Jackson Boone is a songwriter who quietly emerged from the misty magic of Portland, Oregon in late 2013. With the help of producer Riley Geare (Unknown Mortal Orchestra), bassist Randy Bemrose (Radiation City), Violinist Patti King (Radiation City), and a few close friends, Jackson recorded his first solo album, Starlit, in the basement of a green house in NE Portland. Immediately after Starlit’s release, Boone, his five piece live band ("Jackson Boone & The Ocean Ghosts"), and Riley Geare, packed up their equipment and took off to the Oregon Coast, where they spent two weeks tracking a new record by the beach. The byproduct, Natural Changes, was self released in September of 2015.
Jackson Boone’s music has been featured by KEXP, Stereogum, Impose Magazine, and other publications. With his band, Jackson Boone & the Ocean Ghosts, he has performed at festivals like SXSW, Treefort Music Festival, Pickathon, and the CMJ Music Marathon. The band has also toured through Portland mainstays like the Bunk Bar, Mississippi Studios, and Doug Fir, as well as venues across the country.
In 2016, Jackson Boone and The Ocean Ghosts returned to the Oregon Coast to track their 3rd full length studio album, Organic Light Factory, which was released in Spring 2017.
"Dreamy and gooey, his vocals and velvet synths surround us as we journey through his lo-fi expressions." - IMPOSE
"In a league of its own, offering the sweet, succulent textures one might expect to hear in a joint off the Mediterranean coast." - Atwood
“It’s like you can see the sound glimmering.” - Stereogum
"Jackson Boone makes vintage-sounding dream rock with a very subtle and meticulous emphasis on production." - Magnet Magazine
“...a positively gorgeous slice of psych-folk that somehow surpasses the majestic scope of Starlit, one of the best albums to come out of Portland in 2014.” - Vortex Music Magazine
"...where Natural Changes starts to deviate from its predecessor is on the third track, “Runaway.” This song is the pop-iest of the whole album — intoxicating guitar hooks cozied up to an ultra funky, burbling bass-line." - Noise & Color PDX
