It was only a year and a half ago when Word Records introduced the world to Arkansas rock band Jackson Waters with their debut effort, Come Undone. The record offered CCM-friendly rock n roll with a kiss of southern flavor, introducing us to memorable songs like "Center Of Attention," "Jamie's Song," and the album's title cut. Looking back, it's no surprise the band and Word decided to go their separate ways as their newer material is a significant enough shift in direction to not fit into your typical Christian radio formatting. In fact, their new independently released EP, Supply, seems to incorporate more of the band's roots as it bears a more distinct southern influence than before.

Solid EP by Great Band Jackson Waters| Posted October 23, 2008 Jackson Waters, the alternative rock band from Arkansas hooked me big-time last year with Come Undone and I've been constantly enjoying that album from Word Records as it was one of my favorite albums of 2007. There is no better comparison than Maroon 5 as lead singer David Leonard's voice could pass for Adam Levine, but what I like even more is how Jackson Waters has a sound that is like a fusion of Maroon 5, Coldplay and NEEDTOBREATHE, all favorite bands of mine.
Supply is a new 5 song EP from one of my favorite new bands of the decade. It is an independent release and if you liked Come Undone, you should also enjoy Supply. There is no ballad like Center of Attention, but the stand-out songs to me are Stay, Complete and Stuck On A Feeling. The songs are rich in emotion and melody and I can't wait for more by Jackson Waters. To me, this is 4 out of 5 stars.
