Irish singer-songwriter Jaxson, revered for his emotive musical narratives, is set to ignite the music scene once again after a two-year hiatus. The announcement of his forthcoming EP, "LIFE IN ITS PUREST FORM," is sending ripples of excitement through the industry, with the lead single "OVERDOSE" scheduled for release on September 1st, 2023.

In 2021, Jaxson made the courageous decision to step away from the spotlight and focus on his mental health—a hiatus that he now views as pivotal to his artistic evolution. Reflecting on that transformative period, Jaxson shares, "I have never been so low. I said to myself, if music is going to be my career, I need to make sure I am mentally ready." This candid introspection led him to seek therapy and dedicate time to self-discovery, exploring life outside of music while nurturing new interests and hobbies.


As Jaxson's mental health improved, his creative spirit was reignited. "As I started to feel better and my mental health started to improve, I naturally started to write songs again, and it was some of the best writing I have ever produced," Jaxson reveals. These raw emotions and newfound perspectives have culminated in his upcoming EP, "LIFE IN ITS PUREST FORM," a musical testament to his personal growth and resilience.


Now poised to re-emerge onto the music scene, Jaxson's journey of self-renewal is evident in his impressive achievements to date. He has sold out his debut headline show at Dublin's renowned Whelans, graced the stages of some of Ireland's most esteemed festivals, and garnered significant recognition on national and international platforms, including a feature on the TV show Made In Chelsea. His music has gained over 100,000 streams on Spotify and secured coveted spots on influential playlists such as New Music Friday UK.

Jaxson's resurgence gathers strength with the imminent release of 'OVERDOSE' on September 1st, 2023. This poignant lead single encapsulates a unique narrative—an exploration of love amidst the backdrop of an apocalyptic world on the brink of destruction. With the universe teetering on the edge of collapse, 'OVERDOSE' paints a vivid picture of two souls entwined, making the most of their final moments together. In a world racing towards its end, the song delves into the profound emotions of cherishing each fleeting instant, a poignant reflection of love and impending oblivion. Jaxson masterfully poses the question: How would it feel to be in the embrace of your beloved as the world crumbles around you? 'OVERDOSE' captures the essence of sharing an enduring connection in the face of impending catastrophe.

As anticipation for "LIFE IN ITS PUREST FORM" swells, Jaxson's determination to make his mark on the music industry is palpable. With appearances lined up on RTÉ One's new music show, "Songs From Ireland," and a series of captivating live performances, including:
