IndiePulse Artist Spotlight: Saving Jackie
I recently had the joy of checking out some great music by a band called Saving Jackie, recently, there have bee some new groups fronted by female vocalists, many Hard Rock / Metal acts that are verging in on a male dominated genre, but Saving Jackie is really something new and fresh, fronted by Jenny 4C Ramirez, this group is amazingly hot, if Rage Against ever needed a female lead, she is the one, aggressive lyrically but with a finesse and grace that is right there.
Musically Saving Jackie is solid, well timed rhythms and a collection of talented artists that take you on a free ride to glory.
Jenny & Antonio, a Brother/Sister duo, and John Cortez are all former members of the original Rock/Rap Band Jackie On Acid (JOA). JOA was formed in late August 1998 and played throughout Texas, opening up for National groups, including Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Papa Roach, 2 Live Crew, Bowling for Soup, Fu Manchu, Skatenigs, Union Underground, and L7. During their five year venture, JOA released a self-titled LP with popular songs such as Stitched Lips and Flake. They were featured in numerous media publications such as the San Antonio Current, Express News, The Edge Magazine and Meltdown Magazine. On July 3, 2003, JOA played their last farewell bash at Sin 13 Bar, selling out on all their merchandise.
Entering into a new era, in early 2019, the three former members of JOA reunited with a new vibe to create Saving Jackie, a rap/rock group with a message of redemption for new life. Alongside former members, Front Woman/Vocalist Jenny 4C Ramirez, Drummer Antonio, and Bass Player John Cortez are new members, Jerry Ryan on Rhythm Guitar/Backing Vocals and Rick Garza on Lead Guitar/Backing Vocals. After encountering life’s struggles and strife, the group is back to share a message of how they overcame life’s major trials. Their new EP brings a rocking out message of victory and hope with songs like My Faith is Larger, My Everything and Silence the Storm.
Saving Jackie were recently interviewed by Metal Mars, Robbs MetalWorks ~ El Mero Metal, and Walter Cardozo of #Jesus Es Mi Rock from Chile, South America. Their recent EP also received reviews from Mike Geiner of BTTW Church, “Saving Jackie is a welcomed breath in the music industry.” From Bryan Blake of Vinyl Lollipops, “This band seriously kicks the gluteus Maximus and leaves you wanting more.”
The EP was a self-titled release produced & engineered by Damian Refuge and mixed and mastered by Clifton Miles of Stone Creek Sound Studio in Helotes, Texas.
Saving Jackie has performed at the Bang Bang Bar, Zombies Rock Bar, Fitzgerald’s Bar, Facebook LIVE ExodoFest from Mexico and Facebook LIVE LowFest from Columbia. Including a Video Presentation for Bora Curtir Show based in Brazil. Saving Jackie signed with KingSide Record Label.
Keep an eye out for their new EP and next high intensity show.
