Starting with the acoustic, beachy first track 'POSSIBLE' and changing genres with each following song, Jackie takes you on a musical tour of a land far far away; also known as her mind. You and BEGUILING will get along famously. It already likes you and you guys haven't even met yet. Introduce yourself.
"Beguiling" is a word that can be used to describe Jackie Tohn on and off stage. It is also the title of her sophomore release. An accomplished guitar-toting, singer/songwriter, Jackie has licensed songs on prime-time network television through her publishing co- Powerfox Publishing / BMI.
Music Connection Magazine recently listed her in their Top 100 unsigned artists of 2007.
Since the debut of her first album, "The Golden Girl EP", Jackie's grassroots following continues to grow. Be sure to check out www.mypace.com/jackietohn to find out when she's playing in a city near you. This is one live act you do not want to miss.
Here are some nice things some music people have said about her:
"If you combine the songwriting skills of Laura Nyro, the gutsy earthiness of Janis Joplin, and the cool, bohemian style of Rickie Lee Jones, you'll have some idea of Jackie Tohn. And, though some may think those references are dated, you have to go back that far to find artistry this good. Smart, insightful, and in your face, her acoustic rock material is utterly compelling. Tohn's command of her guitar is striking, and is as expressive as her voice. From low, guttural murmurings to sweet purrs, Tohn's vocals are some of the most enchanting you're likely to hear. She totally captivated the crowd.
Summary: This young artist is a star in the making. Jackie Tohn has a special gift and there are not many like her.

“On Stage, Jackie Tohn Goes, and Goes...If Jackie lived on a park bench, she would put on shows for the pigeons. She can’t help it. Some people believe there is no such thing as a natural, but Tohn is wired to entertain. On stage, she’s a cross between Bette Midler (only better looking) and Lauryn Hill."
