Jackie Leven

his biog is just stunning & large & cant be cut down as there is soo much to cram-in, so believe me when we say this man is a fantastic entertainer without peer. Here's his LISTENING LINE from the 1950s to 2005:

ancient songs of Fife/protestant hymns/Lightnin Hopkins/Big Bill Broonzy/Blind Lemon Jefferson/The Beatles/Them/Fontella Bass/The Pretty Things/The Animals/Jimi Hendrix/Bob Dylan/The Byrds/Miles Davies/Electric Prunes/The Fugs/Bert Jansch/John Renbourn/Davy Graham/Spirit/Stan Tracey/Nina Simone/Roland Kirk/Moondog/Aphrodite's Child/Tim Hardin/Van Morrison/Annette Peacock/Linda Jones/Judee Sill/Nat King Cole/Chet Baker/Sex Pistols/The Indestructible Sound of Soweto/Feodor Chaliapin/Mary Margaret O' Hara/David Thomas/Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan/The Magnetic Fields/Amy Winehouse/Johnny Cash...


Hayley Hutchinson is touring all over the place with Jackie & is currently a Bob Harris favourite. Her dad is an ex member of David Bowie's band so the credentials are just fine. here's a couple of quotes from her website:-

This is an album which deserves to fly off the shelves. A truly remarkable talent Sound Generator


Live, this singer-songwriter is one part Hoxton hipster in her neckerchief and brown vest to two parts folk traditionalist thanks to her lilting voice which exudes a composite of sorrow and desire, like a love starved Joni Mitchell Uncut Magazine


Hayley may only be in her early twenties, but shes a million miles away from the disposable pop peddled by so many of her contemporaries. The way things are going, her career looks set to be anything but blue Up Country Magazine


Every song on Independently Blue highlights Hayley Hutchinsons sweet and natural way with a sparkling tune Independent On Sunday


Hayley Hutchinson on the evidence of this fine single, understands her craft sufficiently to recognise how true a record can ring when completely unencumbered by knowing artifice. Heres the Love is a Carol King ish confection with chord changes where youd expect them and a happy lyric about being happy. A lovely thing The Guardian Track Of The Week
