As a kid growing up in Brooklyn, NY, Seth Hilary Jackson’s first musical love was The Beatles. Other favorites included The Dave Clark Five, The Kinks, Herman's Hermits, The Supremes, and The Monkees. Later on, he started to love bands like The Doors, Cream, and Jethro Tull. One day, as a teenager, he walked into a Grateful Dead concert and was hooked. His love of The Dead eventually led him into country music. During his college days at Brown University, he bought a guitar and started learning chords. It wasn't until he was an MBA student at the Wharton School when he wrote his first song, "The Job Search Blues” satirizing his experience with the frenzy of the MBA employment scramble. The very next song he wrote, "The Atomic Bop", received airplay in the Boston area and prompted The Beat Magazine to write, "Be on the Seth Jackson alert." Dozens of Seth’s pop and country songs have been placed with recording artists and in film and TV. Several made the Top 10 on the European Country Music Association airplay charts, hitting #1 with “Wait’ll I Get My Hands On You” and #2 with “Oh, My Badness”. The latter was also recorded by the Austrian band Rhythm 4 Boots on their album Country Inside, which was named Country Album of the Year in their home country. Seth’s song, "X-Ray", recorded by German pop band Hella Donna, made it to #1 in the world on the MusicWorx download chart and #20 on the world deejay chart. Seth received front-page news coverage and a Presidential invitation to the White House for his song, 'Pfc. Ross A. McGinnis", honoring a war hero who sacrificed his life to save his friends. Private McGinnis was posthumously awarded a Medal of Honor, and the song was performed at the US Army reception following the Medal of Honor ceremony. This remains one of Seth’s proudest moments. In 2017, after many years of writing for others, Seth went into the studio to record his debut album as an independent artist. It was liberating to be able to choose the songs he loves without having to go through music industry middlemen and gatekeepers. This gave him the freedom to choose an eclectic mix of material covering a long period of time, including songs written decades ago to ones written just days prior to going into the studio. The album, “This One’s For You”, has received stellar reviews.
