Little do a lot of us know, you do not have to travel far to find new music that you would like to listen too from an artist you have never heard before. There are some great musicians just in your own backyard we will say. This is the case with this reviewers selection this month in Discover. Hailing from Fredericton, New Brusnswick, Canada, let me introduced you to Jaclyn Reinhart and her new CD called, “Favorites Mistakes”.

What has been given to us in this five song set is an wide range of honest emotions. You feel the pieces here are autobiographical and all of us can relate to the subjects as it is about the ups and downs of relationships.

On “Favorite Mistakes”, Jaclyn Reinhart takes us through the pain of separation in the dramatic, “ Oil & Water”, an emotional and painful reality check in, “I Know a Girl”, the feel of reflecting on what could have been, “Take It”, if only the man involved would have stepped up and given it his all. On “One Day”, the promise of convincing the object of her affection that if just given the change, he would be hers.

Now, Jaclyn Reinhart’s name is the first you see when you pick up this CD, however it feels like a complete band effort with its fullness within the compositions. The musicianship of Jessy Ashfield (Keyboards), Tony Patterson (Bass), Jonnie Price (Guitar) and Chris Eagles (Drums) are felt throughout this piece of work. In accomplishing this not one individual played over the song but for the song.

This is a collection of music we can all relate to and is played with vigor and genuine emotion. Jaclyn Reinhart’s “Favorite Mistake” is recommended for all of those that have been the same things in life.

NEW MUSIC TUESDAY BLOG-BONUS!

Saturday night I dropped into Mama’s Pub, where Jaclyn Reinhart was celebrating the release of her first disc as The Jaclyn Reinhart Band. I’d never seen her perform with a full band before (she’s an acoustic staple at the Canada Day celebrations, as well as the Free Summer Concert Series), so I was looking forward to the show.

The band suits her!

Having a lead guitarist and a good rhythm section pushes her songs to new areas, and having Jessy Ashfield, another talented singer and songwriter, on the keys and backing vocals only elevates Jaclyn’s own voice; they harmonize wonderfully. Her disc is a 5 song effort, which she’s super excited to have available. I got video of the band doing a new song that didn’t make the album...check it out: http://bcove.me/sy1hkqrl - The Blogola

Man, am I ever tired from the weekend's festivities in Charlottetown for the East Coast Music Awards. It was a blast to be surrounded by such awesome talents from all over our Atlantic provinces. There is so many unique musicians who just need to be seen, and to get their music out there to the masses, and the ECMA's are the perfect venue for that. I spent Saturday morning at the Discovery Stage and saw some great up and comers who I believe are well on their way to stellar things in this industry. One of which is Fredericton's Jaclyn Reinhart Band. A powerful voice, succinct melodies and a group of people who are dedicated and excited to be on stage doing what they love. If you haven't seen the Jaclyn Reinhart band yet, I'm sure you will soon. Also congrats to Chris Colepaugh and all the other amazing performers who took home awards at this awesome event!



And of course, here are some things I learned from my weekend away..



1. Islanders do not know how to merge any more than people here do.



2. No matter what time of day it is, during the ECMA's you can always find somebody dancing by themselves.



3. P.E.I's tourism slogan "come play on my Island," will ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS be better than New Brunswick's sad, pathetic, and just plain stupid, "Be...in this place."

It's going to be a proud moment for Jaclyn Reinhart.

The deeply passionate, fun-loving local singer-songwriter will officially release her debut five-song EP, Favourite Mistakes, on Saturday evening at Mama's Pub.

Reinhart said a lot of hard work and determination has allowed her to find the right musicians to work with, to scrounge the money to pay for the recording, mastering and production of the CDs, and to market this weekend's CD-release party.

"I have a huge sense of accomplishment. I'm very proud of (the album). I'm proud of the work that went into it, not just by myself but by all of the people who touched it," she said. "It's finally being able to say, 'This is what I can do. This is for you.' It's one of the most important things I've done in my life, outside of being a mom."

It's an impressive collection of songs, especially the standout track Oil and Water - a bittersweet love song that features strong musicianship, emotional vocals and impressive production work.

"It's probably our strongest song. It really represents what I want to do going forward. It's a rock song. I love pop, but I think I have more of a rock edge in me," she said.

"Oil and Water is about my ex-husband and I. It's about realizing that something isn't working in your life and being able to move on from it. It really is a good representation of the way that I live my life. If you know something's not right, you give it another chance. But if it doesn't work out, you've got to walk away."

The show kicks off at 9 p.m. Matt McGuire will help get the party started. - The Daily Gleaner

Jaclyn Reinhart may be late to the music game, but she and her band are quickly playing catch-up.

"I'm not afraid to take chances in life, love and music," said Reinhart "I'm happy to make mistakes as long as I can learn and grow from them."

When we spoke to Reinhart, her hair was streaked with purple. Those violet locks were the inspiration behind the photoshopped daisy on her album cover. The flower imagery is fitting; when it comes to music, Reinhart's a late bloomer.

She was 19 when she started songwriting and playing guitar. But after a few years she realized conditions weren't right for a music career. "Life happened. I had a daughter, music took a backburner."

Last July, Reinhart began work on Favourite Mistakes and formed The Jaclyn Reinhart Band with Tony Patterson, Jessy Ashfield, Camilo Villamizar and Jeff DiPaolo.

In April, the quintet played at the ECMAs. The experience taught them to let loose onstage and have fun with performing, while keeping their songs tight.

"Our live shows - if anyone has seen us before, when they see us now it's completely different. The energy is through the roof," said Reinhart.

The forthcoming album was produced by Andrew MacRae with Outreach Productions. Crafted to be marketable and radio-friendly, it's rife with pop hooks. But make no mistake, "I'm no Britney Spears," said Reinhart. "I like rocking it out."

The band is booked 'til mid-summer, and they want to keep the momentum going. But the bulk of their attention is on promoting the album and expanding their fan base.

"(Favourite Mistakes is) a great representation of what I do and what I can do," said Reinhart. "I think I'm in a great spot right now, I'm building and building and continuing to build." - Here Magazine

Bio

Great artists connect with people. It doesn’t matter the discipline. Be they a painter, a sculptor, a writer or, of course, a musician. When people hear Jaclyn Reinhart’s music, they connect with it because they relate to it. They have felt the emotions expressed in her lyrics, they have lived stories similar to the ones she tells and there is always at least one of her songs they feel could have been written specifically about them.

This is the power of Jaclyn Reinhart’s music - the ability to convey the human experience, good and bad, uplifting and soul crushing.

She marries those lyrics to a singer-songwriter sound that blends radio friendly pop hooks with a soft rock veneer that brings her fans to their feet and their voices alive as they sing along. And she does it all with a talented and powerful voice that has won over fans throughout the Maritimes and beyond by playing venue after venue, building a bigger and bigger profile and fan following along the way.

Through the last half decade she has played the Capital Complex, the Dooryard Art Festival in Woodstock, NB and the popular Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival. In 2012 she performed during ECMA week in Moncton, NB and a year earlier took part in Music New Brunswick week in the Hub City as well. That same year she was a finalist in the Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival Galaxie Rising Star Competition. She was top vote getter in Canada for the Hard Rock Rising competition held January 28 to February 11. As a the Band traveled to Toronto, ON to showcase at the Hard Rock Cafe as a part of the Battle of the Bands. In 2010 she made the Top 20 in the Lilith Fair Montreal talent contest the Top Six in the Molson Canadian Singer Songwriter Contest.

And along the way, while juggling work, family and music commitments, Jaclyn released her first album. Recorded at the ECMA nominated Outreach Productions studio, “Favorite Mistakes” was released in Summer 2011. It quickly sold out, necessitating additional printings. It is also an available and popular digital download. She is currently working on her follow up album, tentatively titled “Say” with an expected released date in 2013.

“It’s an impressive collection of songs, especially the standout track Oil and Water - a bittersweet love song that features strong musicianship, emotional vocals and impressive production work.” - Adam Bowie, The Daily Gleaner - Live It (Jun 16, 2011)
