Millie Jackson

Millie Jackson is much more than an entertainment legend. The shapely, charismatic and multi-talented entertainer is without a doubt, a music industry icon whose often criticized career paved the way for many of today’s forward female recording artists and entertainers. Not only has her lengthy career attracted fans from all walks of life along the way; it’s rumored that Bette Midler and Roseanne took pages from Millie’s high voltage explicit approach to sex, to enrich their respective careers.

 

In spite of being stamped bawdy, brash and bad, Millie is the epitome of performance perfection on stage. She has no peer in this department!!! Several years ago, she added a new dimension to her established legendary career by creating, financing, directing and starring in a ‘hit’ musical stage play that was based on one of her previous recordings, “Young Man, Older Woman”. During the play’s touring years, audiences (old and new) discovered that Millie Jackson was equally at home as an actress, as she was singing songs in a musical mesmerizing manner.

 

Her first record release, “A Child of God,” on Spring Records, more or less set the tone for what was to come with sexual and social hypocrisy from the transplanted Georgia native. Her debut album resulted in Millie being named ‘Most Promising Female Vocalist’ by a NATRA a now defunct radio and record industry organization. The following year, her single, “It Hurts So Good,” was featured in the Warner Brothers film, “Cleopatra Jones”. The soundtrack album resulted in Millie winning ‘Best Female R&B Vocalist’ honors from Cash Box Magazine.

 

Both her powerful vocal prowess and her ability to gather material to fit perfectly into the philosophical tune trends of the times surfaced when her next album was released. Then, with the help of Brad Shapiro she started producing herself. Their team efforts produced ‘gold’ for the album “Caught Up”. They also wrote history in the annals of the recording industry. Over the ensuing years, Millie’s name became synonymous with a streak of hit albums. “Get It Out Cha System,” “Feelin’ Bitchy,” “Hard Times,” “A Moment’s Pleasure,” “Live and Uncensored,” “For Men Only,” “I Had To Say It,” “A Little Bit Country” and “Live and Outrageous” were some of the albums that earned Millie more ‘gold’ on Spring Records and added to her liberated lyrical approach. A few years later she produced and performed on an album with Isaac Hayes. The collaboration was entitled “Royal Rappin’s”.

 

For the past several years Millie has been doing her daily radio show on KKDA in Dallas, Texas, from various locations around the country. More recently she was inspired to record again. Rather than go through changes with other record labels, she decided to launch her own label and record the types of songs and materials that made her the outspoken, sexually liberated Millie Jackson that people loved and flocked to see.

 

The name of her new record label is Weird Wreckuds – git it!! Her new single “Butt-A-Cize” and her new album entitled “Not For Church Folk!” are currently available.
