Kristine Jackson

Singer * Musician * Songwriter 





A traveling minstrel rooted in the blues, her writing and style have always been gritty and organic. She accompanies herself with a home-grown guitar style that sets up both space and groove underneath her unique vocals and range. 


Starting on the trumpet at age ten, leading her own band by twenty-four, then opening for music legends such as B.B. King, Buddy Miles, Jimmy Webb, and Mavis Staples, KJ now performs her own music from Cleveland to Key West and everywhere in between.
