Willie Jackson is a Blues singer and song writer raised in Ga. The youngest child of the late Rev.Willie Jackson and Annie Pearl Jackson. Willie Jr was raised in the church and attended three times per week.and as a teenager was providing music and anything that was needed during services,even preaching.As a child a strong work ethic was instilled as Willie was working as a shoe shine boy and sweeping the Barber shop at the age of seven years old. Willie continued to work in the Ga area in a chemical plant as well as the Rail road until an on the job accident rendered him unable to complete the task. Willie had always sang Gospel Blues R&B and some country songs and wrote his own songs as well. Now disabled Willie started going out to open mics and singing a song or two when a band would call him up. Without intending to start a band, other musicians wanted to join in and that's when and how the Blues band started. Although Willie had home recorded music to some of his original songs, the goal was to get in the studio and record with an engineer. In 2017 Willie released his E P titled Chosen By The Blues which got airplay in different cities and countries with the assistance of publicist Frank Roszak. Willie now performs in the Ga and South Carolina area at Blues festivals and restaurants as well as the river cruises in Savannah Ga.
