Singer/Songwriter, Jacquelin Simmers was born and raised in Memphis, TN. Her writing and music has been with her throughout her whole life. She has been told that she has "touched people so much with her music that it brought them to tears and has touched them tremendously."
When Jacquelin was a young child her parents would find her around the house just singing away. She would make songs up on the spot and would make songs up that didn't make sense to anyone. At the age of 12, Jacquelin joined The Crossway Worship Band. As a background singer, she also wrote her first song called, You Are The Only One. That song was put on CWB's second CD called, Amazed. At the age of 14, she wrote her second song called, Pour It Out. That was put on CWB's fourth CD called, Volume 4.
At that time, Jacquelin decided to pick up a guitar and wanted to learn a thing or two. She had help from her father and then piced it up and taught herself basically everything she knows. At 16, Jacquelin wrote Questions. To her, this was the first song she wrote and played on her own. The first place Jacquelin ever played at was at MO's (memphis originals). She had people tell her that she sounded like Alanis Morresette, Janis Joplin, Bethany Dillan, and Jennifer Knapp. Since that time, Jacquelin has performed at Geekers Coffee, St. Judes Target House, The Galloway, The Acoustic Spoon, and The Warehouse. Her hope is to play all over and to be able to say that she has played in that certain place.
Over the past few years, Jacquelin has managed to create her own style. She has managed to take over whatever setting is placed in front of her. She has written many songs since the age of sixteen and Jacquelin, now 18, has named her own favorites. Planes Collide was written when Jacquelin was on her rooftop. Its message is basically telling you to keep your dreams. The chorus says, "Catch a snowflake on your eyelashe before it melts away. And catch a falling star before it goes out, before it goes out in your hand." "As a child you have so many things you want to do and want to be. You have so many wishes you want to come true. The song is telling you to keep wishing and dreaming." Her song, Dreaming Again, is a song written during the process of three days that happened in her life.
Jacquelin writes music in every situation she is put in. She is inspired by so much and so many people. Her music variety ranges from Dredg to James Taylor. Her thoughts and plans fill her life always. Her friends and her family are the heart and soul of why she does what she does. Her prayers and desires help her to keep going. Her love keeps her mind hoping and wanting and her heart always keeps her singing.
Jacquelin has recorded a little CD that is 5 dollars. You can purchase this CD at the next show she performs at. On it has her favorites, Planes Collide, Dreaming Again, Twilight, and others. Be sure to come and pick up a copy.
"Take care and keep the music flowing." - Jacquelin Simmers
