30-year old trumpet player Jackson Mathod studied Jazz at Guildhall, where he developed his undeniable skills on the instrument and sensibility for songwriting. However, never feeling fully embedded in the jazz world, he quickly went onto the session musician circuit, playing for high profile artists such as Stormzy or Jordan Rakei.
A performer at heart, he started his own function band in parallel, with the role of frontman to fulfil his long love for singing.
“I’m really trying to bridge the gap between me as an instrumentalist and a singersongwriter" says Jackson.
“Jackson Mathod plays with a genuine love for Jazz music. His ability to convey truth in his solos is a tonic and his potential as an artist excites me. Jackson’s playing adheres to the values of blues, swing and community, he represents himself with honesty and dignity and reflects with abundance the characteristics that this music’s future will thrive on.” – Jazz on BBC3 - Julian Joseph
