Kara Jackson: Pawnshop

After sharing several new tracks, Chicago-based poet, musician and singer-songwriter Kara Jackson announces her debut full-length album, Why Does The Earth Give Us People To Love?, with the single “Pawnshop.” Featuring Western-tinged guitar, soft percussion and lyrics abounding in open-ended questions, the track blends and bends genres. The artist explains, it’s “about uncovering how worth is subjective. It’s taking ‘one man’s trash is another man’s treasure’ and reveling in that sentiment, taking pride in the fact that even if people can’t understand your value, only you know how priceless you are.”
