Jukebox Mind is sharing an exclusive update about Jackie Apostel…and it’s not what you expect. In conversation with the artist, we spoke about her journey, finding her sound, and much more!
Songwriter to the stars, Jackie has occasionally put out her own tracks as an artist, yet was never too keen on the idea. A year ago she announced her first EP “The Reformation” and released “Anything for U” as a start off single. The pandemic of course delayed kick-off plans but that might’ve been the best thing to happen, she says.
“It gave me a chance to really find a sound I love. I know this isn’t what anyone’s expecting but it’s so raw, so me. It finally feels like a project. It’s something that I want people to listen to from start to finish, it tells a story.”
We had the to sit down and ask a few questions:
Q. The coming up release is called: “The Reformation A Side- A Trip on the Relationship.” Does that mean there will be a B Side?
Jackie: “Of course. A Side is one story, B side is another. It’s a journey. I want people to be able to put it on be taken through a relationship almost. I’m the kind of person that has very polar moods so some songs are cheeky and direct, others are calm, loving, and sad.”
Q. We had the chance to listen through the EP as an exclusive sneak peek before you got here. Musically, the comparisons we are getting range from Harry Styles to Billie Eilish. How would you describe your style? Who is it similar to?
Jackie: “Honestly, those are huge names you just mentioned. I think rock has always been super present in popular music but now more than ever. It almost interacts with all genres. I think I pulled from a bunch of current artists but mainly the melodic inspirations were actually between 60/70’s doo-wop and 80’s rock. LYRICALLY though I kept it real current. That’s the contrast I wanted. I wanted to sing the way we/ I actually talk.”
Keep an eye out on her social media and music channels @jackieapostel, she” ll be announcing the release date and some exciting surprises in the coming days. A lot of points are still to be seen and made but one thing is for sure. The girls a rockstar!
