Next concert: Oct. 9 – Jackie Bristow

Jackie Bristow was born in New Zealand, transplanted to Australia, and now resides in Nashville, USA.

She brings a collection of songs with solid melodies, hooks and driving guitar rhythms, and a warm, endearing personality and presence that have captivated audiences on three continents and put her on a steady rise.

A lengthy tour with Tommy Emmanuel in 2011 exposed Jackie to a broader audience, and it was further expanded in 2013, when she opened every date down under for Bonnie Raitt. Other opening slots on tours and one-off dates for Emmanuel, Steve Miller, Jimmy Webb, Ruthie Foster, Madeline Peyroux and more continued to up her profile.

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 thousands of Starbucks locations nationwide in the U.S.

In 2014, Jackie was awarded New Zealand Southland Music Ambassador of the Year.

After living for stretches in Austin and Los Angeles, Jackie moved to Nashville in 2017, along with her friend and guitar player, Mark Punch.

Last year, Jackie was signed to Kramer Artists, a German booking, promotion and management company, and she recently completed her second lengthy European tour.

This is Jackie’s third time at Tales, and we are delighted to present our friends – Jackie Bristow and Mark Punch – for our Fall series.
