Watch below video of Jackson Mathod new single Dumb People:
The 28-year old trumpet player studied Jazz at Guildhall, where he developed his undeniable skills on the instrument and sensibility for songwriting. However, never feeling fully embedded in the jazz world, he quickly went onto the session musician circuit, playing for high profile artists such as Stormzy or Jordan Rakei.
A performer at heart, he started his own function band in parallel, with the role of frontman to fulfil his long love for singing. “I’m really trying to just follow where my subconscious is taking me musically. I guess this explains why there's so much diversity in my music".
During lockdown, he performed mini-concerts outside his flat, where people would come and sit down on their own chairs with a beer or glass of wine from home or the pub!
