Wexford, County Wexford
JaXson is the brainchild of alternative singer/songwriter Luke Jackson, a moniker that the 24-year-old Wexford native has been playing under since January 2017.
Having gained placements on Spotify playlists New Music Friday UK and A Breath of Fresh Éire with previous releases, JaXson was named as One To Watch in 2019 by GoldenPlec in their Plec Picks series, while Today FM's Fergal D'Arcy recently labelled JaXson the "future of Irish music.”
JaXson sold out his debut headline show in Whelan’s, Dublin in November 2019 following a successful run of summer festivals including Indiependence, Kaleidoscope and Vantastival. He played support for Hudson Taylor on multiple dates of their Irish Tour in October 2019, as well as previously supporting Little Hours, SPINN and Adam French among others.
JaXson will demonstrate what is expected to be his finest piece of work to date when he releases his heart-wrenching single 'moving on' on July 10th. He will continue to release music into the final quarter of 2020 and will keep building his reputation as he moves forcefully into 2021.
The singer-songwriter will look to sell out his second headline show with MCD Productions when he plays The Sound House, Dublin on Febuary 5th 2021.
