Album Notes
“…From the first notes I heard him play, maybe a year or two ago, yeah, Jackson, I hope you don’t take this the wrong way, but you’re a freak of nature! And I say that with all due respect. But it’s true man, I just can’t wait to hear what this guy keeps coming up with.” —Jason Scheff, bass player/frontman for the legendary band, Chicago.

“In all my years as a player and teacher, I’ve never personally known anyone so accomplished at his age as 14-year-old guitarist, Jackson Thatcher,” says Mike Bauer, solo artist who has also played with Pam Tillis, Little Big Town, Bo Diddley and others. “His debut CD, The Path, is a beautifully composed and performed project. The Path showcases his acoustic guitar style which has a wonderful blend of both technical prowess and heart with a writing style that’s both groovy and optimistic.”

The 14-year-old guitarist, Jackson Thatcher, has been featured as a solo artist with the Cool Springs Youth Orchestra, on stage at B.B. Kings in Memphis, and several venues around the greater Nashville area including Tin Roof Nashville, Puckett's Nashville, The Factory at Franklin, The Red House, Mellow Mushroom, Franklin Mercantile, and Trevecca Nazarene University.

Jackson plays electric guitar for Cumberland Blue, winner of the Nashville Blues Society competition. Cumberland Blue represented Nashville at the International Blues Challenge for a showcase on Beale Street in Memphis. Cumberland Blue has played at 3rd & Lindsey, Mercy Lounge on the Billy Block Show, Hard Rock Cafe Nashville and other venues. Beside his solo and band gigs, Jackson is also an Assistant Teacher at Nolensville Guitar Academy, where he’s been studying guitar since he was eight years old.

Thatcher’s acoustic guitar influences are Andy McKee, Sungha Jung, Tommy Emmanuel and his mentor Pete Huttlinger. On acoustic guitar, Thatcher incorporates the fingerpicking style of Huttlinger with the percussive style of McKee. His electric guitar influences are Pat Metheny, Joe Satriani and his mentor Mike Bauer.

In early January 2012, Jackson’s Dad said, “Hey, we need to sit down and set some goals for you for this year.” Jackson replied, “I’ve already set my goals. I want to record an acoustic album this year.” The result was successful Kickstarter crowd-funding in October 2012 for The Path and an album release party in Downtown Nashville on February 19, 2013.

"Thank you to God, family, friends, and Kickstarter backers. Special thanks to Mike Bauer, Pete Huttlinger, Don DeMumbrum, Mom and Dad."
