Jackson Dean Ain't No Saint

This past winter Jackson holed up with producer Sean Mercer over at J. Robbin’s Magpie Cage Recording Studio and did additional recording at Moosehouse Recording and The Music Space to record their latest record, Ain’t No Saint. It was a perfect balance with Sean and Jackson producing a record full of heartfelt songs with impeccable production, respectively. They both have poured their hearts and souls in to this record, and it shows. There is so much detail and nuance in this record. Aside from all the details, the music is glorious and emotive.

Keep an eye out on this guy – with sold out shows at Ram’s Head, he’s already climbing the iTunes Country Charts debuting at #53 and the following day up to #32!

At just 18 years old, singer/songwriter/musician, Jackson Dean pours his emotions into his writing and performing. Born and raised in Odenton, Maryland, he started performing at local establishments when he was barely 14. Very quickly, this hometown boy has a loyal following who couldn’t wait to see what he would do next.

His musical style is a fusion of Amerciana, Old Country with a bit of Blues. The lyrics coming out of this young, old soul are incredible. This highschool senior with the voice of a grown man has brought a tear to many an eye with “Brother Come Home” off his first album, The Flood Zone. Not to mention “Letters Home” and “Man Upstairs” from his second album Who We Are​.

In 2017, Jackson started a serious journey of writing and recording his music including several trips back and forth to Nashville to record originals. Jackson Dean headed back to Nashville in March to play at Florida Georgia Line’s new bar and will continue to play at local venues while setting up a tour for next summer.
