Meet alternative-country/folk group, Eric Jackson & The Willow River Band. The band's journey began in 2021, when singer-songwriter Eric Jackson, fueled by a deep passion for storytelling through music, assembled a group of like-minded musicians who shared his vision for a unique blend of country, folk, and alternative rock.
The band's name pays homage to the original name of the Grand River in Waterloo Region, Ontario, Canada, which is where the band lives and records.
Featuring Eric Jackson on vocals & rhythm guitar, Jake Marskell on lead guitar, and Tyler Craig on Mandolin and Banjo, Eric Jackson & The Willow River Band have been captivating audiences at venues small and large across Ontario.
