'Twilight' Star Will Launch Record Label
Jackson Rathbone of Twilight indicated that he's going to launch a record label of his own. The actor who plays Jasper Hale plays the guitar and harmonica.
The 26-year-old actor recently revealed to Zooey Magazine that he's setting up shop to record his own tunes. He explained, "I'll be working with my band 100 Monkeys and playing shows around the South as well as setting up other productions for the future of my company Patchmo Entertainment. Also, I'm setting up a record label." Perhaps the cover shot is a preview of what's to come as Jackson played his harmonica during the photo shoot.
Perhaps Jackson's global background will influence his music? He was born in Singapore and has lived in Indonesia and Midland, Texas. Jackson then attended an arts academy for high school in Michigan and then moved to L.A. to pursue an acting career. Although it sounds like he'll be pretty busy in the recording studio, Jackson still has acting on his mind. In addition to filming The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1, he'll star in an upcoming web thriller, Aim High, about a high school student who leads a double life as a teenage spy.
