Brooklyn-based and Bayou-reared Meshach Jackson delivers his soulful lyrics with an emotional intensity that can only come from someone who was raised on equal parts gospel and grunge. Meshach draws the audience in with his emotionally raw, intimately truthful lyrics and impassioned stage presence. Inspired by the authentic and searching for the heart of American music, Meshach’s work is largely influenced by his childhood as the son of a southern preacher who ran a boys home for troubled teens.
After leaving the ministry himself, Meshach traveled the country many times by car, bus, and train, developing his sound in from the soul of New Orleans to the grime of New York City; from the grit of Austin to the groove of Los Angeles and beyond. Between the middle of the night in Little Rock, Arkansas to morning in Fargo, North Dakota these journeys have all left their imprint on Meshach’s evocative sound, which he brings to the stage as an acoustic trio accompanied by an assortment of established musicians from the San Francisco Bay Area.
