Jackson Boone is a songwriter who quietly emerged from the misty magic of Portland, Oregon in late 2013. He made his first solo album Starlit in the basement of a green house in NE Portland, with the help of producer Riley Geare (Unknown Mortal Orchestra), bassist Randy Bemrose (Radiation City), Violinist Patti King (Radiation City), and a few close friends. Immediately after Starlit’s release in September 2014, Boone, his five piece live band (featuring members of Coma Serfs and Sinless), Bemrose, and Geare, packed up their stuff and headed to the beach, where they spent two weeks tracking a new record, Natural Changes. The group lived and recorded in his Grandfather’s orange-mod beach house, playing in front of huge ocean-front glass windows, consuming copious homemade tacos provided by videographer Ryan “Taco” Bell in the process. The finished record maintains Boone and Geare’s tendency towards the psychedelic, this time marrying it with a floating feeling of indescribable catharsis.
