Gore born, Nashville based singer-songwriter Jackie Bristow, began singing and writing songs at an early age in Gore and first performed with her sister in their school church choir. The 'Bristow Sisters' toured the South Island of New Zealand making a name for themselves. Jackie's talent and songwriting skills saw her establish herself in the United States where she has been living and performing since 2005.
Jackie has continued writing and performing in North America and around the world with several albums under her name. She was on tour in New Zealand with her Blue Moon Rising tour when Lockdown prevented her return to Nashville.
Jackie’s live performances captivate audiences. One reviewer of her show on the Tommy Emmanuel tour wrote: “Opening for a musical giant like Emmanuel would seem a daunting task, but Bristow was relaxed as her soulfully-seductive melodies reverberated within the auditorium. Her beautiful voice and earnest songs resonated with the audience, and they applauded her eagerly. Near the end of the show, Bristow joined Emmanuel on stage for an amazing duet that received a standing ovation.”
Jackie’s songs have been used repeatedly in Australian and New Zealand film and television hit shows such as “Go Girls,” “The Secret Life of Us,” “Home and Away,” “Outrageous Fortune,” “Shortland Street,” and “Go Big.” Her original song “This is Australia” won Tourism Australia’s nationwide competition and was featured in its worldwide promotional campaigns for three years. Songs from the “Crazy Love” and “Freedom” albums were programmed into rotation at 7,000 Starbucks locations nationwide in the US.
