Episode 9: Robin Jackson

A decade ago I walked up a few creaky wood stairs onto a covered front porch full of piles of shoes and entered Robin Jackson’s house in Portland, Oregon with the Songwriter Soiree in full swing - a monthly open mic with guest musicians, a fun neighborhood vibe, and a community that welcomed me in and gave me a plate of food and a chair.You may have heard or seen Robin Jackson perform previously in March Fourth Marching Band, Vagabond Opera, or more recently in 2019 with dance/electronic artist, The Polish Ambassador. Robin is a multi-instrumentalist, a man about town, performing with his six-piece band The Caravan when he’s not facilitating retreats or touring with other artists. He has released two albums, Dark Stars (2017) and Dust Diaries (2012), has 10+ years experience touring the world with bands, and hosts the Soiree Retreat, a four-day event open to anyone interested in art, the craft of songwriting, learning music, or enjoying community and connection.Robin talks about life on the road, life after the road, his passion for creating community through hosting music events, and how those events have changed his life.Welcome to Episode 9.MUSIC CREDITSOPHELIA- (INTRO/OUTRO) - LES HAYDENROSES AND GOLD - ROBIN JACKSONDYNOMITE - MARCH 4TH MARCHING BANDOCTOBER RAIN - ROBIN JACKSONPORTLAND TRAFFIC - ROBIN JACKSONHOSTED & RECORDED BY MICHELLE MCAFEEWWW.SONGBONES.COM© 2018-2020 SONGBONES MAGAZINE AND PODCAST
