Bethlehem, PA (April 6, 2006)–Aspiring country singer/songwriter, Nathan Lee Jackson, recently signed with StarCity Productions, led by producer/engineer Jeff Glixman and partner Jim Gentile. Jackson is currently working with Glixman on his first album for StarCity Productions at StarCity Recording Company, in Bethlehem, PA.
Nathan Lee Jackson signing with Star City’s Jeff GlixmanWhen Jackson first performed for Glixman, StarCity’s president, an immediate connection was made. “I became very impressed with not only Nathan’s talent, but also with the person inside,” commented Glixman. “He is a wonderful person, incredible performer and a gifted songwriter. Nathan’s capacity to compose a song on demand and across various genres has enabled him to compile a large catalog of material to choose from. In the studio, he exceeded my expectations in every way.”
StarCity Productions is providing Jackson with the total recording experience, including studio time, musicians, and production, as well as access to a team of industry professionals and experts while still allowing him to retain creative control.
“Nathan’s style is quite unique; whereas he cannot be classified entirely as Americana, he is also not the ‘big-hat, hell-raising cowboy’ stereotyped with country music,” Glixman continued. “Reaching into my past experiences as a musician, I would rather see Nathan have creative balance and not feel pressured to chase after the current fad. This is a team effort with my co-producer Zak Rizvi and executive producer Jim Gentile, and our primary goal is to protect and enhance Nathan’s musical instincts, allowing him to grow at his own pace without the confines of ‘this week’s’ marketing trend. We are assembling an eclectic group of musicians to achieve the desired ‘no boundaries’ goal for this project.”
Inspired by his grandmother’s love of music–he still recalls memories of singing hymns with her on the front porch–Jackson followed his passion and curiosities to his home church in Winchester, Kentucky for his first solo performance. By the age of 14, he began testing his songwriting skills, where he was quick to find his natural gift as a lyricist and ability to channel his emotions through words and notes. To further pursue his dreams, he decided to move to Nashville, where he presently resides.
Jackson’s current project with StarCity can be described as “honest” country music with a solid rock foundation. It includes a piece titled, “Kentucky Breeze,” where Jackson is accompanied by a 26-piece orchestra band. The album is scheduled for a 2006 Fall Release.
“Recording in StarCity has been better than I ever imagined,” Jackson shared. “The quality of work is superb. Everything from the creative process to the musical ideas to the engineering is top-of-the-line. It’s exactly what I’ve been looking for.”
