The young Briton sings with body and soul, he has total control over his voice and yet is full of emotions. This ingenious combination is sometimes hard to find.
Goose bumps include his versions of “Free Fallin ‘” by singer Tom Petty, who died this year, “Georgia On My Mind” by the legendary Ray Charles, and “Bridge Over Troubled Water” by Simon & Garfunkel, all songs that are exceptional have accompanied since childhood. Meanwhile, Jackson has released his third album, Tall Tales and Rumors. And in February, his first live album will be released.
Whether songs about love, life, his experiences on tour or at home in the south of England: Luke Jackson writes with great emotion, and it not only gives a lot of pleasure to listen to his uniquely beautiful voice, but to follow what he Wants to tell line by line. He shapes every single word as if it were the most important of the lyrics. This is acknowledged by the audience with thunderous applause. In the second encore Jackson goes right into the audience and chases this one last comforting shiver over the back. To experience his version of “Make It Rain” so close up is something very special. The title of Foy Vance has already been covered by Ed Sheeran, but Jackson puts unplugged yet on it. Simply terrific!‘
