Kevin Jackson – Elevation

Baltimore’s own Kevin Jackson recorded and performed with artists Sheila E., Chico Debarge, Jennifer Holliday, Maysa, Oli Silk, and more. His potent mix of soulful R&B, rock, contemporary Christian, and contemporary jazz offers something for every taste. On stage, it’s easy to see this is where he is most comfortable. Kevin is a laid back guitar player, but don’t let that fool you. Live, he and his band sneak up on you with tight grooves and sly melodies.

Jackson’s first CD, “Stories in Color”, debuted in 2012. That same year, Jackson was a featured artist at the legendary Blues Alley in Washington, DC, and at Artscape here in Baltimore. In 2015, Jackson released “The Mirrored Truth”. The album and song “Favorite Way” was considered for a GRAMMY nomination for best traditional R&B album of the year and best traditional R&B song of the year. His next album Full Circle (2018) is still available on iTunes.

His newest album is Elevation (2021). Get the album on Apple Music.
