Tito Jackson just like four of his brothers was part of the worlwide famous band « The Jackson 5 ».
He is the third child born in the Jackson family. Performing as a guitarist for the Jackson Five he used his ‘low’ voice to balance out the high pitches of the other brothers. Often given credit for the start of the Jackson Five, Tito says he inherited his talent from his father, Joseph who led the blues band ‘The Falcons’. Joseph Jackson one day discovered a broken string on his guitar and figured out that eight-year-old, Tito had been playing it daily. He asked Tito to play the guitar for him, and was impressed by his talents, as well as the vocals of his sons Jackie and Jermaine. Joseph began to envision a singing group for his sons, and by 1967, the lineup became known as The Jackson Five.
Later on, he started his solo career after having collaborated with great artists and producers like Gamble & Huff, LA Reid & Baby Face, and the versatile Howard Hewitt. He played in blues clubs under his own name, Tito Jackson, sharing his guitar skills to amazed audiences.
