Jackie Oates

The release of the album ‘The Violet Hour’ in early 2008 marked the start of what has been a remarkable two years for Jackie Oates.

Her decision to leave the Mercury-nominated Rachel Unthank & The Winterset to pursue a solo career looked like a brave decision at the time but has proved to be inspired. Jackie was soon after nominated as Best Newcomer in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

The release of the album ‘The Violet Hour’ in early 2008 marked the start of what has been a remarkable two years for Jackie Oates.

Her decision to leave the Mercury-nominated Rachel Unthank & The Winterset to pursue a solo career looked like a brave decision at the time but has proved to be inspired. Jackie was soon after nominated as Best Newcomer in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. A swathe of glowing national reviews came with the release of ‘The Violet Hour’ soon after, with the album going on to be one of Mojo’s top ten folk albums of the year in 2008. The new year saw Jackie walking away with a remarkable two BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards including the Horizon Award for Best Newcomer, the award which had eluded her the year before. Jackie Oates, solo artist, had arrived.

Newly signed to One Little Indian Records, on September 7th 2009 Jackie will release the highly anticipated follow-up to ‘The Violet Hour’.

‘Hyperboreans’ is the coming-of-age album for Jackie Oates. Produced by her brother Jim Moray and featuring a title track written for her by Alasdair Roberts, it sizzles with a new confidence and maturity. Her uniquely beautiful vocal comes to the fore throughout the album adding a new freshness to traditional songs including ‘The Pleasant Month Of May’ and ‘Young Leonard’. There is a show-stopping and deeply moving rendition of Past Caring based on a poem by Australian Henry Lawson as well as a joyfully breezy cover of ‘Birthday’ by The Sugarcubes. « hide
