If the Beatles came from a Smalltown, USA they’d make music a lot like Malachi Jaggers. His songs blow modern country music backwards - the punchy, nuanced drums and understated vocals create a country-meets-70s-rock vibe.
Malachi has been telling heartwarming stories through song since 2019 - invoking nostalgic feelings of historic family ties, railroads, and heartland America. His fans love how his music makes them feel hopeful. Malachi himself says, “I’m drawn to writing about things like family histories and the mysteries of nature. Things that remind us how small we are, and therefore how small our problems are.”
Even though he was influenced by the Beatles, fans often liken him to Tom Petty, John Mellencamp, the Eagles and even Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour. Malachi works with other amazing artists like GRAMMY-nominated engineer and producer Matt Coles (Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Rush, Don Henley, the Eagles), top Nashville session players, including guitarist Tom Bukovac (Vince Gill, Joe Walsh, Alison Krauss, Kenny Chesney, Bob Seger, Alabama) and drummer Chad Cromwell (Kenny Chesney, Brian Wilson, Neil Young, Dolly Parton). Their combined talents bring you Indie Folk music as comfortable as your favorite pair of jeans.
Do you hear that whistle blowing? Climb aboard the Jaggers Train today to join Malachi and his team of all-stars on a warm and brave adventure across wide-open prairies where heartland rock was born.
