An Evening with Clare Bowen and Jonathan Jackson—Songs and Stories from Music City - SPECIAL EVENT 07/12/24

CLARE BOWEN :

Before landing the iconic role of Scarlett O'Connor on the ABC/CMT/HULU TV series NASHVILLE,

and launching her career as a singer/songwriter, Clare Bowen was growing up in rural Australia. Bowen heard her first broadcast of the Grand Ole Opry on the wireless in her grandad’s kitchen and soon after, her classical vocal coach paused one of their lessons to comment on the "country lilt" that had naturally crept into Bowen's voice. It would be another decade before she'd duet with heavyweights like Zac Brown and Vince Gill, recording songs with GRAMMY-winning producers like T-Bone Burnett and Buddy Miller who became her mentors. She released an eponymous album and performed before sold-out crowds in the US, UK, Germany and Australia. She also earned a coveted spot on Sugarland’s “Still The Same” tour and toured live with the Nashville cast, selling out London’s O2 Arena.

Alongside the spotlight, Clare is no stranger to the darker more frightening side of the human experience. A pediatric cancer survivor, she was given just two weeks to live upon receiving a shocking cancer diagnosis at age four. With the strength of her family behind her, she survived a grueling chemotherapy regimen and is now known around the world as a beautiful ray of sunshine who leads with her heart, able to communicate and translate emotions whether on stage or on screen.


Now half of the duo known as BOWEN * YOUNG, she and her husband, Brandon Robert Young are releasing music that masterfully delves into the depths of ferocious love, heartbreaking loss and steadfast hope. They have dubbed the music “Cinematic Americana”, and their debut album, “Us”, was released in May 2024 and available everywhere.


JONATHAN JACKSON :

Jonathan Jackson is a multi-dimensional artist: a musician, actor, author, and filmmaker.

Jonathan’s life in the arts began as an actor at the age of eleven on General Hospital, where his performances garnered him five EMMY Awards. After many years working in feature films such as Tuck Everlasting and Insomnia, he played Avery Barkly in the renowned drama, Nashville, for six seasons.

Along with international tours with the Nashville Cast, he is the lead singer and songwriter for the band Jonathan Jackson + Enation. Their most recent album, “Ultraviolet Empire” was released in July of 2022.

As an author, his current works include, Book of Solace and Madness, The Harrowing of Hell and The Mystery of Art, which has been translated into Greek, Romanian and Russian. Jonathan was recently named Associate Dean and Primary Lecturer at Theoria School of Filmmaking in Franklin TN.

Over the course of three decades in the Hollywood, his journey as an artist, performer and public speaker has taken him to many places around the world, including the U.K., Ireland, Italy, Romania, Russia, Canada and Greece. He currently resides in Tennessee with his wife Elisa and their three children
