"Songs that remind us who we love" describes Jackie's performances. Her astonishing playlist of close to one hundred and fifty songs includes covers of La Chanson Des Vieux Amants, Gracias A La Vida as well as touching renditions of The Rose and her own original songs. Whether it’s the romance you have or the one you long for, she touches a deep chord when she performs in café’s, clubs and private functions in her home town of New York and near her retreat in Hope, Idaho.

“I grew up in Greenwich Village around the cafes, during the 'beatnik' era of the 50's and 60's, the daughter of two artists who met at Cooper Union. Having studied classical piano from 6 years old, and picked up the guitar at 11 to sing in Washington Square Park. She learned over 200 songs by Dylan, Paul Simon, Leonard Cohen, Janis Ian and host of others that defined folk scene in the 60's and 70's.

After a long journey through a white collar professional career, Jackie returned to singing and songwriting in 1995, performing with an all-woman bluegrass band called “Local Honey” in Northern Idaho. Her first album "Tickle Monster" was released 1998. Written as a result of her "Gift-A-Song" program described on her website, it is a collection of lullabies to grow with.

As a result of workshops with Pat Pattison (Berklee), Alex Forbes, Jon Vezner, Steve Seskin, an album of songs "Mama Loose" was released in 2008 and is available on her website for personal and commercial licensing powered by the unique, one-stop license and contract engine, LicenseQuote.

She is currently working on her next album due for release in 2011 which includes her songs, "Birthplace of Diamonds," which speaks to how women want to be loved and dark beauty.
