Profile Born in the Netherlands, JACKLYN started her career in the eighties combining dramaschool with singing in rock bands.
In 1990 she went to Germany to sing in a succesful coverband, gaining important onstage experience. Besides, started looking for a partner in music with whom she could create the songs she had in mind and heart.  Meanwhile, had worked with artists and bands like ZINATRA and as studio session vocalist.

Finally she found RONALD WILLEMSE, a local rocker who was part of the band called ‘SPOILED BRATS’ in which ROBBY VALENTINE played keyboards. When his band split up, he set up his own studio and worked for several bands as a sound-engineer and multi-instrumentalist. Both recorded their first 3-track demo in 1992 entitled “Marble Rose”, mentioned in magazines like Metal Hammer and Rock Report as a good promise.

By 1994 they added to the band a second multi-instrumentalist, PETER VAN DE KLETERSTEEG, a skilled classical piano musician. In February ’95 the group released their second demo ; “Second Look”, which captured the attention of the mythical label LONG ISLAND RECORDS. After signing a record-deal, JACKLYN the band started to record their first full lengh album, “Marble Rose”, named as the first demo.

Vibrant Melodic Rock / AOR songs in the vein of LEE AARON, GUDRUN LAOS, JOAL or AMAZE ME. Maybe the absence of a ‘real’ drummer can be noted, but the album is well produced & performed, and got some real good tracks. If you like female fronted bands and classic european melodic rock sound, this is for you.
