Jackson is completing the finishing touches on his second album. It will be a reflective R&B album Jackson has written and is producing.

JacksonThatcher_ThePath_Cover300dpiThe acoustic guitar solo album, The Path, features 11 songs written and performed by Jackson Thatcher. The album has been well received by fellow musicians and fans alike. It’s a mixture of guitar greats, Tommy Emmanuel, Pete Huttlinger, and Andy McKee, rolled together with Jackson’s pop sensibilities and emotive writing.

In early January 2012, Jackson’s Dad said, “Hey, we need to sit down and set some goals for you for this year.” Jackson replied, “I’ve already set my goals. I want to record an acoustic album this year.” At age 13, Jackson wrote and recorded his first album.

“Recording an album sounds easy at first, but you have to write and arrange the songs. Nine songs are written now. (2 to go). I have great mentors (Mike Bauer and Pete Huttlinger). Then you need a better guitar than a $200 guitar. Just got a Martin guitar that is worth being recorded. So far, so good. I need your help to get past the next hurdles of recording and mixing. There are expenses in pressing CDs too. You’ve heard a taste of my music in the Kickstarter video. Help me make this project happen. I’m willing to work hard and deliver you the prize packages promised. My project is called The Path. Please help me on this path of recording my first album.” —Jackson Thatcher

The album release party was at Puckett’s Nashville on February 19, 2013. The project was successfully funded on Kickstarter on October 15, 2012.


His debut CD, The Path, is a beautifully composed and performed project. The Path showcases his acoustic guitar style which has a wonderful blend of both technical prowess and heart with a writing style that’s both groovy and optimistic.

You know, in a day and a age when everybody gets a trophy for just showing up… I’m sorry man, we grew up in the 80’s around David Foster, Michael Landau, Steve Lukather, Tim Pierce, and I’m spoiled. I’m sorry, there’s a lot of great talent out there these days, but it just drives me crazy when people say, ‘This is a genius, this is so great and everything,’ but man, Jackson. He’s 13? He deserves it man, because… yeh, from the first notes I heard him play, like what two years ago or a year ago… Jackson, I hope you don’t take this the wrong way, but you’re a freak of nature. And I say that with all due respect. But it’s true man, I just can’t wait to hear what this guy keeps coming up with.
