Seth Jackson - Songwriter
(Los Angeles, CA)
Seth Jackson wrote his first song in 1983, while he was studying for his MBA degree at the Wharton School. The second song he ever wrote, called "The Atomic Bop", received airplay on WAAF-FM in the Boston area. The song caught the ear of the local music press, prompting The Beat Magazine to write, "Be on the Seth Jackson alert..." Several years later, Seth left the corporate world to study at the Grove School of Music in Los Angeles, where he earned a diploma in Songwriting.
An ASCAP member, Seth is NSAI Regional Coordinator for the Los Angeles/Pasadena area. While he has primarily focused on honing the craft of country music, he also likes to write rock, pop, blues, and novelty songs. Seth promotes his catalog through certain Nashville publishers and also through his own publishing company, Row Town Music.
Seth’s song, “My Lucky Stars and Stripes”, was released as a single by Dyers Daughters in 2004 and received airplay on over 40 radio stations nationwide. The song reached #15 on the FMQB-AC chart, which tracks airplay in secondary markets.
