"Jackie Mendoza, "Islands""

The song opens as the camera follows Mendoza down a hotel hallway, a pleasantly minimalist keyboard tip-toeing over a light, scattered beat. The vocals act, at least at first, as a calming grounding of the instruments, which build in swirling ambience, the visuals becoming simultaneously increasingly hectic and weighty as the song progresses - Impose Magazine


"Female Artists in Greenpoint: Jackie Mendoza"

I’ve written songs since I was about 12 or 13 years old but began producing and recording songs in high school. It’s been pretty easy to focus on my solo project as well as Gingerlys mostly because of how drastically different they are. My songs come from me 100% and I have complete control over the sound and atmosphere I want to create, whereas Gingerlys takes collaboration and group effort. - Greenpointers


"ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: JACKIE MENDOZA"

Her melodies and narrative way of writing act as a love-stream to her childhood.As a child she honored her creative expressions by exploration, inwardly and outwardly. She expressed herself through written words, through music and of course, the Internet. Her latest music video for her single ‘Islands’ acts as an ode to the intergalactic force of the Internet while being a direct commentary on how in this day in age we certainly live in public. - Smoothie Tunes


"Jackie Mendoza y el don de cantar sobre tus propios tracks"

Jackie Mendoza es una música nata, una creadora, y una compositora en todo el sentido de la palabra. Aunque oriunda de Tijuana, ahora reside en Nueva York. Ha dejado a un lado el Ukelele (aunque no del todo) y ahora se dedica a explorar su lado "más electrónico" a través del Ableton cuando no está cantando en su otra banda. Una chica prolífica y talentosa. Enfocada. - Thump Mexico


"Entrevista: Jackie Mendoza habla de su nuevo video “Islands”."

Todo el día pienso en melodías vocales y cuando me viene una que me gusta le agrego letra y hago lo instrumental en Ableton. Me encanta poner National Geographic en la tele sin sonido cuando hago música. - Nylon Español

She uses voice and electric ukulele with a blend of electronic beats to bring to life a cacophony of sonic textures. She now resides in Brooklyn, NY.
