Carly Jo Jackson is a south Florida-based indie/acoustic-pop artist with a soulful vocal tone that is as infectious as her stage presence. She delivers energy and passion in every performance including her 2014 appearance on NBC’s America’s Got Talent where she was praised by the celebrity judges for her charisma and captivating voice. At the 2017 Florida Music Festival, blogger Rara’s Farm described her performance as show-stealing and “an invigorating showcase that left the Orlando crowd thirsting for more.” Carly Jo’s passion for music started early as a vocalist, but grew wings when she received a guitar for her 16th birthday and began writing songs and performing in cafes in her hometown of Orlando. Writing with a maturity well beyond her years, she recorded her first EP at just 17. While in college she released her award-winning coming-of-age single “Wildflower”. Carly Jo continues to grow as a songwriter and to hone her magnetic stage presence as a full-time performing artist.
Her music has been licensed in small films and TV commercials including the department store Belks’ national TV commercial in 2015 where she also makes an onscreen appearance. She is currently endorsed by Luna Guitars and Samson Technologies. “Florida is home to many superstars, but one that shines the brightest is Orlando native… 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.” Scott Bryant, WordPress in “8 Women Musicians You’ve Never Heard Of…But Should!”
