Jackie Bristow is returning home to New Zealand for a nationwide tour, and playing with Australian musician and long-time collaborator, the talented Mark Punch at The Third Eye this May!
Captivating audiences with her soulful voice, well-crafted songs and natural live command, Jackie exudes warmth and a commitment to her craft, which she has polished to gold in the many concert halls, festivals and listening rooms she has played.
At once heartfelt and sophisticated, Jackie's songs combine subtle but beautiful melodies and hooks that hypnotise the listener, then stick around like the backbone of a real friend.
Her 2016 album Shot Of Gold was released in New Zealand and the US, and garnered high praise. American magazine ‘Vents’ called it 'simply stunning', and Gaham Reid from NZ Herald gave it 4 stars.
Over the past year Bristow has had the honour of opening for many of her international heroes including Bonnie Raitt, Tommy Emmanuel, the Steve Miller Band, Foreigner and in past years Marc Cohn, John Oates, Art Garfunkel, Madeline Peryoux, Phoebe Snow, Daniel Lanois and Jimmy Webb.
Don't miss the opportunity to catch this beautiful Kiwi songbird at The Third Eye!
Praise for Jackie Bristow:
"... in the moving 'Fallen Youth' she gives Emmylou Harris a real run for her money."
Graham Reid, New Zealand Herald
"This album gets into your head, your heart and your muscles…. SHOT OF GOLD is simply stunning."
Patrick O'Heffernan, VENTS Magazine (USA)
"This album is full of emotion and demands that you listen to it in all its rawness and vulnerability." - Ria Loveder (NZ)
"….Bristow finds her artistic voice, shades of Karla Bonoff or Bonnie Raitt at their most meaningful and melodic where the method of delivery is as effective as the material itself."
Kevin Oliver, Country Standard Time(USA)
