AACTA and Logie award winning actor Joel Jackson, from Jungle and Peter Allen, brings his all – every time he steps onto stage. A unique blend of Paul Kelly inspired songwriting and Jack Johnson’s laid back groove, this saltwater cowboy will be perfect for your upcoming event.

Joel has been performing for just over a decade now; with support slots including The Beautiful Girls, Birds of Tokyo, Ian Moss, Diesel and many more. His first EP Boy On A Wire was produced by eight time golden guitar winner Rod McCormack and his latest single Currents, by ARIA award winner Joel Quartermain of Eskimo Joe. His forthcoming second EP is set to be released in early 2023.

Raised in the dust and heat of North West Australia, Joel grew up playing to rough and rowdy mining pubs in the town of Karratha.

At age 16 Joel was supporting Australian music giants like Hoodoo Gurus, Daryl Braithwaite, Jon Stevens, Diesel, Russell Morris, WA legend’s Birds Of Tokyo, The Beautiful Girls and more. When Joel was 17 he spent a year as an exchange student in Brazil and upon arriving home Joel’s energetically electric sets grew, as did his songwriting ability.

Joel’s mining protest song, “Home Wanted”, made it’s way to ABC Radio National and won him a selection into the HeyWire program, an ABC initiative, to perform at Parliament House to the then Minister for Education and ultimate king of protest, Peter Garrett, frontman to Midnight Oil. Joel’s career as an award winning actor hasn’t kept him from performing or writing and after hit stage appearances across Australia in 2019, his debut acoustic EP, Boy On A Wire is here.

  • "Joel Jackson is the ultimate showman, an amazing singer, host and human. Zero2hero were delighted to have Joel MC and perform at our inaugural Red Cape Ball. He did a fabulous job as our MC and his performance was heartfelt and memorable. What we loved about working with Joel is that he wowed the audience whilst on stage, but he didn’t stop there, he made a point of engaging in conversation with as many of our guests as possible. I would have no reservations in recommending Joel."

    Ashlee Harrison, Founder & CEO of zero2hero, Young Western Australian of the Year, 2016
  • "When Joel Jackson performs at your event he beams with energy…and everyone feels it. Whether slow and soulful, or cranking out a classic hit, Joel will captivate your audience and get them on their feet. Joel is a firm supporter of Children’s Medical Research Institute and has been the crowd favourite at our Denim Dinner each of the last three years. Most of all Joel is dependable and a gentleman. When you need a great performance by a charismatic singer who has the music and the rhythm down to his core, look no further than Joel Jackson."

    Andrew J Kelly, Chief Executive
  • "As a performer and presenter, Joel Jackson has wowed the likes of Premier Mark McGowan, ex minister of Foreign Affairs Julie Bishop, mining magnate Andrew Forrest, the Governor of Western Australia and many more for three years as host and performer at the Western Australian of the Year Awards, in 2019, 2018 and 2016. Joel was one of few WA Day Ambassadors which saw him perform at both the Western Australian of the Year Awards Gala and at the Elizabeth Quay MainStage before igniting the fireworks that would celebrate the climax of the weekend’s celebration of this great state. Joel’s pride as a West Australian has shone through in more ways than one. Yes, as an award winning actor he has performed on every national television broadcaster in the country, but as a humanitarian Joel’s tireless efforts speak to the wonderful asset he is to this state."

    Maryna Fewster, Chief Executive Officer of Seven West Media.
  • “When Joel performed on stage at Telethon in 2019, this is exactly how he made the live audience, and the millions of viewers at home feel. Joel created an energy that lifted the event, and produced lasting memories for those who were involved.”

    Kate Molinari, Chief Marketing Officer, Seven West Media
  • “Why do we keep getting Joel back? His down to earth nature, professionalism and flexibility; it’s hard to come by a quality performer who is so low maintenance, leaving event planners available to tend to other important tasks.”

    Emily Zimmerle, Arts & Culture Officer, City of Karratha
