Welcome to the official site for Tom Jackson, notable film and television actor, indelible singer and one of Canada’s best activists.

This site merges the man and his multiple careers both on and off stage and his varied philanthropic missions.

Release September 29, 2015
For over 40 years, actor, singer, producer, activist, Tom Jackson has crafted a compassionate stage of caring. This is strongly reflected on the songs from his new album, Ballads Not Bullets, out on October 16, 2015 with Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. The album features 10 original songs, including the stunning first single, Blue Water. When fans purchase Ballads Not Bullets, they’ll not only be enjoying the incredible new songs from Jackson, but will also help the Canadian Red Cross in its efforts to alleviate human suffering wherever it may be found.

Produced by Jackson and multi-award winner Tom McKillip (2007 CCMA Producer of the Year), Ballads Not Bullets marks Jackson’s 16th album. “When I was a young man, I had a choice to make – Ballads or Bullets, I chose ballads…BNB is not just a ballad for peace but also for freedom, Mother Earth, wellness, heroes and love,” says Jackson. “We could put an end to war if we fought no more forever. Peace would open up the door. I’m not saying, I’m just saying.”

Born to an English father and Cree mother, Jackson’s first love has always been music. Through this passion he has spent years creating change with the touch of a song, a poem, a musical or a concert tour. In November he will take to the road with The Huron Carole Galas, marking 28 years of cross Canada travel raising awareness and funds for food banks and charitable organizations.
