The Jackie Myers Band is a singer-songwriter style band with heavy jazz, blues and funk influences. Starting out in December of 2009, the
Jackie Myers Band produced their first self-released album, Count to Three. They have had some local success at Momo’s; one of Austin’s finest venues. They have been playing once a month there and have just celebrated their cd-release this past July. They are also starting to be a favorite at Romeo’s, an intimate venue down in South Austin complete with a baby grand piano, a well stocked bar and a commitment to local music.

Jackie Myers has played in several local Austin bands, including the Republic of Texas Big Band and her former band Strange Places. After playing in The Republic of Texas Big band for a couple years, Jackie struck out on her own and wrote her debut album Count to Three. Jackie will play solo but is more often accompanied by percussion, bass and horns.

The album moves wonderfully through the songs giving the listeners tastes of several emotions and keeping their attention captivated. The way it was recorded and mixed makes you feel as though you are the only one in a private, velvety lounge enjoying a personal performance. Jackie is a very honest and provoking artist with much that matters to tell.
