After The Storm relates to the mindset that these songs were written. Each song is a reflective viewpoint on a personal story or scenario Jacko has found himself in. After things got to a point of magnitude and peaked these songs became the outcome of those situations. Watch here.
Recorded and mixed by best friend and fellow musician Josh Trinnaman with Jacko on co-production, ‘After the Storm’ sees an incredibly talented set of Brighton musicians come to together, Lewis Whittington (Rizzle Kicks) on drums, Chris Martyr (Calico) on bass, Rebecca Brandler (Paper Hawk) on backing vocals, Jack Wintermeyer (Wintermeyer) on electric guitar and Josh Trinnaman (Luo) on keys.
After the acclaimed and successful ‘For You’ EP Jacko took some time out to catch his breath and came back in 2016 with an arsenal of songs that have steadily raised him to the next level of his career, seeing him support such artists as James Bay, Chet Faker, Amber Run, Foxes, Soak, Frances and James Blunt, who personally selected Jacko to open for him as sole support at the 5,000 capacity Brighton Centre. Jacko also recently performed at London’s Royal Festival hall for a celebration of youth culture in music.
Alongside writing and performing Jacko also hosts and curates Brighton’s premier singer-songwriter night Folklore, a packed one-in-one-out monthly event that brings together the most crucial and current acoustic and folk acts from across the country, in fact, it’s got such a reputation that acts such as Gabrielle Aplin, Hudson Taylor and Amber Run have all dropped by to play secret impromptu shows in the last year. Folklore has also recently expanded into a boutique record label in its own right and will be releasing a limited edition physical version of ‘After the Storm’.
