Tom Jackson claims music is his first love. It was the social heartbeat of his early family life, and after being handed a guitar at age 10, he is rarely seen without a six-stringed instrument by his side.
Dubbed ‘minstrel with a message’ Tom’s 40+ years of songwriting has become his vehicle for social change. At the 2007 Junos, the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) bestowed Tom with the Humanitarian Award in recognition for his positive contributions to the social landscape of Canada.
Tom’s latest album was released by Universal Music on October 16, 2015. Ballads Not Bullets – produced by both Tom and Tom McKillip – focuses on global wellness from the environment to the humanitarian with the poetic eloquence of storytelling in the spoken word to full orchestration. Listen to Tom’s latest single Blue Water.
Ballads Not Bullets is available on iTunes and Amazon and wherever music is sold.
Whether in concert, or in a conference plenary, Tom’s music has the last word.
Tom made our first annual Mac & Cheese Luncheon an unqualified success in every respect – net revenue from it was $27,426.12
