Yet that reservation was never heard in her voice, which sang free and loud across the main stage. She was utterly charming.
A singer-songwriter out of Sydney, Australia, Jacklin’s music speaks to the shy girl with the powerful voice in us all. Her songs are kind, yet intimidating. She’s reserved, yet she knows who she is.

Ahhh Haaaaaaaa, Ahhhh Haaaaaaa!” that electrified the crowd as they sang along…”
