Jericho is a welcome creation—the work of a young male vocalist who is steering a route that avoids the well-trodden paths of The Great American Songbook and heads towards a potentially fascinating musical destination. - All About Jazz


Soulful, earthy vocal-led jazz from this impressive young singer with a powerful yet subtle voice, Jackson also has a knack of penning Stevie Wonder-esque originals that avoid the usual crooner cliches . . Jackson's one to watch out for. - Time Out London


One of the most interesting jazz vocalists and composers to emerge on the British scene in recent years, Jackson can flit between ballads and rapid-fire scatting in the blink of eye.

Bio

Three years ago Theo was working shifts at a pub in Oxford, UK to keep his dream of being a professional jazz pianist and singer alive. After an invitation to play London's prestigious 606 Jazz Club, Theo has gone from strength to strength. He has quickly established himself as 'one of Britain's finest jazz musicians and singers'. He released his first album, Jericho, at the noteworthy Pizza Express Jazz Club to a sold-out crowd. He toured New Zealand giving solo performances and educational workshops. He has played many of the UK's most famous venues including the Royal Albert Hall's Late Night Jazz Series. He has appeared at some of the UK's biggest festivals including Cheltenham Jazz Festival and will be making two appearances at the largest jazz festival in Europe - London Jazz Festival 2013.

Aside from his notable vocal and piano skills, Theo has won plaudits for his thoughtful and engaging songwriting, as well as his charismatic and occasionally eccentric stage presence. Equally comfortable whether deliberating over the lines of a delicate ballad or improvising fluent bop solos, Theo's performance style is very much his own.
