出生于Texas的Jackson Taylor从小就展示出了自己对音乐的热情，在Willie, Billy Joe Shaver 和 Waylon音乐的熏陶下，乡村音乐在他年幼的心灵深深地埋下了的种子。
但由于生活所迫，父亲不得不带他背井离乡，来到California需找工作，高中毕业后Jackson 再次返回家乡，但随即又去了 Nashville，在那里 Nashville作为Of music和Dewayne Blackwell的songwriter。几年后他发现Nashville并不是一个任他施展抱负的地方，他说：“在Nashville你必须追随效仿Tim McGraw、Mark Wills，不能脱离民谣，但这病是我心中的音乐。如果让我做我根本不在乎的事情，那我宁可回到学校读书再找一份兼职。”
于是Jackson来到了New York，在Club里打工 ，与此同时他也发现了一个充满活力的生活场景：结识了Southern California厂牌的东家。并在最初会面的一个月中制作了一录音室单曲：Humboldt County，纪念已经死去的哥哥。出乎意料是Humboldt County获得了很多好评，并得到了流行大亨George Tobin的欣赏，签下一纸合约。但好景不长，很快Jackson很快便发现Tobin也和Nashville的人们一样，电台也是迎合大众口味，两人在音乐的取舍上很快起了分歧，最后Jackson选择了离开，但这并没影响到他与 Tobin的友情。
于是Jackson又回到了故乡Texas，因为那里不是LA也不是New York，但对于Jackson这些足够了。在离开LA之前Jackson录制了一张录音室专辑Gypsies & Drifter，定居于Austin后她录制了自己的第三章专辑Hollow Eyed & Wasted。现在Jackson又回来了，从他出生的地方带着源自血液里的音乐。
The Jackson Taylor Band has gone through many line ups over the last few years. The one constant though has been singer/songwriter Jackson Lee Taylor. Jackson's passion for music began as a little boy in Moody, Texas, a small town just north of Austin. His father would take him to see the greats such as Willie, Billy Joe Shaver and Waylon. These musicians planted a deep seed in the heart and mind of that young boy.
Jackson was heart broken when he and his father moved to California to find work on fruit ranches. He and his father spent the rest of Jackson's adolescence bouncing from one migrant labor town to another, finally settling in a small farming town in Washington state.
After high school, Jackson moved back to Texas for a while before going to Nashville. There, Jackson found work as a songwriter for Of music, and for legendary song writer Dewayne Blackwell. After a couple of years, Jackson had to face the hard truth that Nashville would not let him produce and pick his own material. ("I ain't got nothing against Tim McGraw or Mark Wills or none of those folks, but that just ain't the kind of music I feel in my heart. If I am going to do something I don't care to do, I might as well go back to school and a day job." )
Jackson moved to New York City to play clubs, and found a vibrant live scene. There Jackson met the owner of a small Southern California label. Within a month of the meeting, Jackson was in the studio recording "Humboldt County," a record dedicated to his brother who had died there the year before. "Humboldt" got great reviews and did well enough to gain attention from pop mogul George Tobin. Jackson and Tobin struck a deal. After a year Jackson realized Tobin was the same as the Nashville crowd; whatever is on the radio is what you need to sound like. Jackson and Tobin where never able to agree on a song selection or sound, but they parted ways as friends.
Jackson talked to his label and told them he wanted to go back home to Texas. Gaske had reservations, because Texas wasn't LA, Nashville or New York, but Jackson said that was the whole point. Before leaving from Los Angeles and heading to Austin, Jackson went into the studio and recorded "Gypsies & Drifters." After getting settled in Austin, Jackson had to go back up North for a few months to play previously booked shows. While he was there he recorded his third CD "Hollow Eyed & Wasted." Now Jackson is back in Texas where he belongs, writing and producing the kind of music he was born to do.
