Watch and listen to “19” here:
Talia confides, “I grew up fast, the industry will do that to you, especially if you get started young. I’ve always felt like I’ve been around longer than I actually have and I’ve struggled with my mental health for so long that I was exhausted with life. Then I met a person who made me feel so incredibly seen & heard that even the shitty days felt like heaven. He showed me that there is so much more to life than just the bad moments & helped me feel safe enough to be one thousand percent me.”
Her music has recently been profiled by the likes of Teen Vogue, V Magazine, Earmilk, among others. Talia uses music as a therapeutic outlet to help her through the past and present adversities she faces, especially navigating her personal mental health struggles and she hopes others will find solace in it as well.
NAACP award winning actress and singer/songwriter Talia Jackson (Netflix’s “Family Reunion”) releases HIDDEN, her first song entirely written by her about the freedom she feels from being free from a toxic relationship and needing no one but herself. During the pandemic, with filming on hold, Talia began writing all of her own music as a solo songwriter and will be releasing a song each month through the end of the year.
Talia stars alongside Loretta Devine as Tia Mowry-Hardict’s character’s oldest daughter, ‘Jade McKellan,’ in Netflix’s multi-camera comedy “Family Reunion” from veteran showrunner Meg DeLoatch (“Family Matters”). Originally hailing from Wisconsin, Talia moved to Santa Barbara at the age of seven to begin pursuing her twin passions of acting and singing. When she’s not in front of the camera or in the studio recording new music, Talia loves songwriting with her brother actor/singer/songwriter Armani Jackson (Netflix’s Little Boxes/TBS CHAD) and lending her voice to mental illness awareness and Global Lyme Alliance.
