The sound of blue-eyed soul.  Beautiful, captivating, complex, and always with an edge.  That’s the sound of the Jackie Myers Band.  Some call the style “groove” or “funk.”  Others don’t try to name it and just like to listen to the flavors of blues, jazz, funk, and soul.  It’s a sound that Patrick Dennis of Austin’s Mix 94.7 called “fabulous.” The Austin-based Jackie Myers Band can sometimes be found packing the best venues in Austin. At other times these travelling troubadours can be found in San Antonio, Dallas, or relentlessly touring all across America, playing all manner of clubs, venues, and festivals. 
Wherever they go, JMB features the songs of singer/songwriter/pianist Jackie Myers.  
Jackie’s creative talent is showcased on the band’s three cd’s: Count to Three, released in 2010, and Ten Foot Twins, released in 2012 and Third which is currently only available at live shows.  The band is reportedly working on a fourth album with the famed and talented Paradise Winds, a classical wind ensemble out of Pheonix, AZ. Count to Three shows a blossoming talent exploring musical boundaries.  This is on display in, among others, Clueless and Penniless, an emotionally riveting portrayal of love gone awry, as well as the irreverent and tempo-jumping Jimmie B. Here is the song Too Close, performed live, from the album 'Ten Foot Twins.'
Ten Foot Twins shows the evolution of a songwriter and a band committed to refining their art.  Jackie Myers shows off her vocal prowess and piano-playing chops on All for You.  She explores moods from love to indifference to human compassion in Love Song, Not Now, and the socially-conscious Left Behind.  Instrumentation on both cd’s includes the best from Austin’s rich musical community including, on Ten Foot Twins, guitarist Mike Brinley and the nationally-renowned trumpeter Ephraim Owens, who has played with Mumford & Sons, Sheryl Crow, and Austin-based Black Red Black.  Here’s what Lafayette, Louisiana musical writer Dominick Cross had to say about Ten Foot Twins: "My initial reaction to the recording was that in some ways its Michelle Shocked meets Amy Winehouse.  And several listens later, I'd say the same thing with more emphasis on Winehouse.  I'd also mix in smooth R&B and fine jazz stylings, old school soul and funk, hip keyboard play, and there's great horn work punctuating and soloing, too.  And all of this carried along by the vocals of Jackie Myers herself.  Add this recording to your collection, and catch these guys/gal next time they come through."
