After opening for Tommy Emmanuel's current USA tour, Jackie Bristow returns to New Zealand for a 14-date solo tour to celebrate the release of her 4th studio album Shot of Gold, out on February 5th.
At once heartfelt and sophisticated, her 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.
Jackie says, “Shot of Gold, is an album of real stories and experiences in my life - songs of struggle, joy, love, loss and healing. I was living in Austin Texas when I wrote this album and was inspired by southern blues and country roots music and the people I met in great live music scene. I stepped away from trying to write commercial mainstream music and wrote stories from my heart and my life. This is why we recorded this album with raw and sparse production built around my live solo performances."
