Album Notes
Singer/ songwriter Jacqui Sharkey has continued to attract attention since the release of her first album, ‘A New Dawn’… an album which has received critical acclaim in countries all over the world since its independent release in 2011. ‘A New Dawn’, a 13 track album which is a mix of original songs and covers, has been described as a blend of Americana, Folk and New Country, with a hint of Jazz/pop in Jacqui’s self-composed songs. Her long awaited second album, 'Love And Other Things', produced by Manus Lunny, of celebrated folk/ traditional group, Capercaillie, is a 12 track CD which is a mix of original and cover songs and features some of Ireland, the U.S. and Scotland's finest musicians, including its producer, Manus Lunny and Ewen Vernal, also of Capercaillie and formerly of Deacon Blue, and many others.. Jacqui's second album offers a blend of Mid-Road, Americana Country and Irish/ Celtic Music.

Jacqui is based in Gweedore in the heart of the West Donegal Gaeltacht, a few miles from ‘The Rosses’, where her family are from on both sides. She was raised South of Glasgow in Scotland, where she first found her musical footing as a teenager in the city’s Folk scene. Her musical background is varied in style, as she then went on to front a Donegal Rock & Pop Band as lead singer and keyboard player, but also began “treading the boards” in many leading roles in musical theatre, including ‘Florence’ in ‘Chess’ and ‘Nancy’ in ‘Oliver’. Jacqui’s “recurring jazz phase” also saw her tour theatres as ‘Satine’ in Kyron Bourke’s ‘Carry On Moulin Rouge’ in 2005 as well as perform with California recording artist Gaynel Hodge in 2007 and the Met Jazz Quartet with Saxophonist Gary Cox in 2010.

Jacqui is “blessed” to be from a part of Donegal that is steeped in music and home to some of Ireland’s finest singers, songwriters and musicians. As a result, Jacqui has performed and jammed with a host of Irish artists, including Moya Brennan, Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh, Paul Brady, Manus Lunny, Paddy Casey and Declan O’Rourke, all of whom have inspired and influenced Jacqui’s development as an artist and songwriter in her own right.


"Jacqui Sharkey's warm and tender voice brings me straight to one of my favourite places...Donegal. Whether she applies it to Folk, New Country or Jazz, the spirit of her home place comes through the gorgeous sound she makes. "
Paul Brady, Recording Artist/ Songwriter

"She's as good as it gets. She's as good as the best…”
Gerry Anderson, BBC Radio Ulster

"This lady has a voice in a million. Her lower register is heart melting. Jacqui doesn't sing a song. She lives it. You don't just listen to her words. You live them with her..."
Billy Patterson (Irish folk group, the Pattersons)

"She's got an absolutely cracking voice...this new album is quite a sensational offering. I think she's a lady to be reckoned with....I told you, she is a touch of magic..."

Brian Clough, The American Connection

"Sharkey tackles Randy Goodrum’s unconditional love song, ‘You Needed Me’ from 1978, a much-loved track from her childhood days when raiding her parent’s record collection. It was a #1 hit for Anne Murray in America and gave Irish boy band Boyzone a chart topper in the UK in May 1999. Jacqui’s voice has an uncanny resemblance to the aforementioned Canadian songstress and her lower-register is equally delicious..."
