Been Stealing the Covers
WARNING: This album contains a few explicit lyrics! (If you're familiar with Alanis Morissette, 'You Oughta Know' what I mean!) If you love this CD but you're concerned about sensitive ears in the vicinity of your stereo, there are a limited number of 'censored' copies of the CD available. Email for details. Jackie Jae made her musical debut in rural Minnesota playing the organ for local church services at the age of 10. Although the Catholic Ladies' Auxiliary urged her to pursue a career recording Christian music in the tradition of Amy Grant, Jackie shocked and dismayed them by planting the seeds of her future playing 'Naughty Nancy' in the high school musical 'Little Mary Sunshine.' After feeling the thrill of stripping down to her revealing belly-dancer costume and utilizing her now-signature vocal growl in front of a screaming live audience, there was just no turning back. Jackie went on to get her BFA from the University of Arizona while touring the country with the Symphonic Choir as well as rocking the Tucson college area with her band, 'Random Child.' In 1996, Jackie moved to San Diego where she sang a cappella with Ryan Drummond of the AYU Quartet (CD available here on CD Baby!) before joining the popular corporate cover band, The Mar Dels. There she earned her reputation as an energetic and versatile performer singing powerful leads and beautifully blended harmonies, as well as playing trumpet, guitar and various other instruments in over 100 live performances each year. Now with her own band, Spoon Thieves, Jackie Jae delivers a passion and power not often found in the world of cover bands. With their unique blend of power blues, crossover rock and cardiac pop, Jackie Jae and Spoon Thieves pull on your nostalgic heart strings by reminding you of favorite songs you had long forgotten while injecting them with a modern, rough and rockin' edge. Jackie Jae and Spoon Thieves are currently working on incorporating original songs into their act, so be on the lookout for their next CD!
