Collective Soul and Switchfoot with Jade Jackson.
It’s probably (well, definitely) somewhat of an understatement to say Collective Soul frontman and chief songwriter Ed Roland is unwaveringly driven in his desire to double down on doing more of what he does best — making music, sweet music, both in the studio and onstage.
In following his ever-tenacious muse, Roland is always looking to connect with his current Collective Soul bandmates any which way he can. Actually, the word current is a bit of a misnomer, since Roland truly believes the Collective Soul of the here and now is as permanently intertwined as any group of musicians he’s ever worked with over the course of his illustrious career. “It’s worth noting See What You Started by Continuing was really the demo for this band as it stands right now,” Roland points out, referring to the 2015 album that realigned the rock quintet’s creative compass. “I mean, this is the band for the rest of my life. This is it, man.”
You’ll get no arguments here. As 2022 unfurls, it’s clear heaven continues to shine its light down on Collective Soul, a formidable five-man band humming along in unison with many more good vibrations of their own to share with the masses far and wide. There’s a reason Collective Soul are made for me and you — so be sure to see and hear them for yourself first-hand, the next time they make their presence known in your neck of the woods. —Mike Mettler, official Soulographer
Jade Jackson has spent much of her time in the small California town of Santa Margarita, working in her folks' restaurant, jotting down verses and picking out chords during breaks. Growing up in a household without television or internet, the family record player was her main source of entertainment, revolving a range of artists from Johnny Cash and Hank Williams to The Smiths, the Cure and assorted punk outfits. At age four her parents discovered she was legally blind and relied heavily on sound, spurring an interest in music that led to teaching herself guitar and writing songs by age 13.
Produced by Social Distortion frontman, Mike Ness, Jackson's debut album, Gilded, introduced her preternatural writing and roots-rough sound in 2017. Following her sophomore album, Wilderness (also produced by Ness in 2019), Jackson reached out to fellow singer-songwriter Aubrey Sellers, and Breaking Point was born - a gritty, roots-inspired rock album with an indie-pop sensibility. On the horizon for Jackson is her third solo album, funded by the money she's saved over the years while living at home and working at her parents' restaurant. It is her most honest and boundary-pushing work yet - it's sound built on the heels of adversity and sheer perseverance.
