Steven Jackson
My name is Steven Jackson I am a Singer/Songwriter from Kingston, Ontario, Canada.I have been writing songs for many years and I view the process as a journey. The beauty of songwriting is you never know where it is going to take you. Many roads become explored within the labyrinth of your mind and many emotions are uncovered.

Songwriting is very personal, for me it creates a reason for being on this crazy world; when many things in life don't make sense, writing songs does make sense !.

In terms of my music, I consider the music and lyrics to be equally important. I strive to write lyrics that are relevant to my existence. The words are a vehicle to reach out and touch people, and maybe make you think a little, after all lyric writing is in my opinion, a form of Poetry......."Up above my head there is blue sky, below my feet there is dark, somewhere in the middle there is me, lost in thought".

Please give my music a listen, I think you'll like it.

GOODBYE (To You My Friend) : Music and Lyrics by Steven Jackson

Goodbye to you my friend
I can clearly see the end
There's been laughter
There's been pain
But I would do it all again
Goodbye to you, goodbye

Goodbye to a world so blue
It saddens me what we've done to you
I hear you crying in your pain
I'd like to take it all away
Goodbye to you, goodbye

Goodbye I will close my eyes
Goodbye please do not cry
Don't be sad I'm leaving you
It's the only thing to do
Goodbye to you, goodbye

Goodbye to you my friend
This is feeling like the end
There's been laughter
There's been pain
But I would do it all again
Goodbye to you, goodbye.

Loren Dean

I like the authentic feel of this music, wild and rolling, and wet. The bass wobbles like an old ship. Music should take us to a place, it's the nobel tradition of Sea Ballad. All I wanted was a mug of grog to complete the effect. FIVE
