Carly Jo Jackson
Carly Jo Jackson is a south Florida-based indie/acoustic-pop artist with a soulful vocal tone that is as infectious as her stage presence. She delivers energy and passion in every performance including her 2014 appearance on NBC’s America's Got Talent where she was praised by the celebrity judges for her charisma as well as her captivating voice. At the 2017 Florida Music Festival, blogger Rara's Farm described her as "vivacious with an invigorating performance that stole the show".
She tours and performs across the U.S. and abroad. Her music has been licensed in small films and TV commercials including the department store Belks' national TV commercial in 2015 where she also makes an onscreen appearance. A highlight of 2016 was performing at a San Francisco 49ers game as part of a fall tour where her upbeat single “Oh Yeah” got hands clapping when it was featured before 60,000 football fans. She kicked off 2017 with performances at the iconic 30A Songwriters Festival followed up by her first trip to Texas for Austin's South By Southwest (SXSW) and performances at the Texas Indie Music Fest and Red Gorilla Music Festival. She is currently endorsed by Luna Guitars and Samson Technologies.
Carly Jo's passion for music started early as a vocalist, but grew wings when she received a guitar for her 16th birthday and began writing songs and performing in cafes in her hometown of Orlando. Writing with a maturity well beyond her years, she recorded her first EP at just 17. While in college she released her award-winning coming-of-age single “Wildflower”. Carly Jo continues to grow as a songwriter, having completed her second EP “Color Show” in 2016, and to hone her magnetic stage presence as a full-time performing artist. She has new releases planned for fall 2017.
