Joshua Jackson

Make sure you come out to see the local singer-songwriter Joshua Aubrey Jackson. Sometimes the most poetic way to tell a story is straightforward and without embellishments. Songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Joshua Aubrey Jackson frankly relays his experiences with grief, heartbreak and—ultimately—forgiveness in a way that’s both conversational and confessional. Jackson releases music under the moniker Make Sure, and is a signed artist with Tooth & Nail Records. Bridging intimate dream-pop and expansive folk-rock, Jackson’s music is like getting a hug from a close friend after baring your soul to them. It captures the liberating feeling of truly knowing that someone else has walked down the same road of disappointment, awkwardness and redemption. “Talking about vague pain isn’t helpful,” Jackson says. “It’s your actual story that gives people hope.” Joshua Aubrey Jackson lives in Auburn, Alabama where he is almost always out on a run or making music.
