Ronnie Jackson


Ronnie was born in Corpus Christi Texas. He grew up in the suburbs of Southwest Houston in the 1960s. He started playing the guitar shortly after that Sunday night when the Fab Four graced the stage of the Ed Sullivan Theatre. By the time he was in middle school he was playing at school dances and private parties. As the front man of Harvey’s Meat Market, he led his band to compete in numerous Battles of the Bands competitions. He matured musically and enjoyed much success throughout his teen years. Somewhere along the way he started writing songs. He didn't choose to be a songwriter. It choose him.

In the early 70s he traded his electric guitar for an old Martin D35 and hit the road to see the world. He traveled the crawfish circuit from Jacksonville Florida to Southern California, where he landed in San Diego for several years working on his songwriting. As the writer's block began to set in he returned home to Texas, where he and settled in Austin, The Live Music Capitol of the World. Austin was also home to such songwriting troubadours  as Willie Nelson, Jerry Jeff Walker and Ray Wylie Hubbard. Ronnie fit right in to the Cosmic Cowboy Culture and continued to write and perform his songs places like the Alamo Hotel and the Armadillo World Headquarters. He competed and placed in numerous songwriting competitions including the Austin Songwriters competition and the Kerrville Folk Festival.

Ronnie recorded and released a compilation of songs, Love Songs & Lullabies, in 2011. Since its release he has grown into a seasoned and dedicated songwriter; writing, recording and producing songs in the Americana, Country and Pop Genre. He is constantly striving to polish his craft and write better songs, attending songwriting symposiums and workshops around the country. He has built a network of co-writers and collaborators that spans the globe and is committed to making the world a better place thru music. Today more than ever, the world need songs
