Jackson Waters is also garnering media raves and making new fans every step of the way. Here’s what people are saying:
“The group has a definite uniqueness and originality which, in itself, is an achievement. But Jackson Waters also has great songs that slide comfortably across well- established genre demarcation lines- CCM Magazine “Ones To Watch” March issue
“…it shouldn’t be long before Jackson Waters is as much a part of the fabric of contemporary Christian music scene—and even beyond, as Switchfoot and Jars of Clay” – Aspiring Retail
Jesusfreakhideout.com ranked Come Undone as #21 on their Top 25 picks for hot 2007 albums as well as saying, “The band's debut Come Undone blends radio-friendly pop/rock with a southern flavor and the occasional stroke of genius to craft a debut worth taking notice of …”
“Jackson Waters is a band that started in our area, so we've known they were the ‘real deal’ for years, but this first single on Word is amazing- it sounds great on the radio and these guys are so ready for a national platform to share from. They will be big.” --Bob Thornton, KXOJ Tulsa
“Jackson Waters' Come Undone delivers what few bands do these days... A soundtrack to live life with. I can probably give you all the clichés of how Jackson Waters kills it with unbelievable guitar jangles, melodies that haunt me, a storyline drive with staying-power in my iPod ‘postmodern-rock’ playlist, and all the other discriminations that explains why I'll never be as cool as they sound and why their music makes me feel good. But - my little nephew probably described it better when he told me ‘this album rocks my face off.” --Matt Peterson, GM, Musichristian.com and SkyRoo.com
