Shitty Interview No.63
The first & last time I saw Jarrad Lee Jackson in the flesh, Sebastien & I were visiting Adelaide (Australia) & were not pre-warned about how fucked up the weed makes you there. I will never forget our dinner with Jarrad, his awesome artist girlfriend Lisa King, & a bunch of their homies.
We took a quick weed break outside of the super fancy & yummy Thai place we were eating at. After that, the rest of the packed restaurant had to listen to my high pitched uncontrollable laughter as Lisa (or was it Jarrad?) ate just one piece of broccoli over what felt like hours! You can see why that was so funny, yeah?
Jarrad started composing for touring punk bands in his teens & has also toured the world as a drummer for Epitaph records, California. He put his own multifaceted spin on pop when he started making solo bedroom recordings in LA as WORLD WILD.
A born crooner with a nostalgic yet bittersweet ’80s tone to his music, Jarrad made demos that soon caught the attention of Mark Gillespie (Calvin Harris mgmt) who pushed Jarrad towards his first release in 2015, ‘Caribbean Gold’. Jarrad spent majority of 2015 touring, writing his second release due to be out late this year.
