About Jackie Barnett
Hilton, United Kingdom
Jackie Barnett’s love of music began in the living room of her parent’s terraced house in a small village in Cambridgeshire, England, where she would sing into an old reel-to-reel tape recorder. By the age of 13 she was singing in a choir at Kings College in Cambridge.
From those early days of structured live performance, her enthusiasm to entertain grew and her strong desire to perform live led her to front many bands of all styles. With her charismatic performances, she has played at both intimate and large venues including various music festivals.
Barnett’s collaboration with Tony Ginger meant their shared wealth of experience motivated them to write songs that reflect a kaleidoscope of emotion. Inspired to write with the passion and honesty of Springsteen combined with feminine warmth, they weave a myriad of sentiment that echo’s reality.
“Natural” is Barnett’s debut EP the origins of which come straight out of the country/rock tradition, which lends itself to the storyteller Barnett fosters in her coruscating performances. Making “Natural” was creatively liberating, using musicians she had previously not worked with has brought a refreshing feel to her music.
The release of the much-awaited new Wheatfield’s album in December 2006 saw the reunion of the Ginger/Barnett song writing partnership. With the original musicians from the hugely successful Natural EP, with additional new members to the band has ensured this album has a truly traditional country theme to it.
