Childhood And Education
Jade Jackson's birthplace is Santa Margarita, California, and she was born on February 10, 1992. It was a small town 1o mi (160 km) from San Luis Obispo with a tiny population. Jackson's parents run a restaurant in the town, and as a teenager, Jade spent many nights working at the family restaurant. She grew up with two siblings, brother Cheynn and sister Audrey. Interestingly, she shared a room with her siblings until she was 12 years old.
Though her parents worked hard to run the restaurant, they also had a love for music. They had an extensive collection of records which ranged from classic country artists like Townes Van Zandt, Hank Williams, and Johnny Cash to alternative rock such as The Cure, The Smiths, and Echo and the Bunnymen. Jade Jackson and her siblings were not allowed to watch television, nor did they have access to the internet. So they often listened to these records as they were their primary source of entertainment. This music left a long-lasting impression on her.
At the age of 13, Jade Jackson was allowed to see a concert without her folks for the first time. She traveled to San Luis Obispo to see the punk band Social Distortion. This experience inspired her to take up songwriting. She continued writing, and by the time she was out of high school, she had completed nearly 300 songs. Meanwhile, she had begun performing once a week at a local cafe. She has attended the California Institute of the Arts.
However, the singer always didn't have a smooth life. She suffered a severe accident when she was 20 years old and broke her back. While recovering, she lost all hope of walking again as it was difficult for her to get up. However, she started to walk again but became heavily dependent on painkillers. However, she focused on her career and took the cold turkey approach to quit the medication one day.
