Jackie Bristow seems primed for success on the now global Americana Scene with beautifully composed music and straight from the heart lyrics.

And in the moving ‘Fallen Youth’ she gives Emmylou Harris a real run for her money.
Chances are that should you play this to somebody that listens to the crop of new/new-ish female country stars and they would scratch their heads and say in turn, ‘Gillian Welch…err no, Lucinda Williams…err no, Alison Krauss…o.k. I give up.’ Are they in for a pleasant surprise.

This album gets into your head, your heart and your muscles…. SHOT OF GOLD is simply stunning.
This is the Jackie Bristow that Jackie Bristow was always destined to be. She lets the river flow through her veins and allows herself to be carried along in its gentle but powerful current. There is respect for its awesome force, but no fear.
This album is full of emotion and demands that you listen to it in all its rawness and vulnerability. Bristow has created a collection of songs that are a tribute to the human feelings, be it about struggle, healing, love, loss, or joy.
