Wexford, County Wexford
JaXson is the brainchild of Wexford singer-songwriter Luke Jackson.
Luke has been slowly climbing the ladder ever since he began playing under the moniker, JaXson, in January 2017
His early highlights include playing to a packed tent at Vantastival 2018, supporting Little Hours in Waterford playing Electric Picnic 2018.
Then, JaXson released his debut single We Were Born on 14th September, 3 days after a live version aired on Today FM's Lost In Music. The track has been supported by Irish radio ever since and has received rave reviews from a number of blogs & magazines and was included on Spotify's 'A Breath of Fresh Éire' playlist as well as being pushed heavily on Discover Weekly & Release Radar.
In January 2019, JaXson was chosen as one of Golden Plec's 'Plec Picks' Ones To Watch for 2019.
He also announced support slots for Paddy Casey, Aslan, Alternative Liverpool band, SPINN as well as a show with SOMA Indie Clubnight in March 2019.
JaXson released his sophomore single '5am (Look What You've Done) on April 5th 2019, and on the same day supported Adam French on his Dublin leg of his tour.
Summer 2019 saw him feature heavily on festival lineups all over Ireland. He made appearances at Indiependence, Kaleidoscope, Vantastival and many more.
In November 2019, JaXson made the biggest move of his career so far when he sold out his debut headline show with MCD in Whelans. The Irish Times even tipped it as one of the gigs of the week!
This came after supporting Hudson Taylor on two nights of their Irish tour.
2020 will see him release more music as he continues to climb the ladder.
