Jackie Findlay has come full circle in her musical career, re-establishing her roots in folk music. The Belleville native attended the Queen’s University programme, studied classical repertoire with some of Canada’s most prominent vocal coaches and has toured the country with a rock band. Currently, Jackie is focusing on her own songwriting which she finds “very creatively satisfying “, re-connecting to that innocent honesty and magic when she first started playing the guitar. Classical influences from formal training, her love for Billie Holiday and the folk heroes, James Taylor, Joni Mitchell and Shawn Phillips, are found in her music. After a long break from performing, Jackie feels prompted to come forth and let her voice be heard in songs of love, loss and concerns for humanity and the planet.
