‘Deservedly becoming a celebrity in the new folk scene' The Guardian
2011 fRoots Critics’ Poll Album of the Year nominee
2012 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Album of the Year nominee
2012 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Folk Singer nominee
Jackie Oates is a phenomenon in the exploding folk-pop scene in the UK today. Originally a member of The Mercury-nominated The Unthanks (then Rachel Unthank & The Winterset), she has since carved out an astonishing solo career which has made her a name to conjure with in folk music circles, in demand for work with other artists, cosmetics stores, collaborative projects, even the subject of pop-art….
She has toured toured as support to Mercury nominated folk-pop star Seth Lakeman.
She’s newly established as a member of the all-star multi-cultural folk band Imagined Village alongside Eliza Carthy, Chris Wood, Martin Carthy and more (recording for Radio 2 at Maida Vale Studios in June).
She recently spent a week in the songwriting house of the Cecil Sharp Project which garnered major features on Radio 3’s World on 3, Radio 4’s Today programme and The Guardian.
In the wake of this explosion of activity, Jackie released her new studio album ‘Saturnine’ in September 2011. She says of the album,
‘The songs, their arrangements and instrumentation, and the album artwork are the result of a frenzy of current fascinations from viols, hand bells, eccentric percussion to the Saturn return, Joseph Cornell and Alphonse Mucha.’
Through the album is a strong connection to the songs, tunesand people of her west country of England base, as well as a burgeoning maturity which sees her move on to new heights from her 2009 released ‘Hyperboreans’ album, which itself drew a landslide of rave reviews:'Jackie Oates is deservedly becoming a celebrity in the new folk scene' said The Guardian. 'English folk-pop...as pretty as some spring mornings.' said The Independent
‘Saturnine’ sees special guest contributions from Jim Moray, Alasdair Roberts, Karen Tweed and the little known Devon acoustic male voice line up The Claque.
In March 2013 Jackie released an album of lullabies supported by two Lullabies tours in spring and autumn 2013. The project as a whole will include a new archive of lullabies collected by Jackie, being lodged in the Vaughan Williams Memorial Library at Cecil Sharp House in London, the home of the English Folk Dance & Song Society. The project is supported by funding from Arts Council England.
