Just another quick Happy New Year shout out! I
hope you had a chance to watch my new music video for my single Wildflower.
If you haven’t, click here to watch … and even if you have, please
watch again and share it with your friends. Those views, comments and likes
on YouTube mean the world to an artist trying to find their way in this business.
I am down for supporting other artists in the same way so if you are a musician
let me know what you are working on!
I had the great opportunity to perform a duet with Aaron Childree on his upcoming CD. The song, Love is
Contagious, releases at midnight tonight and his CD on January 28, so please watch
both our Facebook pages for updates and announcements. I also was recently
featured on a song recorded by the Crazy Carls, and will let you know details when that
been given the amazing opportunity to open a show for “internet sensation”
and former American Idol contestant Shaun Canon at his Live for Music tour show in Lake Mary, FL on January
15 so please come support if you are in Central Florida.
As a quick update on the
personal side, I have returned to classes on the Florida Atlantic University campus
after doing on-line classes last semester and I am so happy to be back in beautiful
Boca Raton, Florida! I have decided to major in Creative Writing with a minor
in Commercial Music since these are things that will help support Plan A (music
career) as well as Plan B (I don’t want to talk about Plan B, focusing on
Plan A, lol). Look for me performing some more shows in South Florida and
wherever opportunity and luck will take me!
This is starting out to be a great year for me musicially,
so if you want to follow my journey, be sure to check out my website, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube to keep up and stay connected!

under her belt and a new single out as well. Her relentless schedule of live performances
show her determination and willingness to do whatever it takes to succeed. Her new
single “Wildflower” showcases just how far she has come in a short time
with her music. I had a few questions for the upcoming artist which she graciously

brightest is Orlando native (and Florida Atlantic University student) Carly Jo Jackson.
Jackson’s passion for music and enthusiasm for life really shows through as
she creates musical brilliancy with her acoustic guitar — which will win your
heart in a second."

|"Carly Jo Jackson is a new indie artist from Florida with a
dream to achieve and a message to share. Just a young woman, Carly is wise behind
her years. The self pro-claimed acoustic pop songstress just released her first
CD, World at My Feet which is full of songs based on her real experiences with
life, loss, and love. Often, people compare her to Colbie Caillat or Taylor Swift,
but she has her own style with a more bluesy sound to add to the mix. When she’s
not singing, writing great music, or jamming on her guitar, she is a student at
Florida Atlantic University. Carly is above the pressure of trying to sound, look,
or be a certain way in the music industry; she is making her own lane creating music
that she loves and really connect with. Carly is pure talent."
