Event Details


Jackson Whalan is an American lyricist and producer known for his high-impact rapping, music production, live performance and collaboration. He has independently released over 100 songs, including LPs, EPs, singles and features, while touring extensively, both solo and with a live band.
“Berkshire, Massachusetts-based emcee/producer Jackson Whalan delivers the bangin’, bluesy “From the Woods (Remix)” featuring KRS-One, the hip-hop icon and co-founder of Boogie Down Productions. A studio daydream that manifested into a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, the cut brings together an iconic pillar and omnipresent voice of hip-hop culture and a promising young artist who is putting his own righteous energy into sound art. The results are nothing short of stunning, as KRS-One brings his inimitable presence and bombastic South Bronx style to the thumpin’ “From the Woods” (Remix)…” – B. Getz via Live for Live Music
Jackson was born and raised in Berkshire County, on the western edge of Massachusetts. There were very few examples of hip-hop artists from his rural hometown, but the music made its way into his life when he found CDs that belonged his older brother. Inspired at age 11 by The Score by The Fugees, Illmatic by Nas, and other late 90s hip-hop, Jackson forged a path not previously traveled by any white kid from The Berkshires.
