Music and singing have been a part of life for Jackie since a young age when she started finding a real connection with music through figure skating and dance. As soon as she could drive, car singing became a huge part of her daily life! Jackie graduated from Madison Media Institute in 2011 and shortly after began studying and self-teaching vocal technique, writing poetry, and taking her novice guitar skills to the next level. But it wasn't until 2015 when her daughter began high school that she decided to pursue public performance, and fell in love with music all over again. Jackie has been wowing crowds all over Southeastern Wisconsin with her fiery stage presence and powerful vocals ever since! 

There is always something in the works for Jackie, from new original songs to various live collaborations in and around the Madison, WI area. Follow along on social media for the latest news and check out the Events tab for ALL gig updates!
