NEWS: US Poet Laureate Kara Jackson releases new double single ‘dickhead blues/brain’

Following on from her 2022 debut single ‘no fun/party‘, Chicago-based poet and singer/songwriter Kara Jackson has just unveiled her new double single ‘dickhead blues / brain‘ via September Recordings.

Raised on country folk and Black feminist poets, and serving as National Youth Poet Laureate in 2019/2020, in her music Jackson melds sharp-as-a-blade poetry and folky alt-country drawl, producing a truly original sound with honest and intricate lyricism which demands repeat listening. ‘dickhead blues‘ is an affirmation track filled with tongue-in-cheek humour warding off lovers who don’t deserve her time and energy, and ‘brain‘ is a sentimental companion with wisdom and unfiltered honesty. Both tracks, while contrasting in tone, continue to showcase Kara’s unwavering strength in storytelling

Both tracks are available to stream and download now from all the usual sites. After an intimate live set at The British Library went down a storm last year, be sure to look out for an announcement of European tour dates coming soon.
