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.

It is hard to believe this is this young man's first time out of the barrell. You can hear a variety of styles in his song writing. Buy now. This young man will be around a long time and you will be able to say "I bought his first album before anybody knew who Jackson Parten was". A must here in a live venue.

Jackson is fantastic! It's hard to believe he's only 20. This is a must have - one of those you'll be happy you have in your collection when he makes it to the Americana big time.

Charlie, I don't know what your talking about he doesn't compare to Pat Green because he's not a overgrown frat daddy, that sings just about drinking beer. Puts on one hell of a concert, great songwriting ability mixed with great stage presence. Anybody that has a chance to see him do it. Thanks and GigEm.
