ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In 1995, Jackson released his debut CD, Via Satellite, his first step into the Vancouver music scene. He later formed a band called the Bedouins, which eventually changed its name to MK Ultra and recorded the album Apple.

With a hard-driving sound similar to The Cult and early U2, Apple spent five weeks on top of the HMV Independent charts. The disc landed the band 2 Music West headline shows as well as an opening slot for Nickelback and local radio play on 99.3 The Fox. It also drew interest from major record labels.

Unhappy with the direction that the band's next CD was taking during writing sessions, believing the songs sounded too much like the previous recording, Jackson sent Wong an acoustic demo of What Are We Waiting For. Jackson describes the song as the modern-day version of Gather Ye Rosebuds While Ye May by Romantic poet Robert Herrick. Wong listened to the track and phoned Scott the next day, saying that he couldn't get it out of his head and that they should record it.

Jackson submitted 20 other songs. Wong picked eight for My World, which features an all-star lineup of Canadian rock musicians.

The CD's tone at times is somber and thoughtful, with tracks like Beautiful, What Are We Waiting For, and Black and White. At the same time, the songs My World, and Right
or Wrong balance the album with an uplifting mood.

Jackson says the album is about moving forward in a difficult time, as war wages and uncertainty consumes the world, and as his family still tries to come to terms with his beloved brother in-law's drowning during a family reunion at Lake Chelan a week before Sept. 11 , 2001.
