/Koonda Music. He released recently the albums "The party ain't over yet" for Texan singer & fiddler John Permenter.

His biggest musical revelation came during a long trip through Australia. While staying at Malakoff Station near Cloncurry he heard for the first time Australian Country Music. It was the beginning of a great adventure. Back home, deeply inspired by photos of the outback, he wrote his first songs “The Lonely Bushman”, “This is Love”, and then his first album “The Game”, recorded in 1997 by Skip Mitchell at The Reflections Studio in Nashville, TN. Over the years Jackson Mackay recorded 4 albums and has earned the reputation as a honest and sensible performer. He has never forgotten what the bush brought to him: a sound, a spirit, and the inspiration of honest people living on our beautiful planet.

Jackson is working on a future album "West" including song and poetry about bush and deserts. He'll be on the road thru Arizona, Utah, Colorado and New Mexico to pick up the inspiration of the fantastic west.

Highlights :
2003 & 2004 he got 3 nominations at the French FACM Country Music Awards
2004 & 2005 he won the FACM Awards for best singer and live performance
