Jacqui was originally a classically trained clarinettist but started singing during her three years at the Leeds College of Music, where she also studied saxophone and flute, and then joined the one-year post-graduate jazz course at the Guildhall School of Music And Drama. Shortly after leaving the Guildhall Jacqui joined the National Youth Jazz Orchestra as their vocalist and spent the next four years touring and also recording with them – including the vocal album ‘Looking Forward Looking Back’. Since 1993 Jacqui has worked with the jazz/funk band Shakatak, both as backing vocalist and sax player on several tours and albums. Described by The Yorkshire Post as “…a singer of warmth, poise and intelligence whose smoky voice is a pleasure to listen to” Jacqui is a must for lovers of high quality jazz singing.
