Originally writing in the comfort of his bedroom with just the four walls around him to judge, he first began to venture out after a fortuitous video was filmed by a close friend and uploaded onto YouTube. This led on to the demand for him to head out and start playing shows around the UK to his ever growing and committed following. Jacko quickly caught the eye of French videographer Rod Maurice of Le Hiboo who invited him to Paris to headline the Café De Lanse, quickly followed by a short European tour.
Jacko’s tour history includes performances with Chet Faker, James Blunt, James Bay, Michael Kiwanuka, Kiefer Sutherland, Russian Red, Freya Ridings, Rachel Sermanni, SOAK, Amber Run, Foxes, Paul Carrack and many more.
Jacko also runs one of the South Coasts leading independent promotions companies and boutique record labels; Folklore Sessions and has released records with Bess Atwell , George Ogilvie , Oktoba and others.
