Woody Jackson is one of the cult composers of the Los Angeles new scene. His very special rereadings of west and noir genres have been integral parts of the resounding success of two videogames such as Red Dead Redemption and LA Noire that sold more than 10 millions copies.
In great demand for soundtracks as for videogames as for full lenght movies and even for advertising jingles, Woody Jackson embodies at his best the figure of the modern composer, able to lend his own art and his inspiration to several "means", keeping always and in any case a very high level of quality. Because of his being inspired by a classical type of soundtrack, from John Barry to Morricone, from Henry Mancini
to Bernstein, he has always been considered as a "contemporary classic".
Besides his productions, Jackson collaborated in albums of great musicians such as Beck, Badly Drawn Boy, David
Johnston, Jon Hopkins, Money Mark, Friends
of Dean Martinez, Green On Red.
