“Music is for the soul. Music heals, helps, protects, inspires, grows, liberates, and connects us all in a way that feels cosmic and magical.”— Hannah Jackson

No better quote could describe the essence of Hannah Jackson’s music as this soulful singer/songwriter out of Lubbock, Texas, mesmerizes you with her heartfelt lyrics to music that opens the door and welcomes you along her journey. This West Texas gal is certainly a tribute to our generation, having started her career at the tender age of two, singing with her family as they traveled to different churches and conventions performing for crowds of up to 15,000. All the while, she was keeping up with her school work as she waited for her cue to take the stage.

No stranger to the limelight, Hannah Jackson garnered not only a spot on the first season of Simon Cowell’s “The X Factor USA” and made the top 12 in her category, but she won over the hearts of the judges. Especially Cowell, who gave a spot-on compliment of Jackson’s voice stating, “I love your voice. You are extremely current. There are girls all over the internet trying to sound like you. You are an example of goodness. I love you!”

A versatile artist who can remind you of home with tunes such as “Texas Gold,” then switch to an upbeat tune like “Hi-Lili, Hi-Lo” from her album titled “One” with Ray Espinoza. It can make you feel like you stepped right into a Hallmark movie. By the way, Jackson’s arrangement of “Jingle Bells” from her album “Hot Chocolate for Two” with Amy Faris graced a scene in the Hallmark movie “Christmas Cookies.” Hannah Jackson is an artist who can perform in a melting pot of genres, yet bring it all together with a powerful voice showcasing the best of country music with a little bit of retro jazz thrown in the mix for a sound all her own.
