The next Piano Man - Jackson Tyler Hunt

Wow. Once I saw Jackson Hunt's face on his site ( all I could think of was, "He wants to be Billy Joel?" A lover of the piano, Mr. Hunt has his own definition of what pop music is. He has the "stuff" to go the boy band route, though. But his bio states that he wants to follow in the footsteps of past piano greats like Elton John and Billy Joel, aka Piano Man. Currently, in his young career, he sounds more like Boys like Girls.

I can totally see him sing, "Throw it away, forget yesterday, we'll make the great escape!!"

This Missouri native is on the Reverbnation website, which supports indie music, musicians, venues, etc all in the name of music. It's also the only website (meaning no Youtube!) that has his songs available. Browse around it when you get a chance...after listening to Jackson's song, of course. His song, "Dance, Dance" is currently #3 on their chart! I'm excited to see what else he has in store for us.

Fortunately, for me, Jackson will be performing in NYC this week! He is scheduled to perform on April 13, at 11 PM at Banjo Jim's (700 9th Street, NY, NY). I'll have to go check it out. More reviews and pictures to come. Hope to see some of y'all there!


  1. Shirl, Thanks for taking the time to blog about my silly little set. Hope you enjoyed the show. Yes, i know that the music to this date seems to pigeon hole my music but i can only hope to surprise you on the debut album "the verge" releasing fall 2011! Also there is a youtube site lol

  2. Hi, Jackson! It's great to hear from you! Unfortunately, if you see the next next post, "Fail..." you'll know why I missed it =(
