FREDDIE JACKSON


BIO: "I really feel like I've gone to a new level with this album," Freddie Jackson says of For You, his first new album in five years and his first for eOne Music. "I feel like I'm starting all over again, and I feel like some good things are happening for me." For You embodies all of the qualities that have made Freddie Jackson one of contemporary R&B's most beloved icons. In a recording career that spans more than a quarter-century, the New York-bred vocalist has set a much-emulated standard for sophisticated, romantic balladry, spotlighting a smoothly expressive voice that's one of the most recognizable in popular music. Although he's already produced a large and influential body of music, For You makes it clear that Jackson is currently creating some of his most compelling music to date. The new album maintains the artist's established style, while simultaneously expanding into exciting new musical territory. On such heart-touching new tunes as "I Don't Wanna Go," "Slow Dance," "Incognito" and "A Dozen Roses," Jackson's singular voice combines with heartfelt lyrics and distinctive grooves to make music that carries the timeless appeal of his best work.
