Indie acoustic pop/rock artist Carly Jo Jackson has a vocal tone that is as infectious as her charismatic stage presence. It is her voice that turned the heads of the celebrity judges in 2014 on NBC’s America’s Got Talent where where she appeared in two televised episodes. The experience was enough to fuel her passion to pursue her life-long dream as a full time recording and performing artist. The dream started when she was a child but grew wings when she received a guitar for her 16th birthday and began writing songs and performing in coffee shops in her hometown of Orlando. She released her first EP at just 17 and while in college in south Florida she released her critically acclaimed coming-of-age single “Wildflower” which led to her fans calling themselves her “Wildflowers”. She has been recording and performing full time ever since. Her recordings have focused on her singer/songwriter side as well as collaborations in country and pop, but in 2018 she will be releasing new music to capture her dynamic indie-rock style that has been receiving critical acclaim with her live performances. Music blogger Rara's Farm counted Carly as one of the top performers at the 2018 Florida Music Festival and described her as "a dynamic performer who drips with charisma, and is quite comfortable fronting her band. She has a powerful, gritty voice and continues to grow as a performer." contact: email@example.com (photo credit - Ron Navarette Photography)
