"Jacelyn Holmes is one of the most versatile singers I've worked with to date. Any genre her voice touches turns to solid gold." -- Peter Haverkamp, Owner / Sound Engineer - Canadian Heritage Records.
One of Canada's most exciting emerging artists, Jacelyn Holmes has arrived! This international singer, songwriter, and musician is writing songs that give voice to the issues of today's women mixing Alternative Country, Acoustic, and Pop to create a sound as unique as she is!
Born in Ontario, Jacelyn grew up as a citizen of the world, living on several continents and traveling with her family until putting down musical roots in the fertile Niagara region.
This dynamic young woman is already turning heads wherever she goes. After being in the music industry less than one year, Jacelyn was nominated last year for 3 Niagara Music Awards - Female Vocalist of the Year, Songwriter of the Year, and Original Song of the Year. Even though she was up against some great contenders, Jacelyn won Original Song of the Year for Growin' Up. What makes this even more impressive is that she received this recognition even before the release of her debut EP As Is, which has been called "a thoughtful exploration of love and loss in the battlefield of relationships".
This year Jacelyn won the award for Adult Contemporary Artist of the Year and also received the nomination for Music Video of the Year.
Jacelyn is most excited about having her award winning single Growin' Up and her second release Speechless in the upcoming feature film "Sophie" due out this summer.
Jacelyn also enjoys performing as a guest recording artist for Gemini Award winner, Doug McClement, at the Harris Institute in Toronto, a world renowned school where students can get hands on experience in the recording studio with professional musicians. Some previous guest artists include Nelly Furtado and Keisha Ashanti.
"It's great to work with a new artist as passionate and driven as Jacelyn. She shows a degree of poise and focus that is unusual in someone at the start of their career." -- Doug McClement, President - LiveWire Remote Recorders and Gemini Award winner.
"Jacelyn is one of those vivacious women with the smoky voice one can picture wailing on a torch song in a chic 50's cocktail lounge, or winning over the Nashville crowd in her cowboy boots. She oozes "heart" and is a force to be reckoned with. She is a true professional to work with and a pleasure to know. Jacelyn Holmes is effervescent with a punch. So get ready. She's a true delight." -- Judith Lander, Singer / Songwriter / Vocal Coach.
