ABOUT THE ARTIST
A velvet voice, rich as smooth wine... Jackie Gage is a musical storyteller. Her music is emotional, joyous, heart-wrenching, and celebratory. With praise from AFROPUNK, All About Jazz, and Singersroom celebrating her debut album "Siren Songs", you can hear why her music nods to the future of R&B and jazz.
Fresh from her sold out album release at Yoshi's in Oakland, Gage has created a musical identity in her own vein. She recently relocated to New York, where she has already made prominent waves in her field; Jackie has opened for the likes of The Brand New Heavies and El Debarge, performing to sold-out audiences at BB King's. She honed her craft during a month-long residency at the legendary Minton's in Harlem, and has found successes and inspiration performing with East Coast legends like Marc Cary.
Though rooted in the jazz vein, she has also been heard performing with LA's electronic disco producer Captain Supernova, as well as rapper Lyrics Born. She can also be seen visiting California regularly, touring the state from Harlow's in Sacramento, down to Catalina Jazz Club and Blue Whale in Los Angeles.
Her music has been heard internationally, from KCSM, KCRW and Hawaii's CUH, all the way to Jazz FM in England. Her debut album, Siren Songs, impressively reached #43 on JazzWeek charts.
More than this, there's an intimate and hushed feeling present in her live concerts. It's as if she's reading your heart, sharing personal memories of love and loss--at times vulnerable, and equally sweet. It's a show not to miss.
