Recently we had the chance to chat with prep-school student turned pop star Jackson Harris! While Jackson's high school experience may have resembled the world of Gossip Girl, everything changed when he decided to pursue music!
Check out our convo! The cutie dishes on school, music, and the holidays:
M: Can you tell us how you got started in the industry? Jackson: I was born and raised in New York City, went to one of those very poorly described private schools from Gossip Girl. Once college came around, people were saying you should go here, you should go here and Ivy League schools and this that and your grades, and for me it was always about music and I ended up getting into a few schools, but decided to just not go and thankfully, my mom didn't flip out too much about that and (I) started producing music, writing my own music, and slowly got my manager now that I work with and we've just been building on that and been able to write and record and produce my own music on my own label and it's been really really neat and growing up in New York City has definitely lent itself to that.
M: We saw your video for "All I Want for Christmas Is You"! (Check out the vid here) is it true you shot it in your local toy store? J: Yeah, we shot it in the toy store, which was a lot of fun, distracting, but a lot of fun. And yeah, it's a big song, so I kind of wanted to do my own fun little take on it and we had fun.
M: What are some of your favorite things about the holidays? J: The food. I like the shops and the window dressings and all that stuff in New York City. My favorite thing about the holidays is really not even during the holidays, it's the Thanksgiving Day Parade, like that's my favorite day. It's the Thanksgiving Day Parade and then the dog show right afterwards is always like my favorite thing to do on any holiday, so that's probably number one. Yeah, New Year's is pretty awesome.
