Jackii Kennedy, voice

Jackii Kennedy is an island girl who was born and raised in the Florida Keys. When she was 4 years old, she came out to her mother and was one of the only openly gay people in her hometown of Key Largo. Jackii found her love for creating music around 10 years old while grounded in her room for a few days where all she had access to was pen, paper, and a keyboard. As her path began to unfold, she realized she never saw a person who looked like her on a stage or heard someone with her story on the radio. As a singer, songwriter, producer, instrumentalist, and creative director, Jackii Kennedy aims to be the artist who expands upon the narratives in music just that much more.

Jackii is uniquely influenced by color, a product of the synesthesia she’s experienced since birth. The inspiration for her album artwork comes from the colors she sees when listening to that particular song.

In November 2018, Jackii Kennedy collaborated with Tessa Brooks and Asics to create an original dance video to promote their newest sneaker. During this month she also worked with Tarte Cosmetics on an Instagram Story GRWM with their holiday favorites where her song “Cool With It” was the featured music within the story.

From November 2018 to December 2018, her single “Cool With It” was in regular rotation on KCRW 89.9FM. 

Live performance is really where she shines. She can light up and excite a room of hundreds of people who have never heard her music before and turn them into fans. In a venue where everyone is there for her, the energy is unmatched. She has performed on iconic LA stages such as The Troubadour, The Mint, Peppermint Club, The Viper Room, and The Satellite, just to name a few and headlined Bay Jam 25 in her hometown of the Florida Keys. 

For Jackii's music, everything released thus far has been with Ryan Raines (Dominic Fike, Peach Tree Rascals, Will Jay) as a production and writing partner. She also has three songs released (Slow Drive, Ten Out of Nine, Queens) with genre-bending band, No Suits. Starting July 2020, Jackii will be releasing a new single each month, created with both Ryan Raines and Hudson Taylor (Kanye West).
