The Jackson Rider


The Jackson Rider is a music outfit that hails from Philadelphia. As brothers and musicians, they have come together to create and perform live original music. In the vein of Rock, Rhythm & Roots, Hip Hop and Soul, TJR likes to occasionally stroll the fine line of fusion. Take a little bit of Sublime, a pinch of Counting Crows, a hint of Avett Brothers, and you’ve got yourself a slice of Jackson Rider Pie.

Delivering solid Indie credentials with a street savvy swagger, The Jackson Rider is undoubtedly making waves on the Philadelphia music scene and leaving sold out shows in their wake.  They've racked up local radio play and have established prime gigging real estate (Theater of Living Arts (TLA) World Cafe Live, The Legendary Dobbs, House of Blues, Escape2NY Music Festival, The Trocadero, Tin Angel, Doc Watsons (RIP) and North Star).

With their self-released debut album “Mighty Wind Blower” officially under their belt as of 2012, The Jackson Rider continues to grow in popularity – building a fan base and creating buzz beyond the local scope, and venturing onto a national level. Already gearing up for their sophomore album, The Jackson Rider is bound and determined to climb as many rungs as they can on this musical ladder!!  

Band Updates: They start recording our 2nd album April 15th with engineer/producer Mr. Wayne Shannon, and will hit the road for a few weeks in June for a small southern tour (June 21st & 22nd in Charleston SC, June 23 & 24th Columbia SC, other cities and dates TBA).
