When Jackie Sullivan burst onto the scene in 2002 with the MusicNL award winning debut album Out of the Rain, it was the signaling in of a career with boundless amounts of promise. Fast forward to 2019 and Jackie Sullivan has taken the less than conventional road to her sophomore release Find Your Light.
Jackie Sullivan has, for as long as she can remember, been playing music and performing. She called it a passion, and her deep love of music is evident when she speaks about her career in the industry and what it does for her.
The dirt roads and traditions of a small Great Northern Peninsula town have inspired a new song from artist Jackie Sullivan.
From Calvert on the Avalon Peninsula, Sullivan has a new album out. It includes a song called “Old Dirt Roads” that pays tribute to the town of Croque, a small community of about 50 people on the eastern side of the Great Northern Peninsula.
As a little girl, no more than eight or nine years old, Jackie Sullivan would sit in front of her grandmother’s dresser with the octagon-shaped mirror and pretend she was onstage. Years later, those make-believe shows became reality as the Calvert songstress went on to become an award-winning singer, performing on stages all over the province.
