"Geoff Jackson’s songs for the British Comedy film City Slacker come from
his irrepressible enthusiasm and Liverpool songwriting pedigree. He has a knack for turning life's
simplest experiences into heart-tugging pop arias.”' Tony Visconti Legendary record
producer New York
"Geoff Jackson is a great character with a big heart. He has written some
wonderful uplifting songs and music for the feature film City Slacker. I very much enjoyed
producing his song Love Keeps Growing in collaboration with the legendary Record Producer Tony
Visconti. This song features on Debbie Clarke's debut album for Warner Music Group." Paul Cartledge. Producer and Engineer. London 2012
Jackson is not only incredibly talented but he's also great to work with. Give him an idea,
any time of day and before you know it he comes back with something original and brilliant.
He has written the music and end song for the pilot episode of an on line sit com that I have
recently made and I couldn't be hapith the work he's done."

am a Film writer and Producer and Geoff composed all the songs/underscore featured on my latest
movie - City Slacker. Geoff picked up the script for City Slacker one evening and by the
next morning he had already sent me ideas for songs and music. His songs resonated perfectly with
the film which enhanced the emotion and highlighted the comedy. The quality of his work enabled
him to attract Tony Visconti to the project. Geoff writes with passion and commitment and is fantastic
to work with. He's a very talented composer and I look forward to working with him on future projects"
