“Americana songwriters are a dime a dozen these days, but few are writing songs like Jackson Emmer.” – Rolling Stone
He can’t help it. Songs keep Jackson Emmer up at night. Born with an unrelenting creative spark, Emmer has quietly built his reputation as a songwriter’s songwriter on the outskirts of country music. His work blends humor with heartache, and tradition with exploration. Emmer’s whiskey-smooth, conversational singing style is as distinct as his writing. He often croons at a whisper, drawing listeners in with his relaxed, understated delivery. Lately, Emmer has drawn critical acclaim for his 2018, sophomore album, “Jukebox.”
Emmer lives in Carbondale, Colorado.
