Biography

Judi Jackson is a multi-talented actor and jazz vocalist from Roanoke, Virginia USA born in 1993.

At the age of 14 Judi Jackson was fortunate enough to meet Wynton Marsalis at the Jefferson Centre performance hall after a show. He sent her a box of music the following Christmas that became the seed of inspiration for her development as a jazz vocalist. She began listening to and studying the sounds of Blossom Dearie, Billie Holliday, Sarah Vaughan, Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald, and Mahalia Jackson, amongst many other greats. She continued studying over the next several years and started gaining more experience as a performer by opening for acts such as Mavis Staples. Shortly thereafter she released her first album, “Crashing down” with Judi and the Giants, on the Music Lab’s label. Jackson has shared the stage with Snarky Puppy, and recorded her original piece, “Only Love”, last spring with the Grammy award winning group.
