EP: Delta Jackson
Release Date: April 20, 2018
Vancouver based Delta Jackson has released her debut, self-titled EP. Jackson, real name Jaclyn Guillou, is a previous JUNO Award nominee, put together the five track release with a number of talented bandmates, including Ethan Jones, Paul Stacey, David Caitlin-Birch, and many more.
For the most part, the EP is slow and laid back with beautiful vocals and piano backing the lyrics. Although not an EP you may want to listen to to get into the mood for a party or night out, the debut EP definitely coaxes the listener into relaxing and just enjoying the music. “Gimme One More”, in particular, is one of the slower songs but has bits and pieces with an organ playing and is spectacular. “Willin’”, the opening track, is a bit more quick paced than the other songs and sets the tone for the album quite well. It shows off the musical talent of the band, as well as the range Jackson is able to achieve.
Overall, this debut is a strong start for Delta Jackson. Some listeners may want more of a variety in the songs she puts out in the future; perhaps more upbeat songs put into the mix of slower songs, but her fans are sure to love the album. There is no denying the level of talent that she and her studio band have and they are sure to reach great heights and success in the future.
I’m a Toronto girl born and raised but have been living in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick since 2010. Music and writing are my two passions, so what better place for me to be than a writer with Canadian Beats? I have been writing for the blog since May of 2013 and have had so many great experiences because of it. I listen to almost every kind of music but my favourites are pop rock, rock, indie, folk, and any other combinations of them. Concerts are definitely my favourite place to be, especially when you’re right against the barricade and can feel the energy from the band and the crowd, everyone singing the same lyrics and moving to the music. I also have a college degree in Business Administration and hope to one day be able to publish a novel.
