A velvet voice, rich as smooth wine... Jackie Gage is the Sade of jazz, possessing a musical grace that channels singers of decades past by mixing elements of jazz, soul, and R&B into her music. With praise from AFROPUNK, All About Jazz, and Singersroom celebrating her debut album "Siren Songs", hear why her music nods to the future of R&B and jazz.
Fresh from her sold out album release at Yoshi's in Oakland, Gage has created a musical identity in her own vein. She recently relocated to New York, where she has already made prominent waves in her field; Jackie has opened for the likes of The Brand New Heavies and El Debarge, performing to sold-out audiences at BB King's. She honed her craft during a month-long residency at the legendary Minton's in Harlem, and has found successes and inspiration performing with East Coast legends like Marc Cary.
Though rooted in the jazz vein, she has also been heard performing with LA's electronic disco producer Captain Supernova, as well as rapper Lyrics Born. She can also be seen visiting California regularly, touring the state from Harlow's in Sacramento, down to Catalina Jazz Club and Blue Whale in Los Angeles.
Her music has been heard internationally, from KCSM, KCRW and Hawaii's CUH, all the way to Jazz FM in England.
As a 2014 Jazz Search West finalist, she has been seen at nationally recognized venues Yoshi's Oakland, the Freight and Salvage in Berkeley, and The Sound Room in Oakland--with notable past performances at the Fillmore Jazz Festival (2015), San Jose Jazz Summer Fest (2016, 2013, 2012), and Berkeley Juneteenth (2015, 2014) among many other venues.
