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. 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. Additional past performances include BB King’s in New York, Minton’s in Harlem, Philadelphia’s South Kitchen, Fillmore Jazz Festival, and San Jose Jazz Summer Fest.
Critics praised Gage’s 2016 debut album, Siren Songs, with All About Jazz raving that “the highlight is Gage’s genuinely gifted vocals” and AFROPUNK adding that Gage “establishes herself firmly as one of the most vital artists in the jazz world.”
