JPR Live Session: Alex Jackson

Jul 29, 2016

Alex Jackson was born and raised in Melbourne, Australia, started playing the guitar at age 7, and spent most of the time locked in her bedroom jumping around with a guitar practicing to AC/DC records. Alex had her first live show at age 11 at The Cherry Bar - a pub on the aptly named AC/DC Lane (which is a real street in Melbourne Australia) and has been gigging, playing, and writing songs ever since.

Jackson moved to Eugene in July of 2014 and now plays shows with her current band Saffron - a hard rock trio. Recently they independently released their first album of eight original compositions.

Alex's submission to the 2016 NPR Tiny Desk Contest was selected as JPR's Regional Favorite.
