An accomplished producer and songwriter (Toni Braxton, Cheryl Cole (X-factor, UK), Marcus Canty (X-Factor US/Epic Records) etc.) with singles currently climbing Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop charts at a rapid pace ("Leggo" by Motown Recording artist B. Smyth) recording artist and new kid on the block Chris Jackson has already laid the foundation for what many believe will be one of the most unprecedented careers in Gospel Music today!
Born and raised in White Plains, New York, Jackson grew up in a strict Jamaican household where the importance of hard work and the pursuit of an education were instilled in him at a young age. While he worked hard in school, his thoughts often turned to writing songs that would touch the world. Composing and performing his first song at the age of 7, it was clear to family and friends that he was destined for musical success. After sharpening his abilities by performing at local showcases in the NYC area, Jackson attempted to fulfill a life long dream of both performing and winning over the crowd at the world famous "Amateur Night At the Apollo" where he won an astounding 2 times in a row!
After being accepted into college, Jackson enrolled in pursuit of a degree in Business. A student by day and singer by night, his passion for music overtook his desire for education. In his senior year he made the difficult decision to withdraw from the institution with a goal of landing his first placement with a national recording artist within a year's time. Six months later he did just that, placing a song with 6-time Grammy Award Winning artist Toni Braxton, writing the title track for her 2010 release entitled Pulse. The following year he experienced his first taste of international success with his placement "Promise This" on UK Pop sensation Cheryl Cole's sophomore project Messy Little Raindrops. The CD & Single sat atop the charts at the #1 spot and were both certified platinum in the UK as well as many other countries, confirming Jackson's international acclaim.
Jackson has had the pleasure of writing for and working with some of today's biggest artists. With several confirmed placements under his belt and a wealth of industry knowledge and experience, Jackson now feels it's time to step out into the world as a performer in the world of Gospel music. Never being one to be ashamed of his faith, Jackson boldly proclaimed the message of Christ and his delivering power in his single "REARVIEW MIRROR" which was released as a free download on the internet in January of 2012. The single was well received and created a buzz within the gospel music community prompting Jackson to move forward in working towards releasing a series of mixtapes before his debut album, beginning with Part 1 of the series, "NO PRESSURE", to be released April 23, 2013. Along with "Rearview Mirror", NO PRESSURE will be preceded by the singles "LAY IT ON ME" and "INCREDIBLE (ft. D-Tropp)".
An accomplished singer/songwriter and producer with international acclaim, Chris Jackson desires nothing more than to use his accomplishments to glorify God, telling the world about a soon coming King in a relevant, innovative and BIG way!
