Jackson Dyer is a Berlin based Australian singer-songwriter and producer. He arrived in Berlin in 2013 and started by playing on the streets, before going on to perform live, sharing the stage with the likes of Hozier, Hiatus Kaiyote and Alice PhoebeLou. He has also played a series of festival and toured Europe extensively in support of Mighty Oaks and a recent a large European tour in support of Irish Indie act Talos.
Noisey Germany said about him: “With his voice alone, he could start a fire…”
After independently releasing three EPs, Jackson Dyer decided to returned to Australia to began the creation of his debut album. So he came back to an isolated coastal town in northern NSW to stay focus on it.
His new album is inspired by Australian’s landscapes and the awe-inspiring ocean that surrounded him as the album developed. Tittled Inlet, it’s due to be released on November 15 featuring an album releases show in Berlin.
In the meantime, Jackson has released on October 25 his final single taken from his debut album. Titled “The Front”, it feature a music video shot in Berlin and directed by Adam Sait.
It’s a heartfelt and emotive tracks which take you to deep Australia. This Folk song is just composed of Jackson impressive and emotional voice, guitar and violin.
To conclude, I share Jackson’s words about the song:
“In the tropical North of Australia, around where my brother lives, there are an abundance of beautiful waterfalls that you can trek up to. I wrote ‘The Font’ after one particularly beautiful bush walk that cut through dense jungle and finished at the feet of a gushing waterfall.
Personally, I find nature to be very calming and spiritual, and in ‘The Font’, I lyrically compare swimming in the fresh water to being baptised in a natural “baptismal font”. Without formal religion in my life, I find a lot of meaning in the wonder of nature and I wrote this song almost as a gospel hymn, dedicated to unrivaled beauty of the Natural World”.
