Track Premiere: Craig Jackson Band “Don’t Write Me Off”
Hailing from Southern California, Craig Jackson grew up surrounded by the sounds of the Grateful Dead, Tom Petty, and Jackson Browne. Now based in Nashville, Jackson is preparing to release his latest full-length, Stars In Her Crown, on May 26th. Jackson says of the album, “In early September 2016 I recorded the new record pretty much live to tape. We spent a week cutting and a few days for vocals and acoustics at Battletapes Audio in my old neighborhood Inglewood, Tn. It was an awesome time. I had a great band for the record and am so grateful to have had them be a part of bringing this album to life. I am looking forward to the release of the record Stars In Her Crown.“
No Depression is pleased to premiere one of the project’s tracks, “Don’t Write Me Off,” a mid-tempo roots rocker accented by touches of organ and propelled by a guitar-fueled shuffle and Jackson’s familiar, gritty vocals.
“I used to smoke the dope, chase the rope til it got a hold on me
Thought I was flying with the angels to the foundry on my knees
I used to chase the skirt, sling the dirt tryin’ to bury all of these scars
Sometimes it’s easier to run away than find out who we are”
