D.D. Jackson

I am a two-time Emmy Award-winning composer, and Juno Award-winning jazz pianist and educator. As a composer, I specialize in writing, arranging, and producing memorable, custom-made music for t.v., film & other media. I consider myself an "artistic problem solver": I strive to get to the essential conceptual truth of what the client is looking for - and to express it in a creative and supportive way.

(feature film directed by Alexander Baack, music by D.D. Jackson)


A romantic comedy feature for which I wrote and performed the underscore as well as the music for the songs (in collaboration with lyricist/director/co-writer Alexander Baack) [more info on the film, including where to stream or download it, available here]. I recently returned from the film's successful premiere at the 2018 Cinequest Film & VR Film Festival in San Jose, CA where we were excited that it received the "Audience Award" for Best Comedy. Here's a teaser trailer featuring some of my original music from the film:



Here's a scene from the film featuring my scoring. It begins with the tail end of a song for which I wrote music with lyricist/director Alexander Baack (performed by Paul Guyet), and then segues into a "mirror" scene featuring my solo piano composition (and playing):



And here's a video made by the cast/crew of the film for Cinequest featuring all my own music (with the exception of the song at the very beginning and end we used for the film's end credits):
