“...the song (I'm the Queen) compares the glitz and glamour of being the monarch squirrelled away in her castle, with the charm of domesticity, backyards, and minivans. This story is told against a backdrop of groovy neo-soul, featuring all the oohs and ahs a lover of 60’s soul music could possibly want.....The video emphasizes just how tongue in cheek the song is, and Jackie K’s performance really makes the sense of humour behind the lyric shine. ”
I had a great time speaking to Brayan Gribbin over the summer for the All Music Matters N'At Podcast!
Lots of different music related topics covered here. Hope you'll check it out!
“"Sister Of Stone" from Saskatchewan, Canada-based indie folk singer-songwriter Jackie K, is a rather emotional single which is rather cinematic and vocally stunning. ” - Llewelyn Screen
“She’s [Jackie K} a great storyteller. Some songs sound like classic country, the way it’s meant to be. Some sound more upbeat, leaning into Rock and Roll and even show tunes. All of it is brilliant storytelling, and she belongs on one of your playlists.” - Wrong Track Records
“We think that we could have published this [Dandelions Everywhere] last Friday and said it was a cover of an obscure Lee Hazlewood or maybe Jimmy Webb song and most people would have accepted that. There’s certainly something off-kilter about this upbeat folksong. There’s a Seventies pop-optimism about it too that is quite infectious.” - Jonathan Baird
