About Seth Jackson
Songwriter Seth Jackson wrote his first song in 1983, while studying for his MBA degree at the Wharton School. The second song he ever wrote, called "The Atomic Bop", received airplay on WAAF-FM in the Boston area. The song caught the ear of the local music press, prompting The Beat Magazine to write, "Be on the Seth Jackson alert..." Several years later, Seth left the corporate world to study at the Grove School of Music in Los Angeles, where he earned a diploma in Songwriting.
An ASCAP member, Seth is NSAI Regional Workshop Coordinator for the Los Angeles/Pasadena area. Seth writes in a variety of styles including country, rock, pop, blues, and novelty songs. Seth promotes his catalog through certain publishers in Nashville and LA and also through his own publishing company, Row Town Music.
In June of 2008, Seth received a Presidential invitation to the White House because of his song, "Pfc. Ross A. McGinnis", a tribute to an Iraq war hero. The soldier was eventually awarded a Medal of Honor, and the song was performed at a reception following the award ceremony.
