ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
George Sanford Jackson’s first album – „Alright“ has been released.
The album promises to please listeners who appreciate music combining the elements of pop, rock, country, folk, R&B and songs with a straight forward beat and catchy licks, as well as gripping ballads.

Jackson’s strong, soulful voice with an unmistakable country touch, together with his talent of writing intuitive songs with clever, drawn from life lyrics, ensure a toe-tapping, passionate and exciting album.

The first song on this album „Nothing Ain’t Right“ with it’s midtempo beat and cynical lyrics is followed by the bouncy sing-along tune „A Woman Needs A Man“ and the riff driven „Amazing“. Jackson then pleases the listener with the memorable pop song „She’s Alright“ and the story telling „Easy Livin’“, arranged in a classic West Coast style. „Why Did You Love Me“ is a melancholy ballad with beautiful backing vocal arrangements where Jackson shows his talent as a singer, composer and arranger. The Cajun-music influenced „Lay Off Of Me“ and finger-snappin’ country-pop tune „It Doesn’t Matter To Me“ are the fun songs on this album and are followed by the grungy, wah-wah guitar loaded and sexy „Give Me Love“. The album ends with „How I Miss You“, a melancholy love song, which shouldn’t leave anyone with a heart untouched.

All of this adds up to a well-crafted and elaborate album, assembled by Jackson’s skill as a songwriter, musician and vocalist. It is to be noticed that Jackson released a true one-man-band album, allowing no one but himself to ever lay hands upon his work, which lead to this unique creation. Composition, arrangement, programming, recording, instrumental and vocal performance, pre-mastering and album artwork were solely done by Jackson in his studio in Vienna, Austria. Only for the last step, the separation-mastering process, he teamed up with mastering genius John Vestman in California, USA.

Since George Sanford Jackson is also releasing the album on his own label, fittingly named „Forty And Over“ this release is almost like a new debut for the artist.

Personal: Born in Aberdeen, Maryland USA in 1962, George S. Jackson spent his early years in Virginia and California before moving to Vienna, Austria at the age of six. As a child he started singing and composing his own songs on the piano and took professional piano lessons until discovering the guitar to be the right instrument for his style of music and to accompany his singing. During the time in high school and college, the artist had his own rock & roll bands, playing gigs in clubs, concert halls and festivals. The bands were locally successful, winning several newcomer band contests and touring through parts of Austria. After jackson's last band broke up in the mid 80's, he established a recording studio, composing and producing radio and TV jingles. His most recent project was the production of his own CD "Alright".

Solid music. Well worth a try and a buy
I like solid music with melody and good rhythms and this is what you get on this CD. Perhaps not hip, not in, not ultra-modern but well crafted and well played. Jackson has a great and most pleasant voice and is a vocalist who sings his songs with feeling and without any unnecessary frills. Jackson also did a fine job on the lyrics which are cynical, meaningful, mostly a bit sad and even funny at times. The songs on this CD range from Pop to Country and R&B to Rock. Well worth a try and a buy.

Great work
This is a very well produced album with top notch songs, musicianship and vocals. George Sanford Jackson has put together an album here that rivals anything out there now!!!

Lars G Lindberg - Radio Siljan - Sweden


Imagen that you can find the sound of Eagles, Beach Boys and many others in the tunes of George and add to it that he does all the playing by himself and you get just as knocked out as I was. It´s absolute one of the best artists I´ve heard ina veeeeeeery long time. Great lyrics, great arrangements and a great voice. All in the package of one debut album. I can´t remember that I´ve heard any stronger act for years. If you don´t mind the word - It´s One Hell Of An Album. Buy It.....

Colin Macpherson

Fantastic Country/pop CD from a talented Artist
Discovered this artist by accident. Wow was I pleased when the CD arrived and I played all the tracks right through. There is something for everyone. I love George's singing voice and the fantastic backing he has laid down. His guitar playing is fantastic. This should be listened to by all, it can't fail to please. I hopefully look forward to another new release sometime.

Eugen Maria Schulak - Vienna, Austria

An astounding and beautiful album which I can truly recommend.
Jackson’s debut-album is a delightful experience, no matter if listened to casually while driving or attentively at home on a high-end speaker system. The album consist of ten original compositions, brilliantly arranged and written in the style of american roots-pop music.
Down-to-earth rhythms, a vast amount of different guitar tracks and grand backing-vocal arrangements are the framework for these ten short-story songs.
The whole production is a luscious and dense package, yet never sounding flashy and overproduced. And best of all: Jackson can sing and has the right voice to make those american roots thrive and prosper. Here and there one may detect a sense of melancholy, which makes one feel cozily soulful rather than sad.
All in all “Alright” has become an astounding and beautiful album which I can truly recommend.
