Hear the Music. Feel the Passion.
From the time she could walk and gurgle, Jacqueline Lovely has been an entertainer. In grade school she performed as part of the school choir and put on shows in her garage for the neighborhood children. She taught at a YMCA Arts camp at 15, and moved into musical theatre in Grade nine, landing key roles in the school’s annual musicals.
In her teen years, Jacqueline was influenced by Aerosmith, ACDC, Led Zeppelin, and HEART. Her first band, Mazak, a heavy metal band, was formed when she was 17 and played shows in south central Ontario.
In her 20's she formed Uncensored. In UNCENCORED, Jacqueline showcased her strong vocals and her natural talent as a charismatic front woman playing sets of original and cover music in Toronto’s A list rock clubs.
In June of 2009, Jacqueline began singing a combination of blues and folk, inspired by time with friends at the Mariposa Music Festival. In August, 2009, Jacqueline began a 3 year duo project with hobby guitarist, Vince Marcheson. As "Alligator Boots" they quickly rose in the local indie market, and playing regular club shows in and around Barrie, Ontario from October 2009 thru Aug 2012.
Jacqueline's first folk rock originals were debuted at The Trophy Case in Bradford, Ontario, Canada on February 12th, 2010.
In late February that same year, an unexpected work commitment had Vince out of the country. Jacqueline was hot to record the new music, so while Vince was away, Jacqueline collaborated with ex-Frozen Ghost guitarist, Bill Oulster, writing 7 new songs.
Four of the songs Bill and Jacqueline completed together are currently available for streaming in DEMO format on Jacqueline’s web page via, Reverbnation. The masters have yet to be completed, but with the reunion of Bill and Jacqueline in the summer of 2012 new re-mixes may be available soon.
In March 2010, Alligator Boots auditioned and won a spot in Barrie’s Street Performers Program. The program, run through Barrie’s Cultural Department, increased their visibility and provided the opportunity to play a number festivals and cultural events around the County. They re-auditioned and were accepted into the program for 2011 and 2012.
In April 2010, Roger's TV did a profile of Alligator Boots as part of the Simcoe Living Show which aired from April 2nd through April 8th, 2010. The piece featured an interview with Jacqueline and the debut of a new original called, "Live in the Light" written with ex-frozen ghost guitar player, Bill Oulster. Jacqueline appeared again, live on Roger's Daytime Show, May 27th, 2010. With guest guitar player Norm Percy, she performed the Alligator Boots original, "Too Soon To Say Goodbye," to help promote the up-coming Barrie Waterfront festival in May 2010.
Alligator Boots did their first Toronto show at the Legendary Horseshoe Tavern in September 2011. From October 2011 to July 2012, Jacqueline and Vince did a regular Wednesday night appearance at the Aspetta Cafe, in Toronto's Kensington Market, as well as performing bi-weekly in Barrie’s entertainment district.
After the branding changed to "Jacqueline Lovely" the duo increased their social media profiles on Facebook, My space, Reverbnation, Sonicbids, CBC Radio3, Sound click and Utube. Jacqueline began connecting with internet radio and often would log in for live Saturday nights via Maximum Threshold Radio, to gain more exposure for her original music. Jacqueline has also enjoyed a regular rotation on Women of Substance Radio.
At Barrie's New Music Festival in July 2011, after an intimate performance of original music at McReilly's Pub, Jacqueline and Vin took home the award for BEST ROCK INDIE 2011.
In February 2012, a call from drummer Morgan Evans, of Killer Bee, got Jacqueline a shot at her first in professional studio experience. Jacqueline can now be heard singing background vocal tracks on the new, "Hell and Back" CD release from Swedish Heavy metal rockers KILLER BEE. The CD was released October 22nd, 2012.
Hot to capitalize on the in-studio experience and get some of her own original music on a professional disk, Jacqueline and Vince took to the studio in March 2012, recording, "LOVE ME." This 4 song EP produced by Jacqueline, was released on July 16th, 2012. All of the songs from the EP are available on her web site.

It was their third year as professional street performers in the City of Barrie.
2013 has exploded into the best year ever for this talented rock singer. Parting ways with Duo guitarist, Vince in August 2012, Jacqueline began preparing for a solo career and showcased her talents at a variety of open mike events. When offers started coming in for her to play bigger shows, as a supporting act, Jacqueline began looking for musicians to form a touring band. Her new band, Revelation 17, is currently in rehearsals and will begin playing live shows July 20th, 2013.
Despite her current status as independent and self represented, Jacqueline's first CD, “LOVE ME”, has been distributed across Canada and also in Chicago, Los Angeles, Texas, Arizona, Norway, Sweden, Germany, Switzerland, Guyana, India, Africa and across the UK.
