New World Artists, Exclusive Booking Agents for JXN
JXN (pronounced Jackson) has released his debut single Solitude. Born Jackson Brazier, he’s made a name for himself amassing more than a million followers across YouTube and Instagram but now the 25 year old is embarking on his most important venture yet, as one of Australia’s most promising new artists. Solitude is an impossibly accomplished introduction that defines who JXN is an artist. It’s a slick, late night jam blending modern RnB influences with pop sensibilities inspired in part by DIY Soundcloud artists who have crossed over into the mainstream.
Music has always been the end goal for Brazier and the JXN project is the result of a number of years working towards it. Music sound tracked his childhood as he grew up in Victoria’s Yarra Valley. At 13, JXN taught himself how to play guitar through YouTube tutorials long before he would find himself on the platform playing for thousands. At 17, he’d saved up enough money to buy himself a Maton guitar and later set up his own DIY home studio so that he could upload covers online.
The debut is a triumphant moment for Brazier as it comes after years of chipping away at a music career both online and in his studio. It’s a breakup song that taps into a universal emotion which is part of the reason why he decided it was the perfect song to kick-off his career as JXN.
