Robin Jackson has told fantastic cabaret tales with Vagabond Opera and blasted out the jams with The March Fourth Marching Band and The Everyone Orchestra when not giving up the funk, teaching voice workshops, or belting out epic arrangements of rock favorites in a myriad of other projects and obsessions. With a degree in ethnomusicology and an unflagging musical curiosity, Jackson has lived and busked around the world, from an intentional beach community in New Zealand to the streets of Europe. He is a master of a myriad of instruments, from saxophone to mbira and played with everyone from Gogol Bordello to Amanda Palmer to The Decembrists. An award‐winning songwriter, teacher, activist, and spirited impresario, Jackson has built on his colorful, bohemian upbringing and dedicated himself to creating and supporting music around Portland, Or where he lives on an urban farm with his cat and a circus.Robin draws upon the moody spirit of his rain‐soaked, Portland, OR home to create an eclectic brew of dreamy, vintage cinematic folk‐pop in his debut album Dust Diaries (release: June, 2012).
