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.
