Jackie Bristow announces the release of 'Whistle Blowin' - the second single from her forthcoming album Shot of Gold, out February 5th.

At once heartfelt and sophisticated, Jackie's songs combine subtle but beautiful melodies and hooks that hypnotise the listener, demanding complete surrender then sticking around like the backbone of a real friend. 

'Whistle Blowin' is no exception - an elegantly restrained ballad which begins with a melancholy plucked banjo and weaves in washes of acoustic and pedal steel, spotlighting the clarity of Bristow's plaintive voice as she sets the scene:

Summers gone and Winter's coming on / I can feel the cold front blowin' / and I don't see the fog lifting

Listen to 'Whistle Blowin' here.

The accompanying video was beautifully shot and directed by Mark Tierney in and around Los Angeles and features Bristow roaming desert backdrops, train stations and coastal surrounds - the sun beaming down continuously, mirroring the sombre warmth of the song.

In celebration of her album release, Bristow begins her NZ tour on February 6th.
