“Five Minutes With” Calgary Pop-Rock Musician Jackson Reed

Born and raised in Calgary, Jackson Reed became interested in music at 10 when he discovered The Beatles. Although he didn’t get serious about pursuing music as a career until he was about 15 and 16, he signed with a manager at 18 and has been getting better opportunities ever since. This May he will be going on tour in the US. Ultimately his goal is to bring the commercial, classic style of rock and roll back into the forefront of pop music.
