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.
With over 25,000 monthly listeners on Spotify, 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, due out later this year. And this summer, Jaclyn’s new single “Psychic” is an energetic, horn filled, retro-pop experience, is set to release on August 2nd- Pre Save available July 24th. Influenced by classic soul, r&b, Amy Winehouse, Alicia Keys, and the contemporary funk of Bruno Mars, 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 rehearsing her material with her band, or training with legendary 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. Upcoming performances are being planned for Fall of 2019 in New York City.
