Multi-ethnic singer/songwriter reinvents mainstream pop music with her debut
album. A unique sound with lyrics you can relate to and understand. 2
bonus tracks in Spanish.
Jacqueline was born in New York
but moved to San Diego
at a young age. Because of her family, Jacqueline grew up listening to an array
of genres, all having equal influence on her. In junior high she started to
gravitate towards songs from musical theater, where she discovered the
importance of song structure, as well as a new found love of performing.
Throughout high school, she performed in various musicals. In 2003, she was
accepted to attend the University
Southern California, where she continued to explore various types of music. She graduated in May of
2007. Her hope is to excel in the craft of songwriting so as to convey her
ultimate goal: blend various music from around the globe to make one mainstream
Her self-titled album is
Jacqueline's debut as a singer/songwriter:
"Throughout my academic
career, I've dabbled with songwriting. It was never a conscious effort until the
summer of 2006. By then I had stopped listening to the radio because I felt all
the music on a majority of the stations, particularly the major ones, was
redundant. I would constantly express my frustration with the lack of variety
represented on the airwaves. My Stepfather then challenged me to 'fix it.' The
result is this album.
Over the course of the
production of this album I've come to appreciate the songwriting and recording
process. I feel this album is a just representation of where I am now as a
songwriter and a good indicator for where my music should start heading. While
this is a start, I definitely want to incorporate new sounds so that what was
once considered world beat can be brought into mainstream music. Already I think
it's happening, I just hope to be a part of the progression."
