I am for hire as a singer, guitarist, and bass player. I perform solo, or can bring additional players depending on the booking/event.

Please use my contact form to discuss. Thanks!


I offer online workshops each month via Zoom. Details posted here.

(How to Book A Tour, 10 Things Every Guitar Player Should Know, etc.)

I also teach individual, private lessons (guitar, songwriting), in the Roaring Fork Valley and via Video Chat. Please reach out via my contact form to discuss.


I am a recording engineer, producer, and session player. I work at my home studio in Carbondale, CO, but I also collaborate with Diamond Ranch Studio, also in Carbondale.

Please visit the Diamond Ranch page for more info, or contact me directly if I can be of service.


“Jackson’s approach to learning guitar is hands down the best I have had. I just wanted to be able to play a song around a campfire. We have far surpassed that. He makes learning easy, while still getting tons of knowledge. Not only has Jackson helped with my guitar playing, he has taught and helped me with songwriting – Something I didn’t even know I had in me. With Jackson, I am always looking forward to the next lesson.” – Travis
