Album Notes

JACINDA BEALS grew up in the mining town of Labrador City. While her father toiled in the iron ore mine, her family lived in company housing -- a trailer with walls barely thick enough to keep out the winter’s frigid temperatures and metres of snow.At age five, Jacinda’s sweet singing voice and smiling eyes warmed the hearts of family and friends in their living room. She started taking piano lessons at six, and was playing her father’s twelve-string guitar at 13. She then performed with her dad, Pierce, at summer folk festivals. “We took turns backing each other up with guitar - we’d do songs like ‘Fields of Athenry’,” she says.

During high school, ‘Cin’ as she’s known to most, turned to more contemporary music and started a female, pop and metal cover group. She rocked out in battles of the bands playing Red Hot Chili Peppers’ songs, and covered The Indigo Girls with her friend Tina Cassell. She also wrote and performed music for the school’s theatre productions.
She said good-bye to Labrador City at 18 after finishing high school and headed for college in Newfoundland. She studied journalism at West Viking College in Stephenville and ended up recording and producing an album that included two of her original songs, while taking a sound technology course there. And it was there that she met another young musician, Susan Gale; Cin joined her rock band to sing backup and play rhythm guitar. The two girls left the province, and Cin struggled to make a living playing music in Prince Edward Island.

She recorded a song with the Susan Gale Band for the compilation CD Eat This Two, showcased with the band at the ECMAs in 1997, and then returned to her roots, settling down in Happy Valley-Goose Bay. She found inspiration back home in Labrador and started seriously writing music and looking for ways to fund her career.
She began performing with ECMA-winner Tunker Campbell at venues around Goose Bay and also found a musical confidant in local singer and drummer Mike Lethbridge. Together they started the Friday Night Jam Session at Lethbridge’s nightclub, Rumours, where Cin also performs with the country/rock band, Crossroads.

Cin’s wide musical range and polished songwriting skills are nicely packaged in her first album, Slip Into My Skin, produced by Tracy Holmes of Ottawa’s Distortion Studios. Cin says she feels the ten-song CD was a great musical accomplishment, “after I heard all the positive feedback”. She heard plenty of praise about her talents at Contact East 2003, and was nominated for two Music Industry Association of Newfoundland & Labrador awards shortly after. Songs from Slip Into My Skin were also released on two Newfoundland & Labrador Fueling the Fire compilation discs.

Her music has been described as “funky folk with rock and roll attitude” and her lyrics are heartfelt and poetic, often telling of the people and places she loves. Her song Labrador to the Core has become somewhat of a local anthem, although Cin says she wasn't even sure about putting it on the album.

In May 2004 Cin played Newfoundland and Labrador’s Arts and Culture Centres on a Women and Song tour, with Jackie Sullivan and Christa Borden. The tour recieved great reviews from all over the province and Cin says it was great opportunity. “I really learned a lot from the other musicians on the tour..... Everyone was so professional and so down to earth. It was such an awesome experience”.
But Cin says her biggest accomplishment to date is the new album she just released on November 12th, 2005 in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Labrador. "Love, Cin" was recorded this past summer when Cin returned to Distortion Studios in Ottawa, On. The new album contains 9 of Cin's originals and "Dark Rain", a song by another Labrador singer/songwriter, Shirley Montague and partner,Terry Delaney.

Jacinda was nominated for 2006 Female Artist of the Year with MUSICNL and just returned from Stephenville, NL where she performed in the MUSICNL Awards Show and the CBC MUSICNL Songwriter’s Circle with Mark Bragg, Sherry Ryan, Sean Panting and Tim Baker. This songwriter’s circle will be aired on CBC Radio the 25th of November, 2006. "Love, Cin" was produced by Tracy Holmes and is now available!!

shannon morris

excellent cd,...is that tunker playing lead guitar????

Jacinda Beals

Thanks Shannon. The guitarist is actually Gord Crawford. He was great to work with and played so awesome in the studio. Mike Lethbridge (drums) & Etienne Rich (bass) also played on this album.

Steve Lyall

Strong collection of songs in a folk/rock(?) vein.
Mostly feisty upbeat songs with lyrics that seem to relate to passages/occurences of the artists life. As mentioned Selfish me is a cracking track but it shouldn't overshadow the many other fine songs here. To my mind not really any track that I would want to skip. Excuse me sir is a stand out and I like the sentiments of Her walk.

Kevin Kelly - Enjoy! Winter 2006

Jacinda Beals is a young singer/songwriter from Happy Valley-Goose Bay who impressed many with her debut CD, Slip into My Skin, back in 2003. Now Beals is back with her sophomore effort, Love, Cin! It's an introspective rock album that showcases the burgeoning talent of this gifted Labradorian. Included in this latest offering are a number of laid-back original tunes, the best of which is the ballad that closes the album, "Selfish Me". Beals' songs are both catchy and memorable, and her lyrics seem heartfelt and poetic throughout. There is also a cover of a Shirley Montague and Terry Delaney song, "Dark Rain", one of Beals' own favourites. With strong songs and melodies on Love, Cin!, Beals is an artist to listen for.

Kevin Kelly - The Newfoundland Herald

Her debut CD, Slip Into My Skin, turned a few heads to the "funky folk" sounds of this Labrador native. Now Beals is back with her second CD, Love, Cin and she continues her promise as a singer/songwriter on this new project.
Selfish me is the best tune here, a beautiful piano-laden ballad which as "hit" written all over it. However, the album contains a number of strong songs, including Never Alone, Excuse me Sir, Keep Drivin' and a cover of Dark Rain, a song written by Newfournlander Shirely Montague and Terry Delaney. Beals has a lot of talent, and this CD is well worth searching for.


Beautiful album
Jacinda Beals is a must; and it is the perfect time to listen to this awesome LOVE, Cin CD ! Excuse me Sir, is the song that first reached my ears, months ago, here in France. This album is simply brilliant....
