A Double Bill Of Upcoming Jazz Vocalists: Jackie Gage Quintet + Vanisha Gould Quartet
Jackie Gage is a musical storyteller; her music is emotional, joyous, heart-wrenching, and celebratory. Her debut album Siren Songs found praise from the likes of AFROPUNK, All About Jazz, and Singersroom alike, celebrating her youthful nod to the future of jazz.
Originally from San Jose, California, she recently relocated to New York, where she has already made prominent waves in her field; Jackie has opened for the likes of The Brand New Heavies, Marsha Ambrosious, El Debarge, Eric Benét, and Tony Toni Toné. She honed her craft during a month-long residency at Minton's in Harlem, and also performs with East Coast band leaders Marc Cary and Winard Harper.
Though rooted in the jazz vein, she has also been heard performing with LA's electronic disco producer Captain Supernova, as well as rapper Lyrics Born. She can also be seen visiting California regularly, touring the state from Harlow's in Sacramento, down to Catalina Jazz Club and Blue Whale in Los Angeles. Additional past performances include BB King's in New York, Minton's in Harlem, DC's Howard Theatre, Philadelphia's South Kitchen, The Mint in Los Angeles, Fillmore Jazz Festival, and San Jose Jazz Summer Fest. Jackie was a 2014 Jazz Search West finalist. She is currently a resident artist at the cell in New York.
Her music has been heard internationally, from KCSM, KCRW and Hawaii's CUH, all the way to Jazz FM in England.
More than this, there's an intimate and hushed feeling present in her live concerts. It's as if she's reading your heart, sharing personal memories of love and loss--at times vulnerable, and equally sweet. It's an uplifting show that's not to miss.
