Local 913: Mars Jackson
Rapper & Singer Mars Jackson spent his childhood in Pittsburgh’s Hill District surrounded by a loving family that helped develop his appreciation for music right from the start.
“My mom kept us pretty busy. My sister and I joined the singing choir. She also made us play instruments; I played the violin and my sister played the viola. In church, we sang in the choir. My mom has 5 brothers who are all different. They all listen to different things. Including my grandma, my grandfather and my great-grandfather, who was a musician, I mean, music was played all the time in the house.”
Mars Jackson is set to release Good Days Never Last Forever on May 4th, featuring the song “Heart Dance.”
“It’s just a vibe, man. If you put that song on and just really let it rock, it’s one of the best vibes you’ll get. I wrote that song about a night on the town with my girlfriend. I put imagination in there, like I threw in “Weekend at Bernie’s” and I put a Golden State lyric that I hope people caught. It’s just giving you a vibe of what can be for the summer. I’m bringing you good vibes this summer!”
