Back To the Roots Tour 2021
Acclaimed expat Kiwi singer-songwriter Jackie Bristow is hitting the road in her homeland New Zealand/Aotearoa for a Back To the Roots tour.
The Nashville-based native of Gore has spent her time outside the United States putting the finishing touches on her new album, Outsider, recorded mostly in her musical collaborator Mark Punch’s Nashville studio before the world closed its doors due to Covid.
She’ll be unveiling her gorgeous new single, Without You, during a busy national tour of ambient boutique venues.
Without You is an engaging, endearing earworm of a track, propelled by a jaunty, swinging beat, set off by a striking strings arrangement courtesy of Nashville dream team, producer Rick Price and orchestrator Kristin Wilkinson, and played beautifully by an all-star cast of Nashville’s hippest studio musos.
Her accessible tunes, relateable lyrics and intimate, soulful vocal delivery have made her an audience favourite in venues huge and small throughout the US and Europe, where she is equally mesmerising as a solo artist, in her duo with Mark Punch or with a rocking band behind her.
The sublime quality of Jackie’s songwriting and her genuine, down-to-earth Kiwi personality have led to her sharing stages with an impressive resumé of apex artists, from Bonnie Raitt and Boz Skaggs to Chris Isaak and Foreigner.
In 2021 Kiwi audiences will have the chance to experience Jackie Bristow at her most engaging – up close and personal.
