Testimonials

"I am astonished by the richness of Katie’s vocals – pure and clear with a touch of melancholy that transcends her years; Jack’s accompaniment is a perfect match – sophisticated yet simple – providing the right ambiance for their heartfelt compositions."

– Bill Manley, Board of Directors, Folk New England & Manager of Marketing and Events, Harvard Square Business Association

"In all of my time working with Boston artists, I have never heard an act as refreshingly vulnerable as Jakals. Their music is brutally, searingly honest. It strips away illusion and facade until all you're left with is the raw poetry of their lyrics and the deep, rhythmic pulse of their accompaniments. Jakals' music gives audiences the gift of being fully present as they dive headfirst into the challenging emotional landscape that has been gracefully constructed for them. If you're searching for a meaningful musical experience, look no farther than Jakals."

– Hailey Magee, Founder/Artist Manager and Consultant at Talisman Music Group, Founder and Director of Emerging Boston Area Singer-Songwriters (EBASS)
