Jacnique / Press

““Rise In Love, has a breezy, island feel to it, perfect for contemporary radio listening. The soft and ethereal vocals on the track are reminiscent of the great Brazilian singers, like Flora Purim, who enchanted the jazz and fusion scene in the 80’s and 90’s. Jacnique’s voice serves as an R&B counterpoint instrument over a Brazilian/Latin feel. “The title track, “Rise In Love,” really means a lot to me, because when I first started writing this record, I was really going through a lot,” she said. “I was going through the end of a marriage and the beginning of a divorce and really pushing through as an independent artist and doing shows, being in the public eye.” But that process was not easy. “I had to constantly put a smile on my face and get through adversity as best I could,” she reflected. “And so to me, “Rise In Love” is a very powerful statement itself and the title track to the record is about rising in love and not letting life cloud your view of l”

““Rise In Love happens to be one of our favorite smooth jazz pieces by Jacnique. Jacnique’s voice fulfills your ears and soul with her pure, natural and organic vocals. Rise In Love is smooth, relaxing and warming at the same time. It sort of gives you that Caribbean feel on the beach, enjoying the ocean view while bathing in the sun, drinking a margarita. The hit single, Rise In Love, off Jacnique’s Deluxe EP happened to catch the attention of her fans and more. The triple award winning vocalist reveals herself to be one of the most powerful Jazz vocalists in the business. With a sweet and sensuous voice, she knows how to get her message across while making the experience fun, exciting and memorable. Prepare to discover a new star, Jacnique. For the 2014 Artist In Music Awards, Jacnique was nominated for “Best Jazz Artist”. She’s been blessed with a voice that can soothe and heal the soul."”

““You used to be one of my favorite places” The opening line from her opening song. They say first impressions are lasting. So I am writing this review from my first impression. Jacnique deserves a good listen! Her sound is totally current, a trace of Lady Badu, but unique in her approach while her vocal delivery can carry strong traces of Billie Holiday’s infamous pitch-bending drawl. Special mention goes to her acoustic guitarist. Combining that with lyrics that include “gotta get out of this Toy Box, I’m saying goodbye to you”.. you have music that is smooth, and Jazz/Neo in feel but intelligent, sophisticated. She is spiritual without being churchy on her inspirational songs, and sultry without being profane on her romantic ones. Have a listen, you will probably do as I did. Just sit in silence for a minute and absorb what you just experienced. “Let me love you, and then? Let me love you all over again”.. Good, huh?”
