At once heartfelt and sophisticated, Jackie Bristow combines subtle but beautiful melodies and hooks that hypnotize the listener, demand complete surrender and then stick around with the backbone of a real friend.

New Zealand born transplanted to the United States with a guitar, a suitcase and a song. Jackie Bristow travels light but packs a heavy punch.

Jackie has had the honor to be the opening act for many of her musical heroes. Opening for Bonnie Raitt in New Zealand on the 2013 Slipstream tour was a dream come true and internationally-acclaimed guitar legend Tommy Emmanuel 2011. Jackie and Tommy played to sold-out theatres across the America.

Jackie has also been the opening act for Marc Cohn, John Oates, John Waite, Bettye Lavette, B.J Thomas, Joe Ely, Marcia Ball, Charlie Robison, Rick Springfield, Bob Schneider, and Jimmy Lafave, Euge Groove, Ruthie Foster, Howard Jones, Herbert Gronemeyer, Phoebe Snow, Art Garfunkel, Daniel Lanois, Madeline Peryoux, Jimmy Webb, Paul Williams, and Shawn Mullins.

Jackie live performance has captivated audiences. One reviewer of her tour opening for Tommy Emmanuel 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.
