Jackie Hole

SEO by day, Diva by night – originally from Felixstowe/East Anglia, Jackie has one foot in the south and one in the North (Manchester and Edinburgh). Jackie is an accomplished vocalist having been involved in session singing for jingles and backing for local bands all over the UK for a number of years.

Having trained in music production at the Leeds College of music, Jackie is an accomplished studio session vocalist as well as being able to re-create note perfect renditions in a live environment.

Having grown up listening to Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Carpenters, Joni Mitchell, Muddy Waters, Peter Green, Sarah Vaughan, Ella, Julie London,  Annie Lennox, Michael Jackson and disco divas like Whitney, Randy Crawford and Donna Summer, Jackie is naturally drawn to Jazz, Blues, Soul and Folk. Jackie also has a passion for Jimi Hendrix and Rockers like Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath but not blessed with a Rock Voice will have to settle for soulful covers :-)

Jackie plays basic guitar for intimate folk gigs but has the backup of ‘proper’ guitarist Alan Harmon with Acoustic Soul.

Alan Harmon

Alan is a super cool and talented bass player but for Acoustic Soul he turns his talents to laid back funky jazz guitar rhythms and putting a different twist on the same old songs. Having played in various bands in Suffolk and Essex, Alan has about 4 bands on the go with different styles and plenty of great musicians who will also guest with us in the coming months.

Acoustic Soul Origins

Jackie and Alan met over a coffee in her sisters kitchen while Alan had come over to talk drums with Jackie’s bro in law. The rest as we say is history – similar musical tastes and a love for playing music to the masses for fun has led to the Acoustic Soul Duo.
