Studio Session: Jackson Howard


Jackson Howard is a singer/songwriter from Mechanicsburg, PA. “About Life” is Jackson’s debut studio album, and is available on iTunes, Spotify, and CD Baby.

“Yes, while I always have played music, it wasn’t until about two years ago that I began writing again and occasionally getting back on a stage.  I moved to Saint Louis after finishing a

doctorate of exercise physiology in Pittsburgh to research behavioral treatment for obesity at Washington University.  There is such a vibrant music scene and amazing music community in Saint Louis that I couldn’t help but drag my guitar out of my closet and start playing again.  Other local musicians were so encouraging, and pushed me to perform more frequently, in more venues, they gave me great advice on all aspects of the business and soon I was making a true living from my performances alone.  At that point, the decision to leave the medical school was a no-brainer,” tells Howard.

He’s playing a Mother’s Day Show on May 8th at the Harrisburg Midtown Arts Center at 8pm.
