Paris Jackson on Her New Sound: ‘Instead of Making the Audience Cry, I’m Gonna Make Them Jump’​

Her new "louder" music is inspired by Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins and Interpol.

Paris Jackson hit SXSW in Austin to play a few shows with her band before officially kicking off her tour in West Hollywood at the Roxy Theatre on March 23, and the 23-year-old artist took a minute to sit down with Billboard‘s Jason Lipshutz and explain her new, much louder music.

“It’s all gonna be new stuff,” Jackson says of the songs she’s bringing to the stage these days. “There’s always gonna be folk roots because I start the song out as a folk song on a guitar but it’s definitely a lot louder and more fun. Instead of making the audience cry I’m gonna make them jump, which is fun.”

Citing bands such as Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana and Interpol as inspirations, Jackson says her “friend and hero” Butch Walker has been helping out with the new music.

“I’ve always wanted to make this kind of music,” she says. “I’m just now learning how to project and play electric guitar and how to go louder with it. It’s new but I’m starting to get the hang of it.”

Previously, Jackson performed in the acoustic duo The Soundflowers. But folk isn’t far from her brain, even as she turns up the volume on stage. Jackson shared with Billboard that Bright Eyes and early ’00s “alternative folk is what I’ve mainly been listening to.”

Jackson, the daughter of the late King of Pop Michael Jackson, was recently in Paris for Vivienne Westwood’s Paris Fashion Week
show on March 5.

Paris Jackson Channels Her Father Michael In Stunning Concert Photos​


Paris Jackson is finally performing live and already, we’re seeing her father Michael Jackson in her when she performs.

On March 17, Paris posted a series of photos of her performing at the South by Southwest Music Conference and Festival in Austin, Texas. She posted the photos with the simple, yet touching caption, “thank you.”

In the photos, we see Paris in a black dress, fishnet stockings, stacked jewelry, and holding her wooden guitar on stage. We see different angles of her set, some of her playing the guitar to singing soulfully. The photos are enchanting, showing the power and soul behind her music. We end it on a brief video of her and her band performing, looking like they’re having the time of their lives.

We can’t help but see her father in her while she performs, mystifying the crowd with her music and presence. We have no doubt she’ll continue to make amazing career moves, especially while on her first solo tour.

Paris has said many times that her happy place is performing on stage, sharing her music with the world. In a 2020 interview with Variety, Paris even said so herself that performing is what she wants to do. “There are so many different cool parts about being a musician, and performing is one of them.” She added her dream career is “to do this for the rest of my life… Connect with other artists like this, and to create like this. It just makes my heart so full. It’s that feeling like I’m exactly where I need to be, and I’m doing exactly what I need to be doing. It’s hard to explain, but it’s incredible.”
