After Jaclyn Manfredi performed at the acclaimed Apollo Theatre and Carnegie Hall in New York City at 17, she auditioned for The Voice and made it through to the second round. Clearly, her talent had not gone unnoticed. She then won the IMTA national singing talent competition in 2017, and released three songs that began to shape her sound in the way that authentic artists often journey towards in the process of discovering who they really are.
Music fans are starting to take notice of Jaclyn’s rich tone, and soulful, jazzy melodies. A SONY/ATV backed Motown tribute project has asked Jaclyn to contribute two Motown cover songs, released in November, 2019. Jaclyn’s 2019 EP, “Psychic”, is an energetic, horn filled, retro-pop experience. Influenced by classic soul, r&b, Amy Winehouse, Alicia Keys, and and contemporaries like Jorja Smith, Jaclyn is funneling all of her influences into something that at once sounds old and new. Produced by Alex Houton of AHM Media and mixed by 6X Grammy Award winner, Brian Vibberts, Jaclyn’s voice ties together old school sounds with a a contemporary slant.
When Jaclyn’s not training with vocal coach Don Lawrence (Lady Gaga, Christina Aguilera, Whitney Houston), you can find her sitting at a piano weaving melodies and lyrics about her experiences. New singles are set for release in early 2020 and shows will follow.
