Jackie Bristow


Singer-songwriter Jackie Bristow has described the career-defining moves that took her from New Zealand to Sydney and later to Los Angeles and Austin as massive and brave. She wasn’t lying.

“I was my own pathfinder,” Bristow told AudioCulture. “To make that move and big jump from Gore to Sydney, and then Sydney to Los Angeles – big moves, but they opened up a whole new life for me and I met and worked with some amazing people. Music has taken me places I never dreamed possible.”
