Jackson Reed is a multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter from Sault Ste Marie, Ontario. His music mixes a variety of genres such as rock, pop and folk, with a jazz influence recently coming to the fore. In 2016, he recorded a four song EP called “The November Gales” with collaborator Jonas Bonnetta, which went on to win the 2017 Northern Ontario Music Award for Best Album. In 2017, he returned to Bonnetta’s home studio to make “Dark Areas of Description”, a seven track release which featured artwork from Kyle Field and was followed by a cross-Canada tour. Dark Areas of Description, in comparison to Reed’s previous album The November Gales, is a journey through unchartered waters while simultaneously being true to his folk roots.
A classically trained musician with a penchant for the punk music. Sev has played in numerous bands, on keyboards, drums and voice. Tulpa, with John Bottomley, holds a special place and so do the rock punkers, Throbbin’ Hoods. Sneaking up on 40 years of experience in a variety of mediums, Sev Micron engineers Muzicare Productions and has produced a good number of indie artists. Songwriting is another of Sev’s many and considerable talents.
And it wouldn’t be right to not mention that Sev loves animals, dogs especially (hi Bella), and that cooking is a forte! Peace and love are big fans, too.
