Jackson Dunn is a product of sun, surf and summer - the guitar-slinging, one man roots dynamo from the Gold Coast thrives on it. He hides away to hibernate through Winter, using the solitary time to write, record and let his creativity flow. But as soon as he feels the warmth of the Spring sun on his bronzed, tattooed arms, he returns to play shows and release the product of his time away from the world. He is about to come out of hiding to release "Relax and Let it Roll", his most vibrant, thumping and emotionally mature set of songs to date.
Jackson has used the inspiration of the city, surf and new love to create a new set of songs. He is like a solar battery, building up his inspiration through the Summer months and playing his energetic and exciting roots music for Coastal music fans, bottling that lightning in Winter and then releasing it throughout Spring and Summer to soundtrack summer fun, love and excitement!
Jackson has an insatiable love for music. A lifelong passion, Jackson credits his Phillipino-born mother for his introduction to the music world. He is inspired by artists like Daniel Johns, Ash Grunwald, Dallas Frasca and Adalita. His live show combines lightning-speed strumming, beer bottle slide guitar, thumping foot-stomp and mesmerising drum loops with heartfelt lyrics, tender, emotional moments and guitar lines that take you on an emotional rollercoaster - it is not to be missed.
