He’s a multitalented international television personality, a professional magician, a successful model and a world class DJ -- but for Apollo Jackson that’s just not enough.
The Gold Coast born star has big plans for his future.
In fact, Apollo has always thought big. He began dancing at just three years old, but quickly discovered magic, acting, music and circus arts, and he was a word class entertainer by the time he was a teenager, developing his unique style of magic, presenting and acting with an unmatched presence and charisma.
That charisma has seen the 6’5” star now move into collaborations / brand partnerships with clients such as Johnny Bigg, making him one of Australia's most in demand XL models.
Appearing on both The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise, Apollo won fans with his physique and honesty on screen, and further showcased his skills in magic and presenting in his national commercial campaigns for Arnotts as the Tim Tam Genie, Dynamo Professional, New Zealand TV commercials for AJAX and more.
More recently, he took his magic and illusions to new heights, when he reached the semi-finals of Australia’s Got Talent - his heart-stopping stunts winning him fans across the nation and cementing his place as a serious contender in the entertainment world.
A few different career threads, yes, but all part of those plans.
A world-class entertainer who has performed at some of the biggest venues in Australia and Las Vegas, now he’s taking the next steps in his career, adding more and more to his already impressive CV. “I just want to live a life doing what I love at the highest level I can, while travelling as much as I can,” he says.
Apollo is also a talented touring DJ, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist who’s had a lifelong passion for music, performing live on television and venues across the country.
He has written songs for several well-known artists and had a top 10 charting song himself -- ‘With You’ reaching number #6 on the Dance Charts and #24 on the overall iTunes charts. No surprise , then, that Apollo has more music releases in his future, including a collaboration Pop/Dance cross over with ARIA #1 charting producer KOMES due for release in November. And when not creating that music himself, his DJ sets will blow you away.
Bringing with him a one-of-a-kind live show, Apollo’s performance includes wild mixes, creative mashups and live vocals with some of the added theatrics straight out of his magic and stunt work, for an immersive musical experience like no other.
At corporate events, Apollo performs differently from your run of the mill MC or simple magician – designing tricks and illusions for clients that will blow your mind, all the while carrying with him the charisma, humour and vibrancy that he oozed through TV.
This time in his career is ever-changing and evolving, as Apollo takes the traditional role of presenter -- and all round entertainer -- to the next level and beyond.
