JACKIE DEE – CONTEMPLATING LIFE
‘Contemplating Life’ is the new single from Helensburgh NSW based artist Jackie Dee. The philosophical track comes from the artist’s own pen and she tells us, “We are all touched, moved, angered by the things we hear about in the news each day and it’s easy to despair. I wanted this song to have universal meaning, reaching all of us who sit and ponder the current state of our planet and society but at the same time the song encourages optimism and at its core it’s about the importance of our relationships”.
The single has been bought to life for the small screen by Josh Favaloro of The Filmery – check it out HERE
‘Contemplating Life’ is the first single to be released from Jackie’s third album, “Six String Heart” – her most personable album to date. Juggling her time as a family therapist and a singer-songwriter, this new release sees Jackie fearless in tackling the tougher topics including domestic violence and mental illness. Produced by the award-winning Matt Fell, the album will be released 17 February to follow an official single launch and album preview show at the 2017 Tamworth Country Music Festival.
Described as sometimes a little ‘Country Belle’ and sometimes a little ‘Rock Chick’, the mum of two describes her style as coastal country (living where the bush meets the sea) sung with a voice that has been likened to Faith Hill and Mollie McClymont. It was late 2007, whilst penning songs for her alt/country duo Dee-tour when Jackie decided to try her luck at a regional song competition. Judge Colin Buchanan awarded her first prize for her song ‘A Few Wrong Turns’, a song about making those big important mistakes in life that teach us the most.
Jackie released her debut EP “Tide” in 2010 and in 2011 the track that awarded Jackie first prize was also featured on ABC Music’s ‘Country 4 Mum’ compilation. With Matt Fell once again in the producer’s chair, 2013 saw the release of her second studio album. The aptly titled “Doors & Windows” gives us an intimate view of the sensitive relationship this artist has with lyrics and melody, heart and mind. Two tracks from this release made the APRA Top 30 finalist list (country genre) in the 2013 APRA Professional Development Awards and Jackie received nominations in the Music Oz Awards that same year.
