A native New Yorker with ties to Virginia Beach, Chauncy Jackson has been blazing trails in the entertainment business since he was just sixteen years old. Dabbling in everything from graphic design and magazine publishing to songwriting and management, Jackson has honed his very unique skillset with years of experience both as an executive and an entrepreneur with such respected ventures as Groovevolt.com and Vainstyle Magazine. Now as the President of his own label, Siri Music Group (currently distributed by Universal), Jackson successfully maintains the balance of creative and executive, managing various artists careers, as well as still continuing to be talented songwriter.
Over the course of his many years in the business, Jackson has had an award-winning music television program, music magazine and worked on some very impressive music projects via BMG’s Strategic Marketing Team including releases from Whitney Houston, Ciara, Aretha Franklin, TLC, Toni Braxton, Deborah Cox, Annie Lennox, Avril Lavigne, Outkast, Pink, and Usher. Having a first-hand account of both the successes and failures involved in each one of these projects has allowed Jackson the opportunity to continue to evolve and grow within the business, making his experience invaluable.
As a songwriter, Jackson is one half of songwriting duo Jackson/Croft (with Kim Croft), having written for or worked with work with some of music’s biggest artists, producers and A&R reps including: Jessica Simpson, Tamia, Katherine McPhee, S. Aurelis (Ashanti, Danity Kane, Day 26), Shea Taylor (Ne-Yo), Troy Oliver (Jennifer Lopez), Troy Taylor (Trey Songz), MDL (Justin Bieber), T-Minus (Drake), Brian Kennedy (Kelly Clarkson), The Chemistri (Wynter Gordon) Deborah Cox etc.
As a music industry veteran, Chauncy Jackson is always on the pulse of “what’s next.” Whether it be with musical sounds, streaming, digital, social media, radio or simply just a feeling, Jackson’s ear, mindset and business savvy is always relevant, and uniquely timeless. He is currently working on debut albums from Siri Music Group artists, along with several other ventures and projects with other major labels and their recording artists.
