London via Dublin, County Dublin
Swimmers Jackson is a new indie-pop solo venture in London.
Dublin native Niall .Jackson has released his first two solo single ‘Summer’s Here’ and 'Life's Short (Embrace It)' in quick succession this summer to wonderful praise. Receiving radio play on RTE, BBC, TodayFM, Newstalk, 8radio, Wandsworth Radio and being awarded track of the day on both JOE.ie and BBC's 'Across the Line', both songs are from an as yet untitled E.P. , produced by Darragh Nolan ( Ailbhe Reddy, Conor Walsh, Winter Aid) at his Asta Kalapa Studios, Co. Wexford in March 2017.
Formerly a 3 piece, Jackson released 2 EPs under the name ‘Swimmers’, (Swimmer’s Year 2013, This Burning Circus 2015) before moving to London in late 2015. With no band-mates he was left stripping Swimmer’s songs back into their original solo acoustic versions.
After a productive year of new songwriting in 2016, he leapt back onto the gig circuit in 2017 with the help of a couple of friends in London’s alternative-folkie circles and hasn’t looked back since. This new found confidence led to the recent recording of nine new songs in March of this year.
Swimmers Jackson is Niall Jackson - Vocals/ Guitars,
All songs written and composed by Niall Jackson who also plays bass for Dublin Indie quartet Bouts.

What they say:
"Very lovely new wares from @NiallCJackson on @todayfm now providing an ironic but gorgeous soundtrack to the rain here!" - Ed Smith - Today FM 04/06/2017
"A laid back, lazy afternoon tune, ‘Summer’s Here’ reminds us a little of Kurt Vile mixed in with Kings of Convenience. Swimmers Jackson showcases some great guitar skills towards the end but the vocals are the highpoint of this song, layering together in a blissful and hazy way. Who doesn’t enjoy those long and bright summer days?” - BBC Across the Line. 16/06/2017
'Swimmers Jackson's 'Life's Short (Embrace It)' song title serves as a mission statement for the song itself, which barely lasts over 90 seconds, so the Bouts member doesn't muck about in providing a succinct guitar pop track that you'll want to repeat because of it's length and catchy nature - Nialler 9 - The Irish Times - 10/08/2017
"Swimmers’ sunkissed indie-pop brought me straight back to the 1990s - Aoife Barry - The Irish Times. 25/01/2013
