"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.”

"Beautiful vocals, eclectic mix of electonica with nu jazz and downtempo.”

Waves of Love

Lyrics

Take a look into the heart
Where does the life really start
Secrets are born inside the truth
Your words are the breath of your roots

Waves of Love Waves of Love

Take a bite from the bread
Waves of love roll in the head
Constant the gentle wind
Break your will so love can begin

Waves of Love Waves of Love

And I’ve longed for you
And I’ve longed for you
And I’ve longed
For you

WAVES OF LOVE RELEASED FRIDAY APRIL 17TH, 2020.

REVIEWS:

Jacqueline Kroft has the simplest tastes. She’s always satisfied with the best.

Oscar Wilde

Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead.

Oscar Wilde

Life imitates art far more than art imitates Life.

Beware the barrenness of a busy life.

Aristotle

Hope is a waking dream.

Rumi

Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along.

Lonely Mile Reviews – April 28, 2019

“Passionate, haunting and mildly frenzied slice of alt-pop. The vocals are stunning and supremely powerful and compelling.

BARRY GRUFF BLOG

To begin with, I really dig your style, the composition and the flow are brilliant. Ideas are really inspirational and beautiful. I like the work with the vocals here. The voice here is compelling to listen to. It has good timbre, sonic and character which makes it special in the mix. Keep it up!”

EONITY BLOG

“Really good sound here! The instrumentals were definitely engaging and provided a nice accomplice to your vocals.

Jacqueline, you are an interesting soul and artist. Congratulations on the new upcoming single release as well. Your single ‘Paris Streets’ is nice as well. Until next. “

“Nice contrast here, a tune that goes surf rock to late night jazz in the flicker of an eye. So at first I was about to dish out a Tarantino will love this before realising that this would instead suit the sharp dressed set. Doesn’t include me but that doesn’t mean I wasn’t entertained though and those vocals really reminded me of Sonia Jones who sang the theme tune to the Life of Brian.”

Talented vocals full of personality over a rhythmic instrumentation with sixties reminiscences and heartfelt lyricism,

What's Happening

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
