During his college days at Brown University, Seth bought a guitar and started learning chords. It wasn't until he was an MBA student at the Wharton School when he wrote his first song,. The very next song he wrote received airplay in the Boston area. The Beat Magazine wrote, "Be on the Seth Jackson alert."
Dozens of Seth’s songs have been placed on artist projects, in film, and TV. Several made the Top 10 on the European Country Music Association airplay charts with one hitting #1 . His song, "X-Ray", recorded by German pop band Hella Donna, made it to #20 in the world on the Music Worx deejay chart and was the #1 download.
In 2017, after many years of writing for others, Seth felt it was time to record his own album. As an independent artist, it was liberating to be able to choose the songs he loves without having to go through music industry middlemen and gatekeepers. This gave him the freedom to choose a variety of material including songs written decades ago to ones written just days prior to going into the studio.
