Jackson was born in San Antonio, Texas and attended MacArthur H.S. Jackson was known for raising a little hell in school, but it was usually all in good fun. These days he's known for putting on one of the most energetic live performances for a young artist and is still guilty of raising a little hell. Jackson's musical journey began on a drum stool playing in a punk rock band. He continued to persue percussion and began teaching himself guitar in junior high. By high school he had moved from behind the drums to the front of the stage, playing and singing while working on his songwriting ability. After high school, Jackson moved to New York City to attend College, but as most first year students do, he spent more time wandering the streets of the city than in the classroom.He made the most of the city. He spent many days playing on the corners for change and hearing stories from the less fortunate residents. Jackson drew much inspiration from his experiences. The song, Ode to Emily(NY state) tells a story of love left behind,and the album's final track, Standing in the Sun, deals with reflecting on chances taken. This song was inspired by a conversation with a homeless man on a summer day in the east village. During this time, Jackson was honing his skill as a writer and a performer. Soon he decided to leave school and return to texas to persue a career playing music. With a set of songs from Texas to New York, and every place in between, he went into the studio to record his first album. With such notable players as Bobby Flores and Andrew Langham from Ray Price's band, and Billy Brent Malkus from Nathan Hamilton and No Deal, Jackson put together a record which is well worth the praise it has been recieving. But as any Jackson Parten fan will tell you, the real deal is to see him live. With his band of extremly talented musicians that can play honky-tonk with the best of them and just about any other style they choose, they are winning over followers and showing people that country can really rock. The show is simply about having a good time and being completly exhausted when it is over. Jackson is currently playing across Texas and is a must see for anyone who loves real songwriting and good Texas music.

This album is extremely impressive! I have heard Jackson's name around here and there, and picked up this CD the other day. It's awesome! A nice smooth blend with a VERY solid music backing, and some kick ass tunes. His songwriting takes a new outlook and is very refreshing. I don't think there is one cliche line or phrase on the whole album, it hasn't left my CD player since I bought it! I strongly recommend this disc!!

This shit is amazing. Jackson Parten is the best in Texas. If you haven't yet - you need to check him out. And I don't give a damn what anyone says - I know Sterling Finlay very well and I think somebody should lock him up and throw away the key. Ask him - he'll agree. He's a pyschopath!!

The way I see it there are only three things worth living for...Love, Money, and Music. Maybe not all in that order, but they all have their importance. So lets hypnotize 1) You can't buy love 2) More often times than not It takes money to make money 3)Well then you have Music. It's probably the single most exhilarating experience known to man...Well maybe it takes a backset to sex...But then that goes back to the whole love issue (Or does it?) Anyways... What I'm trying to say is, if music is important to you why don't you listen to something worth listening to. Let me steer you in the right direction…Take your money and go buy a Jackson Parten CD. You won’t be disappointed. He delivers the best damn music I’ve heard yet.

Saw this band open for Jack Ingram at Floore's Country Store last week. Was VERY impressed! The band was great and the lead singer (jackson) was awesome! I'm checking to find out where they will be playing next in the Houston area. I'll be there!

"The Sum of All Parts" is one of the BEST CDs I've heard in a long time. There is something for everyone on this CD. My favorite is "The Song is Not the SAme". I love that!

WOW! That's all that needs to be said. What a record...what a band...and what incredible talent. I hear these guys all the time live and yet I still am not sick of hearing them play or listening to the cd. You just can't get enough of these guys and when you buy the record or hear 'em you'll understand why.
