"This album gets into your head, your heart and your muscles…. SHOT OF GOLD is simply stunning" VENTS Magazine (US) Patrick O'Heffernan,
Born in New Zealand but then transplanted to Australia and now the United States with a guitar, suitcase and songs, Jackie travels light but packs a heavy punch.
Jackie has been the opening act for many other well-known names over the years: Marc Cohn, John Oates, John Waite, Bettye Lavette, B.J. Thomas, Joe Ely, Marcia Ball, Charlie Robison, Rick Springfield, Bob Schneider, Jimmy Lafave, Euge Groove, Ruthie Foster, Howard Jones, Herbert Gronemeyer, Phoebe Snow, Art Garfunkel, Daniel Lanois, Madeline Peryoux, Jimmy Webb, Paul Williams, and Shawn Mullins, among others. Jackie’s songs have been used repeatedly in Australian and New Zealand film and television hit shows such as "Go Girls," "The Secret Life of Us," "Home and Away," "Outrageous Fortune," "Shortland Street," and "Go Big." Her original song "This is Australia" won Tourism Australia’s nationwide competition and was featured in its worldwide promotional campaigns for three years. Songs from the "Crazy Love" and "Freedom" albums were programmed into rotation at 7,000 Starbucks locations nationwide in the US.
