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 night club. 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. Struggling
through a few 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,
the Highlands, Knitting Factory, and 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 in the movie soundtrack "Steel Here" staring Katt Williams.
Jackie is now in the studio recording her second
independent project working with producers like
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 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." Jackie Rae
