JaXson to Release ‘5am’ this Friday

JaXson is the brainchild of Wexford singer-songwriter Luke Jackson.

Luke has been slowly climbing the ladder ever since he began playing under the moniker, JaXson, in January 2017.

Some of his early highlights include played to a packed crowd at Vantastival 2018, playing Sofar Sounds Dublin, supporting Little Hours in Waterford & landing a slot on the RTÉ 2FM Play The Picnic Stage at Electric Picnic!

JaXson released his single, ‘We Were Born’, on 14th September, 3 days after a live version aired on Today FM’s Lost In Music.

The track was hugely supported by Irish radio and has received rave reviews from a number of blogs & magazines. It was also selected for Spotify’s ‘A Breath of Fresh Éire’ playlist as well as being pushed heavily on Discover Weekly & Release Radar.

2019 started with JaXson being chosen as one of GoldenPlec’s ‘Plec Picks’, Ones To Watch for 2019 as well as playing some support shows with Paddy Casey & Hudson Taylor.

In February, he played a support slot for alternative Liverpool band, SPINN, at The Academy 2, Dublin which was promoted by MCD.

JaXson attempts to resonate with his listeners once more as he prepares to release his brand new single, ‘5am’.

It is another powerful offering from the 23-year-old and he hopes it can strike a chord, just like his last single did back in September.

“I just hope it gives people the strength that it gave me and that people really connect to it.”

“That’s what it’s all about for me.”

‘5am’ is available on all major platforms on Friday, April 5th.
