The road Hannah Jackson carved out for herself hasn’t always been an easy one. You could say she choose the road less traveled, as far as jumping into a musical career. “Being creative and navigating how to actually play that out is not easy in this day and age, although it is getting easier for women,” shared Jackson. “It’s definitely been a part of my struggle, just pushing through the barriers of ‘Well, you’re a mom so I guess you can’t seek your following.’” It was a hard reality she came to face during her time on “The X Factor,” and a realization from all parties that it would not be a life Jackson could wholeheartedly jump into at that moment.

But no experience is without its rewards, and Jackson’s career has soared since her time on “The X Factor,” garnering much attention among the music world with her engaging vocals. Often compared to the likes of Dolly Parton and Zooey Deschanel mixed in with a little Carrie Underwood, Jackson creates a powerful combination of sounds in a unique musical repertoire.

Hannah Jackson began songwriting in her mid-20s. You could say she has a gift for capturing moments of impact and translating her own experiences as well as those of others she collaborates with to create lyrics that are not only heartfelt but bring you into the journey of the song. It feels as if you were living that moment in time along with her. Her song “Naïve” from her album of the same title is a prime example of the complete package of Jackson’s talent from the touching lyrics to her angelic voice down to the artistry of her guitar playing.
