Stevi Marie & Jackson Road is an amalgam of classic and contemporary country with rock influences, and strong musicianship, focused on making an electric performance each and every time. The band features skilled songwriting and strong vocals from lead singer Stevi Marie. Each member of the band is classically trained and schooled, but also road tested over thousands of miles. Collectively, they draw influences ranging from Buck Owens to Elvis Costello to Emmylou Harris and many more. Stevi herself plays three instruments (trumpet, guitar, & bass) as well as singing and writing songs. From her humble beginnings in a small logging community, she has risen to become one of the Northwest's most active performers.
Stevi Marie & her band Jackson Road, recently released their first group effort titled, "Second Sight", on January 1, 2008. The cd was co-produced and arranged by Miss Marie and bandmate and bass player Greg Jackson. Additional arrangements were contributed by pianist of the group, Matt Burnett. The cd is a testament to the depth of songwriting and musicianship that the band is comprised of. "Second Sight" takes the listener on a journey through the hearts of small town America. There is a heart broken quality to Stevi's voice that is true and passionate. The album is a beautiful picture of the Americana movement and the evolving world of country music. The production is clean and the vocal duets by Stevi and Greg Jackson are sweet, simple, and real. The cd has been compared to the likes of legendary Gram Parsons.
