We recently got the chance to sit down and chat with Jacquie. Not only is she one talented lady, she's also genuine, down-to-earth and welcoming. What you see is what you get, and perhaps that is just what the music industry is craving.



Hi, Jacquie! Thanks so much for taking the time to chat with us. We have been following your journey and have been fans since your audition for “The Voice.”

"Learn About Love" marks your second single post-finale. Can you give us a glimpse into what fans can expect next from Jacquie Roar regarding upcoming projects or collaborations?

 

I am trying to stay in the present as much as I can because I want “Learn About Love” to bust through the charts, but I will say… if this single does as well as we all think it will… I will be releasing an EP next and I CANNOT WAIT for THAT!

 

As far as collaborations, I don’t have anything planned yet. I’ve talked to Huntley from my season about doing a song together, but nothing is set in stone. I would like to throw this out there though, in case they are reading.. Yo! Jellyroll, Hardy and Stapleton… if you need a duet, call me ;)



Since your memorable run on "The Voice" Season 24, how do you feel your music has evolved, particularly with the release of your newest single "Learn About Love" compared to your previous single "Bad Habit"?


Bad Habit” was definitely my doorbuster. It had everything I love from rock to country to a guitar solo and heavy drums! But, “Learn About Love” is relatable and maybe even a bit more feminine. It’s more approachable for the listeners. I think it also shows what the judges said the whole season, which is that I can sing ANYTHING. So, I do and I will. 


“Jacquie, you’re everything. You’re beautiful...You have so much confidence. Your voice can do everything. You’re singing country, but you could sing anything.” -Gwen Stefani


“The song choices that are in the scope for you are endless. Anything from Lenny Kravitz to Aerosmith, any of that stuff, you’re gonna be a showstopper…” -Niall Horan



You've been referred to as a "country-rock diva" by Reba McEntire. How would you describe your musical style, and how does it shine through in "Learn About Love"?


Ain’t that so cool? Reba called me a diva! I’m still screaming about that lol. Reba actually heard all my music before I released it and “Bad Habit” was her first pick. She said “release Bad Habit first,” so I did!

 

As for myself, interpretation of who I am as an artist? I would say what Wynonna said. I’m a badass. My music is big and heavy-hitting. It could be about broken hearts, finding love, partying, or whatever else inspires me. My music is genuine. How I write is how I would speak in real life, so you’re getting who I am in every song. I blend all the genres I grew up with. Grunge rock, classic rock, a little pop, and a lot of country. 



Reflecting on your time on "The Voice," what were some of the most valuable lessons you learned during your journey on the show, and how have they influenced your career moving forward?


I learned that I shouldn’t stick my neck out for everybody because half of those people would never do the same for me. It’s been a painful revelation, but it’s good to learn it now than later - and that’s not directed at The Voice; that’s just in general because when I was on The Voice, a lot of people I had lost connection with all of the sudden were DMing me and apologizing for their past transgressions, wanting to reconnect. I’m not THAT dumb. Lol.

 

I learned that I’m not a competitive artist. There’s enough success to go around for everyone. I was definitely the mama of the contestants. My room was the jam room (and also the snack room!), so people would stop in to sing or grab a snack. I have lifelong bonds with some of the contestants.


Also, Reba taught me a lot about myself as a performer. I used to think jumping around from one side of the stage to the other was what performing looked like and she taught me the power of standing still.



You’ve mentioned before that some of the best advice you’ve received was to have a great team surrounding you. Did you find that team and, if so, how did that come about?

 

I have a juicy story here, but I’ll try to keep it short haha! I am now with Rob Beckham at The Artist Management Group. I feel like a priority there and the team, especially Cam Catron and Lexia Thomas, make me feel so comfortable to be me.

 

If you don’t know who Rob Beckham is, you should probably look him up. Reba definitely gave me the green light to sign with him as my manager. 



You're planning to tour various cities this year. Do you have a dream venue to stage you’d love to perform?


Red Rocks Amphitheater is a dream for me, but, honestly, I would melt into a puddle if I could sell out any arena!



From sharing the stage with renowned acts like Reba McEntire and Alan Jackson to releasing your own music, you've built a strong presence in the music industry. What has been the most rewarding aspect of your musical journey so far?


Validation. Validation from my peers, validation from respected artists, validation from radio stations and validation from booking agents. I  think I’ve put so many tears into my music and performances that it feels so rewarding to finally be able to smile and soak it in. Having Reba validate me and still keep in contact even after the finale of The Voice? That just shows me she means what she says and that means I will be successful because she said I would be! 



Lastly, what message or feeling do you hope audiences take away from "Learn About Love," and what do you hope they remember most about Jacquie Roar as an artist?


I think “Learn about Love” is a good way to turn having crappy relationships into a good thing. How are you supposed to know what you do and don’t want or what is good or bad if you haven’t experienced it? Your heart has to get broken to make you stronger and teach you what you won’t tolerate in your next relationship. I would like someone to hear this song and say “Woah, Jacquie Roar is different and I love that.” I want them to embrace that I’m not like anyone else on the radio right now. I am the Country/Rock diva that radio needs. 



Jacquie Roar, if you're reading this, we think you are different and love that ☺️
