ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Singer/songwriter Craig Jackson is considered part of a new breed of Nashville Americana artists, and with his fifth and latest album, Damn The Roses (Green Records), Jackson enlisted the help of some very talented musicians, songwriters and engineers. Recorded at Cabin in the Woods Studio in Fairview, Tennessee, Jackson’s smooth vocal delivery was married with solid arrangements and flowing melodies to create a warm feel, and the perfect vehicle to deliver his stories of heartbreak and longing.
Standout tracks on Damn The Roses include “Don’t Mean Nothin’” a catchy, upbeat song about loneliness that will stick in your head and have you happily singing the chorus over and over. “Every Time You Leave” is a Tom Petty style rocker featuring some stellar guitar work, and Jackson’s vocals are complemented nicely by Meghan Whalen. The simple two-part harmonies make for a very intimate listen, especially on the lush sounding “Cryin’ Game”. “1941” let’s you inside a family’s pain from the loss of a son in World War II, but the lyrical content is equally relevant today.
Damn The Roses is the follow-up to 2006’s Spanish Rain, also released on Green Records. Along with each of Jackson’s previous albums, including Midwest, Last House on the Left, and Make It Right, his songs have seen plenty of nationwide radio airplay, prompting The Gavin Report to name Craig Jackson as one of its up and coming artists. His songs have been used in films such as “Murder Weapon” and others. Jackson, who has toured extensively, is planning to hit the road regionally this summer in support of Damn the Roses.

Craig Jackson's Best Work of Art to Date
I have been anxiousely awaiting the release of Craig Jackson's new cd Spanish Rain and it finally arrived, in record time (pardon the pun), may I add, thanks to cdbaby.com I was more than pleased. CJ decided this time to go a different direction with his music and explore country/folk/rock. He used on his record only what I can describe as an eclectic mixture of instruments...some that I have never heard of before, like "dobro" and "lap steel". And I never knew that a harmonica is also referred to as a "harp". It was fun learning about these new instruments that I am not used to and finding them on the different tracks. His brother, Scott Jackson, plays the "harps" on the track "One Step Closer", which CJ wrote and produced himself. This song made my feet beg for cowboy boots and my toes just would not stay still!!! It is just one fun song!!
He and band member, Lori Lynner join voices and pen on the track "Trouble". Their voices blend effortlessly and harmonize beautifully. That is one song that just flows in flawless motion. I am a lover of acoustic music, especially guitar, so there is a treat on the last track called "Anything" written once again by CJ. This is a song about craving for love from the very heart. CJ plays the guitar so beautifully and effortlessly and sings from his soul. None of his songs on his cd are a disappointment. CJ still captures something that I call his "classic California roots/rock sound. I think he will always have it. He has his own unique sound and that is what it is. He put a lot of work and heart into this record and the proof is in the listening. He always has good stories to tell in his songs. I just love to sit and listen and get caught up in them sometimes on a lazy Saturday. I urge anyone to try out CJ's record and take it for a good and fun spin and you won't be disappointed. Dust off your cowboy boots and bring the children and the family pets to kick up your heels. and then remember stories of lost loves and some heartaches. It is all here for you to experience on Spanish Rain by none other than Craig Jackson from good ol' Nashville, Tennessee, Thanks, CJ for the wonderful music!!!
