Jackie Scott is a native of Virginia and received her early training singing in the baptist church. Music played an important part in the worship experience and after singing gospel for 20 years, she felt a call to the blues. Her first introduction to live blues took place at a Buddy Guy concert followed by seeing BB King live. After seeing such phenomenal performances she was convinced singing the blues was what she wanted to do. Her quest to learn more about the blues lead her to the steamy windows of the windy city, Chicago.
After visiting Chicago to attend a wedding, she heard Chicago blues live in its element and was determined to capture the sound that swept her off her feet. That decision lead to many future trips to Chicago, honing her craft as a vocalist and entertainer. Her travels to different parts of the country have enabled her to meet new friends and engulf some of the rich blues heritage that every region has to offer. Touring trips to Mississippi, Lousiana, California, Memphis and North Carolina opened many doors and afforded her the opportunity to do what she does best...sing the blues. Koko Taylor, Ruth Brown, Alberta Hunter and Big Mama Thornton are some of the many influences that have allowed Jackie to carve out a unique style of her won.
This project is a labor of love that extends beyond Jackie''s humble roots in Virginia. This effort bought forth Lil Ray Neal, son of Baton Rouge''s harmonica great, Raful Neal. Lil Ray Neal has played with Big Mama Thornton, BB King, Bobby Bland, Lil MIlton and a host of other blues greats. He was so taken by her powerful voice he agreed to come to Virginia to record with her. When asked why he made the trek to Virginia he simply replied..."it was the voice...reminded me of Big Mama Thornton....you''ll be hearing about her soon." The old adage that says "blues is the root" is evident as she vocally delivers with power and conviction.
Mark Hopkins (slide & lead guitar), Tommie Fisher (keyboards), Dave Holland (bass guitar) and Brandon Frazier (drummer) make up the power packing band, The Housewreckers. Collectively they''ve been playing for over 80 years, touching just about all genres of music. Their musical talents, varied backgounds and influences helped to make this first project a special one. Bob Albertgotti (harmonica) and Bill Kelly (bass) of the Blues Empacts jumped on board and added their special blend of flavor to this project to make it one cookin'' pot blues. Pull up the table and grab you a bowl of blues !!!
