For this show we introduce you to the very talented Jackie Gray. Emerging artist, Jackie Gray, brings a combination of sultry vocals and piano mastery to her debut album, creating a genre all her own. An authentic singer/songwriter, Gray’s music is a tribute to the vintage-era songstresses of the past. Her soulful yet torch/jazz-inspired voice has a timeless sound that was made for both an antique gramophone and a modern radio.
A Nashville transplant, Gray ventured from Seattle to the Music City in 2011, originally anticipating breaking into country music. After teaming up with 27-year music veteran and producer, Jim Reilley, she spent the last several years crafting a style that blends decades and genres into one sound.
With smoky, impassioned singing and an updated nod to the great musical standards, Jackie weaves a tapestry of intelligent lyrics and delightful original ,yet familiar music. Host Mitch Ruth, will ask Jackie about the journey to her unique style, the differences between making music in the Pacific North West and Nashville, and what is coming up in her musical career. Mitch may also get to ask the fabled question, "If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it; what is the best beginner piano method book to use with a six-year old?"
