"A catchy and captivating song-crafter, a true
storyteller.” —WBEZ, Chicago
Award winning Singer, songwriter,
and multi-instrumentalist Robin Jackson, known for his wild, theatrical
contributions to bands like Vagabond Opera and the March Fourth Marching Band,
has brought a strong presence to the world of indie folk. Mr
Jackson, joined by his all-star six piece ensemble of NW musicians The
Caravan, draws upon the moody spirit of his rain-soaked, Portland, Or.
home to create an eclectic brew of dreamy folk-pop, cinematic indie rock and
above all, enigmatic storytelling.
With a degree in ethnomusicology
and an unflagging musical curiosity, Jackson has lived and busked around the
world, from an intentional beach community in New Zealand to the streets of
Europe. He is a master of a myriad of instruments, from saxophone to mbira and
has also performed or recorded with notable acts such as Gregory Allen Isakov,
Emancipator, Devotchka, and Amanda Palmer. An impresario of
community and collaboration, Jackson has built on his colorful, bohemian
upbringing and dedicated himself to creating and supporting music around
Portland, Or where he lives on an urban farm with his cat and a
circus. His newest album, Dark Stars, was recorded in the legendary Type
Foundry Studios and is available everywhere.
