NAACP award winning actress and singer/songwriter Talia Jackson (Netflix’s “Family Reunion”) releases HIDDEN, her first song entirely written by her about the freedom she feels from being free from a toxic relationship and needing no one but herself. During the pandemic, with filming on hold, Talia began writing all of her own music as a solo songwriter and will be releasing a song each month through the end of the year.
Talia stars alongside Loretta Devine as Tia Mowry-Hardict’s character’s oldest daughter, ‘Jade McKellan,’ in Netflix’s multi-camera comedy “Family Reunion” from veteran showrunner Meg DeLoatch (“Family Matters”). Originally hailing from Wisconsin, Talia moved to Santa Barbara at the age of seven to begin pursuing her twin passions of acting and singing. When she's not in front of the camera or in the studio recording new music, Talia loves songwriting with her brother actor/singer/songwriter Armani Jackson (Netflix's Little Boxes/TBS CHAD) and lending her voice to mental illness awareness and Global Lyme Alliance.
Talia's latest single "YOU" is a masterful fusion of alternative R&B and pop styles that features passionate vocals, rhythmic pop melodies, and soul-bearing lyrics that tell the story about the heartbreak and conflicting emotions that are experienced in an unpredictable, "hot and cold" love relationship.
Talia Jackson is a prolific electro pop singer/songwriter, drawing influence from SZA, Jhene Aiko and Lana Del Ray. Her empowering music discusses important themes such as embracing her identity as a biracial woman, overcoming mental health issues including suicidal thoughts, self-harm, anxiety disorders and not allowing external influences to dictate who she is at her core. Her music has recently been profiled by the likes of Teen Vogue, V Magazine, Earmilk, among others. Talia uses music as a therapeutic outlet to help her through the past and present adversities she faces, especially navigating her personal mental health struggles and she hopes others will find solace in it as well.
