JACKSON CARROLL - Performance Thursday 21 May 7pm

MITB Jackson-Carroll-web

Jackson Carroll unveiled his new single, Happyman recently. It’s the perfect song to demonstrate Carroll’s versatility as a songwriter and performer. Known for injecting his music with an earthy richness that pulls from a blues-influenced emotional centre, Happyman puts Carroll in an up-tempo and shining songwriting space. Taken from his forthcoming EP Name It After Me, Happyman’ is a great entry point for newcomers to his sound, while a great progression for longtime fans to get around.

“It is more of a song about hope than happiness. It’s about trying to get to a happy place, to become a happy person. It’s more about desire and looking for desire in your immediate surroundings, looking for desire in other people.” - Jackson Carroll

Jackson’s growth as a songwriter is evident throughout the Name It After Me EP. Previous releases have seen him compared to the likes of Matt Corby and Jeff Buckley, while his collection of music shows that Jackson Carroll is embracing a creative identity all his own.
