“You could be sitting in your Camry, stuck on the Western Ring Road, but pop Bill Jackson’s latest into the CD player and you could be cruising the open road with nothing but time and nowhere particular to be.”


Jeff Glorfel, Melbourne Age

“Genuine ground breaking roots influenced music that cuts across borders.”

Welcome to Bill Jackson Music.com

Bill Jackson is not your typical Aussie folkie. He could be from Austin or Charlottesville or Nashville. He writes songs which transcend place and time and while folk in basis, step beyond. That is partially due to partner in crime Peter Fidler, who ranks right up there with Pat Wictor and Randy Kohrs and a handful of others on my best-of list for resonator guitar and dobro. Jackson and Fidler have this symbiotic relationship not unlike that of Kevin Welch and Fats Kaplin, each providing the other with the wherewithal to make good music better. Jackson and Welch contstruct a building. Fidler and Kaplin lay down finishing touches.

Bill’s latest release Jerilderie was recorded live in early 2011 at Silvertone Recording Service in Nashville, TN with award winning instrumentalist Pete Fidler, Sergio Webb, Daniel Seymour and Justin Amaral.
