Brickwall Jackson has been playing its own uncompromising brand of original music since 2012. Their first album, "Just Life", set the course for the musical direction songwriter and band leader Johnny Hudak had charted; an unflinching look at life, love and family relationships that describe the human condition.
The release of their second album, "Beautiful Mystery", was a collection of 11 sharply focused, vivid songs that carry on the storytelling tradition; as much richly told narratives as they are crisp musical numbers.
When lead vocalist Suzie "MoJo" Johnson, bassist Chuck Harrell, drummer Rod "Sticks" Hicks and keyboardist Sam Nixon team with Hudak's brisk, insistent acoustic and rock-tinged electric numbers the result is a powerful and innovative blend of uniquely Americana rock music.
"Richmond is in dire need of Americana and country music that matters and actually turns ears. With Brickwall Jackson, this is happening. The quintet delivers the songs that embody our lives. Work, family, play, love, stress and life itself is all foreshadowed through the deep arrangements of Hudak's songwriting and through Brickwall Jackson's marvelous accord."
