Jackie Brown is a Milwaukee native and has been performing since she was 13 years old. As a young girl she found that music not only provided an escape from harsh reality but also gave her a sense of pride and purpose. Over the years of self-taught guitar/singing/songwriting, she gained the skills and confidence to pursue her dream of becoming a professional singer.!
Working various part time jobs throughout high school and college, Jackie also performed on week ends with a very popular local rock band. It was the thrill of a lifetime when they became the opening act for era bands like Marshall Tucker, Grand Funk Railroad, Head East and Joan Jet. !
Following her dream to perform she formed and managed a duo acoustic rock band, “Jackie Brown and The Boys”, which quickly transitioned into a six piece Rock & Modern Country Rock band, “Jackie Brown Band”. Setting her sights to perform major local festivals, she has regularly appeared at SummerFest, Wisconsin State Fair, Potawatomi Hotel & Casino, Miller Park Stadium and dozens of other venues and corporate events throughout Southeastern Wisconsin.
Jackie continues to be inspired by a growing range of genres, but for some reason the newer country is what opened the flood gates of writing inspiration, and out came her EP "Reawakened". Her unique sound has been featured on several local radio stations like WMIL fm106.1, Guarantee Raw Radio AM1050 as well as their live debut T.V. performance on WITI-TV FOX6. The bands newest original cd “Life’s a Party” released in 2017, is available on iTunes, amazon.com, ReverbNation, and soundcloud.com.!
The album can be downloaded through Apple Music at https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/lifes-aparty/id1203817458 and all major online stores.
Jackie is currently writing her newest album as her JB JEMZ and GENTZ eagerly await!!
Don't Quit Your Daydream!”
“My music and writing style focus on songs that make you feel something. As an artist and performing musician I strive to share that experience of emotion and exhilaration with others. Capturing that passion has always been what it's about, whether performing a cover or writing an original.”!
