NEW ALBUM

PIANO PRELUDES VOL 01

The Piano Preludes Vol 01 will be released on Friday, March 11th, 2022. These works came as presents from heaven, an unbelievable flurry of notes and love entered the room into my fingers and onto the piano. They are gifts and simple snippets of harmony, rhythm and melodies that are a springboard for me to expound on during rehearsals and performances. I hope that they will fill your airways and hearts with the positive feelings that where delivered to me. I am very thankful for these messages and to have you there as my fans. You mean everything to me, just like life itself.

• During lockdown and self-isolation, Jacqueline Kroft has embraced the moment to delve into her compositions and ideas drawer. After some happy discoveries and the first signs of spring, she is delighted to release her new single “tempest in a teacup” on Friday, February 26, 2021. Written and recorded in her home studio, playing every instrument and singing all the vocals in her passionate and sultry style, she has produced this playful song that mirrors the moment. Tempest in a teacup: “playful. Cheeky. Retro. Cinematic. A smoky window into the bittersweet angst of love at a distance.” the must-see accompanying video shot in Gloucestershire and Cornwall by director ginny David features actor Josef reeve. The English winter mists and tall beech forests are reminiscent of Edward hopper or Emily brontë revealing and beautifying the mystery of romance in isolation. As Jacqueline says: “ your cup of tea brings comforting solitude amidst the brewing, whirling storm that is bashing us about in our changing turbulent world.” “ love and affection can be quickly swept away, locked away, hidden away with the only option: you can look but please don’t touch! ” dreams and imagination swirl as you stir your tempest in a teacup

“This reminds me of Bjork, especially the vocals. Great performance, loving the vocals.”

Cool vocals, I liked the experimental take.”

“What an interesting arrangement, of course recalling Venus as a Boy Bjork but if anything JK has put even more of herself into this so we get something as idiosyncratic as can be. It has an 80’s fashion going for it so there were vestiges of Kate Bush going on here too with the result that we felt like were being spirited away to a lonely moor in deepest England. I adore that Jacqueline is following her own instincts here.”

“Dramatic, emotive and stirring slice of synth-pop; powerful vocals soar above a murky haze as synths shimmer and beats pop and snap amid the air of the dramatic – it is smooth, powerful and captivating, and delivered with poise and dramatic flair but there is just too much pop here for myself unfortunately.”
