The former front-woman of The Balconies, Jacquie Neville, debuted her career as a solo act with the release of her first single. “Lead The Way” is a track filled with optimism and energy, telling tales of paving your own path and staying focused on what is most important to you.
Jacquie reflects on the song:
“I’ve gone through a lot of life changes in the past three years – all of which have been filled with many ups and downs. I choose to focus on the ways these different experiences have enriched my life and changed it for the better. Lead the Way centralizes around the idea of not dwelling in the past, rather seeing it as another chapter in your story that has led you to where you are now and where you’re heading. I was initially inspired to write this song for my fiancé and his two kids who have drastically altered my perspective on life. Liam engineered and co-produced the song with me in July. We really wanted to capture a playful and light-hearted energy with some room for spontaneity in the recording; although we were planning on getting several takes for the vocals, we recorded the scratch and upon listening to it, we realized that that was the one. We didn’t want to focus our energy on tweaking, manipulating and making things sound perfect. We wanted everything to just sound like…me.”
Hi there! My name is Marie, I am French born and raised, and moved to Montreal about 5 years ago. I am an account manager at a digital marketing agency by day, and an avid concert-goer by night. I have always had a passion for photography, and realized that this mixes quite well with my love for live music (the absolute best way to experience music, if you ask me).
