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.

Wow. I'm blown away by this young artist's musical talent and song writing ability. I've always been a big fan of this style of music, but I must admit, he's climbed all the way to the top of the charts in my book! Excellent CD, and even better in concert!

Jackson Parten is a "Comer", with a style somewhere between "Texas Roots", and flat-out Honky-Tonk, both in performance and writing.

I first stumbled across Jackson Parten at River Road Ice House in New Braunfels. His music is unique and you can clearly see where he draws his musical inspiration. Some tunes are free spirited while others are more serious, and you will notice his style is drawn from all types of music from Jazz to Rock. Over all I think Jackson is heading in the right direction and with time his music will surpass the likes of any Texas musician. It is definitely refreshing to hear music that has not been influenced by the record giants. With his diverse sound the album should not be labeled as any type of music other that GREAT. I would give his music a 5at a live performance, but do to the limitations of the studio the same songs die down to a 4. Overall I see this as a wonderful album with songs for everyone, and It will be fun to watch a good young artist become great.
