Album Notes
Based on her multiple careers, her many talents, and her insatiable energy to take on challenges like her life depends on it, Jacqui Brown has never really been afraid of change

At 22-years-old, she moved from Ontario, Canada, to California where she signed with the Wilhelmina Modeling Agency in Los Angeles, and worked across the board acting and modeling in the US, Europe, and Mexico. It was during that time she met and married the love of her life, Paul Brown, and yes, she it still married to him! Paul’s music career has spanned more than 40 years as a producer and recording artist!

After stepping away from showbiz to raise her two children, she ventured off to college for the first time in her 40’s to study journalism, which landed her a job as an ace reporter for The Los Angeles Times. That was also the decade she began writing books, and boy, did she write! Twenty-five books, most of which helped her recover her own life as she dealt with an addicted child. She also began her life-coaching career, intertwining her coaching with healing workshops she hosts that serve women struggling to find themselves again, many of those being mothers of drug addicted children.

Flash forward another decade, her undeniably funny, and sometimes raucous humor could not be contained and so she took to the stage to do stand-up comedy, entertaining numerous audiences! Her next decade gave her another one of those ‘what else is there’ moments. She sat down at the piano one day, even though, as she claims, she does not really know how to play piano, and she wrote a song for her daughter that caught her husband’s ear and they ended up recording that song. ‘Somebody’s Child’, a hauntingly beautiful tune, written from an addict’s point of view, landed on her husbands 10th CD called Uptown Blues.

“In all our 40 years, I had never heard Jacqui sing,” Paul said. “Our work lives had always been independent of each other and I never dreamed we’d be working on music together at this point in our lives, but life is full of surprises. Once you hear her CD, you’ll understand why that first song blew me away.”

Their collaboration resulted in Jacqui’s debut CD called Love Love Love, which will be released this summer on Woodward Avenue Records.

As a singer-songwriter, Brown says she’s inspired to write whatever comes to her whether it’s an inspirational song, a kick-ass dance song, or a song about loss and the nature of moving on.

“There are multiple reasons I wrote the single, Why Oh Why. So many people are facing changes in the world such as it is and many of the women (and some men) I work with, have or are, facing such big challenges due to losses of partners, children, homes, and jobs, and many are having to go it alone. I think this song represents all their words and sentiments about how hard it is to face life as it presents itself to them,” said Brown. “Working with my incredibly talented husband on this project is a blessing on so many levels. Our children are both grown so we have this new time to spend together. Creating music that touches people’s souls brings a whole new intimacy to our long life together. Am I a lucky girl? You bet your ass I am!”

Her debut single, Why Oh Why hits the airways May 27, 2019.
