Bio

SINGLES Ladies' Luck AND Too, Somebody OFFICIAL GLOBAL DIGITAL RELEASE Thursday March 18th on iTUNES (Sugarrush/IODA) NEW ALBUM *LADIES' LUCK* FOR RELEASE April 19th (TO♥REKORDZ/Vitamin + Sugarrush) Watch LADIES' LUCK video clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZG-XLyKjbvo Australian artist Jackie Marshall spent her early teens sneaking into 90s Indy Rock gigs and teaching herself to play a borrowed guitar by deciphering Bob Dylan charts of songs she'd never heard in real life. Still in her teens when she concurrently discovered writers the likes of Bruce Chatwin, Jack Kerouac, Hunter S. Thompson, Tom Robbins and Kurt Vonnegut, Jackie wasted no time in deciding to hit the road for a life of real hitch-hikin' adventure. Thereafter she added Beat era Jazz and 60s era Rock and Folk to her musical tastes and started writing songs. Weary from the road one year, she shacked up in a dilapidated Queenslander behind the XXXX brewery in Brisbane with alt country aficionado and musician-in-his-own-right Chris Pickering, his little brother Vinnie, and Vesna Zornik the Slovenian super diva; during which time she caught a whiff of the tail of all this new-country malarky, not to mention an incessant barrage of fermenting hops. She released her Australian Music Prize shortlisted debut album FIGHT n'FLIGHT, to national critical acclaim late in 2006, and an official career in genre-defiant writing, performing and recording of songs was born. An incorrigible journeywoman, Jackie has finally found time to make a new album. LADIE'S LUCK will be released in Australia in 2010. "Too Somebody" is its first single, recorded in Queensland's premier new independent recording studio THE ARK, and produced by FIGHT n'FLIGHT producer BEN TOLLIDAY, with the mysterious and venerable BLACK ALLES BAND.

I like this track, its strange, as pop tunes go. You take the melody some intresting places.

She's got music in her veins that's for sure. There's a song called "The Ugly Man" off her new album that is great too. I hear Mia Dyson, Tim Rogers, The Drones and a don't f**k with me attitude that is hard to ignore and be excited by.
