It was an honor and pleasure hosting Amir Jackson in #TanVan for an acoustic set of 4 songs along with in-depth interview questions with the purveyor of one of Ogden's most prolific non-profits, Nurture the Creative Mind.
Jackson touched on living an authentic life as an artist, how listening to Tracy Chapman growing up wasn't cool and would get you beat up because real New York cats listened to hip hop. Jackson also informed us he's bought a lot of albums at Ogden's Lavender Vinyl on Historic 25th Street. He enjoys flipping though albums to find a gem and prefers soul, blues, and rock genres.
Running a nonprofit as a full time job is tough work, but Jackson informed us that with his particular job, the students help nurture and inspire him.
Where will Ogden's art scene be in 5 years? Amir Jackson has a great answer! That and more on this 4 song acoustic set of #VanSessions with the multi-talented, Amir Jackson
