Jackson Howard’s ‘Don’t Act’ is the best friend you wanted today. With glimmering piano driven soft-rock goodness, the single levitates you to another cloud of expectations and warmth.
In the best vibe traditions of Barry Manilow, Neil Diamond and Elton John, the easy listening CV of Jackson Howard is undeniably attractive and decadent. ‘Don’t Act’ perfectly procures the feelings of a heart, in a lonesome desire, pulled into many facets of life and its many undertones. And in that manifestation, Jackson’s interpretation shines with vigor, and pulls the listener in entirely.
It’s what the genre does, to great effect, and ‘Don’t Act’ is that bitter-sweetness you’d wanted to feel better.
Hear more of JH’s goodness in his LP ‘New Day Begun’.
