Lonely Mile Reviews – April 28, 2019

 

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

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!”

“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

When I write a song on the piano, I live with it for a while till it feels complete.  Sometimes a song just comes out perfect in energy, floating from nowhere in a surprisingly supreme manner. Then there’s the song that took 20 years to finish like Paris Streets.

When a few songs have been finished during this writing session ( days or years ) and they feel good enough, then the arrangements take place.  For this recent album I got terribly lucky to meet the new band, Robert Holmes on guitar, Jo Kaspar on bass and Senan Roberson on drums.

Like all good things, it all happened by accident. I was asked to play in Paris by Indelible Records Löic de Benaze. My bass player at the time, Will Britton Minney had to go to California to do his degree and my drummer Kevin Faulk was having a baby so they couldn’t do the Paris performance. It was a hard knock, I wanted to play Paris as I love French music and I realised that I wouldn’t be able to work with either one for a long time.

Realising that the only way I could do the Paris concerts was by getting substitute players together, I asked Neil at the SVA if he had seen any good musicians playing there recently and this is how I met Jo and Senan. Amazingly I had just met Robert Holmes at the same time. Our first rehearsal was electric and after the fifth rehearsal I said we really should capture this, so we recorded the whole album in one day at Yellow Shark studio in Cheltenham. This is the album Living with a Ghost, with no synths or decorations, just a great band.

I hope you love this as much as we do. It’s been a joy to make. The featured singles on this page are part of the album so you can start to listen right away.

More stories to come about our performances in Paris, the making of the videos and more live recordings to come.
