"A catchy and captivating song-crafter, a true storyteller.” —WBEZ, Chicago

Award winning Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Robin Jackson, known for his wild, theatrical contributions to bands like Vagabond Opera and the March Fourth Marching Band, releases his second solo record.  Mr Jackson, often joined by his all-star six piece ensemble of NW musicians The Caravan, draws upon the moody spirit of his rain-soaked, Portland, Or. home to create an eclectic brew of dreamy folk-pop, cinematic indie rock and above all, enigmatic storytelling. 

The album, due out November 3, was partially recorded at Portland’s legendary Type Foundry studios (The Decemberists, REM, Modest Mouse).

The Portland album release show features the entire recording cast plus special guests The Colin Trio, opening the night!

Robin Jackson
With a degree in ethnomusicology and an unflagging musical curiosity, Jackson has lived and busked around the world, from an intentional beach community in New Zealand to the streets of Europe. He is a master of a myriad of instruments, from saxophone to mbira and has also performed or recorded with notable acts such as Gregory Allen Isakov, Emancipator, Devotchka, and Amanda Palmer. An impresario of community and collaboration, Jackson has built on his colorful, bohemian upbringing and dedicated himself to creating and supporting music around Portland, Or where he lives on an urban farm with his cat and a circus. His upcoming album, Dark Stars, was recorded in the legendary Type Foundry Studio and is due out November 3.
The Colin Trio - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
