You will want to stop and take note of Kristine Jackson. With a voice grounded in earthy roots, rock and blues, accompanied by her own unique guitar style, she has been a fan favorite wherever she goes.
A full-time touring musician, she creates a deep connection with the audience by focusing on the intimate quality of her songs and performance. Since 2004 Jackson has performed her original material with a consistent gigging schedule that takes her all across the country. From house concerts to festivals Jackson is the original package… the guitar, the voice, the stories.
KJ says “As a kid I dealt with abuse and in many ways music saved and shaped my life. It allowed me to release anger and sadness as a child and now as an adult it allows me to connect and continue to grow and heal."
Kristine has shared the stage with some of the biggest names in music, such as B.B. King, Tab Benoit, Joe Bonamassa, Buddy Guy, Robert Lockwood Jr., Taj Mahal, and Mavis Staples, among many others. In 2019 she represented the Northeast Ohio Blues Alliance in Memphis, TN for the International Blues Competition where she placed in the Semifinals as a solo artist. Her self-produced tracks have found their way to BBKings Sirius XM radio show.
With awards for both musicianship and songwriting, her shows are constructed to both entertain and inspire and there is something for everyone.
