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.

My wife and I are "snowbirds" as you texans like to call us. spend 4 months out of the year in the beautiful texas hill country, instead of our home in minnesota. the last couple of years, we have grown to enjoy the "live" music performances that seem to be everywhere! last night, we heard a band called jackson parton band at a large dance hall tucked off I-10. what a surprise to find this place. we were actually going to a restuarant we'd heard about, and sitting right next door was this dancehall! well, we had to check it out. what a place! and what a band. the band had already started when we arrived and were souding good. the lead singer was jackson parton. he was so suberb. he is a young man, but so talented. the show was all original material. of course, we purchaed the cd! the wife and i really think this guy's got "it". you folks that live down here, are so lucky! we don't get shows like these in our part of the country.

I just travelled in Texas for 3 weeks and saw a number of live performances, including Jackson Parten. Bought the CD and it is now one of my favorites that I keep playing to remember the trip. Entire CD is good, several songs excellent, including Hit and Miss, Standing in the Sun, and Kerosene.

I just discovered Jackson Parten thru a friend. How come this guy isn't getting more attention? His song writing is above and beyond most of the writing out there today. I have not seen him in concert, but plan to the first chance I get. His debut CD is EXCELLENT! Is another one on the horizon? If you haven't heard this guy, check him out. I know I plan too.

Jackson Parten's CD is one of the freshest new sounds from Texas. Have not had the pleasure of seeing him live, but plan to in very near future. His lyrics and songwriting abilities are heads above most of the acts out there right now. The CD is in my player and I can't get enough! Rock on!

I LOVE Jackson Parten! Can't wait for a new CD to come out. South of Omaha is a great song. Keep writing! I see the band whenever I can. You should too.

Happened to catch a "live" performance by Jackson Parten and some of his band members on KFAN over the weekend. They kept saying he was playing that night somewhere in Fredericksburg--but never said where! It was great! Have ordered a CD and can't wait to see him "live". Jackson, come back to the hill country!!!

At least "theone" has taken the time and energy to notice Jackson Parten. I've seen Jackson's show several times, and yes there is a song about pot, but plaeese! His songs and "catchy lyrics" are way deeper than the watered down songs from too many artists to name. Publicity, good or bad--people are taking notice!
