His 2008 release “Steel & Bone” was awarded Folk Alliance Australia, Radio Presenters Album of the Year in 2008 and he was invited to tour the US alt country hotspots later that same year with his Acoustic Orchestra (Peter Fidler / Ruth Hazleton). Many of his songs are co-written with his brother Ross and have been described as engaging, plainspoken and articulate – songs about Hank, Morphine, High Country Lovers and our shared common experiences. Jackson was also invited back to showcase at the International Folk Alliance Convention in Memphis (Feb 2010) and to play gigs at selected venues like The Bluebird Cafe in Nashville. Peter and Bill recorded an EP The Nashville Sessionl during this trip live in the studio.
