Imagine waking up every morning with a new melody to sing and knowing, music is the reason for your existence. Some are drawn to music because of the possibility of fortune and fame. Others, like Jackie Rae, feel music in the depths of their soul and have no choice but to share that gift with the world.
If you ask her to describe her sound she’ll say love. “Love is probably the deepest emotion for all of us. For me, music lives in the same part of the soul.”
Jackie was always the little girl who loved to daydream and write poetry. At seven, Jackie’s father began letting her perform before opening his prominent Denver nightclub. It was then that entertaining took a hold of her and has yet to let her go.
After relocating to Los Angeles in 2005 she began recording with various local artist. After struggling through different girl groups she went on to write her solo project “Who I Am.” The album would create the buzz she needed to perform at the Avalon, Club Highlands, Knitting Factory, the Playboy Mansion and many more. She also opened for legendary R&B artist Charlie Wilson at the Key Club, and her song “Freaky” is featured on the movie soundtrack “Steel Here” staring Katt Williams.
Jackie has just completed her second independent project “Runaway” which is set for a spring release. The album includes production from Playalitical (Bone Thugs, Dead Prez), Travis House (Hidden Beach Records) and Sean Gordon (Burning Tree Project).
In the meantime, you can find Jackie Rae on various stages across southern California, or as a nominee in the Los Angeles Music Awards. There is no doubt Jackie Rae will continue to grow as an artist and exceed the expectations of her fans. “Love is never ending and always growing so I will always have music in my heart. How I express that love today will be different tomorrow, and so will my music.” Jackie Rae
