Country of Origin: New Zealand
Singer /songwriter Jackie Bristow is a southern girl at heart. Born and raised in the South Island of New Zealand this kiwi has found her wings. Moving to Australia 1994, this is where Jackie established herself as a professional musician and recording artist, signing to Mushroom and Liberation music in 1999, Craving Records 2005 and Native Tongue 2007. Beautiful songbird that she is, Jackie has flown halfway around the world with nothing more than her guitar and a dream.
Jackie’s songs have been used repeatedly in Australian and New Zealand film and television hit shows such as The Secret Life Of Us, Home And Away, Outrageous Fortune, Shortland Street, and Go Big. Her track This is Australia won Tourism Australia’s Song Competition, which subsequently featured in a worldwide promotional campaign. Her video's have been added to ME Television (Texas) J2 (NZ ) and has had charting songs on CMC (Australia).
At one, heartfelt and sophisticated, Jackie Bristow combines subtle but beautiful melodies and hooks that hypnotise the listener, demand complete surrender and then stick around with the backbone of a real friend.
