Music is universal and it makes people happy. There’s lots of negativity in the world. Music is what brings people together.” – Jacqueline Tucci

She may only by 17-years-old, but Jacqueline Tucci knows how to captivate an audience.

Tucci, a Cambridge local, took the stage Saturday night at Beaver & Bulldog on Hespeler Road. The aspiring guitarist played an eight song set that consisted of originals such as End of Four, as well as covers that included Working Class Hero and Hurt.

Tucci began writing lyrics at a young age and recalls having a passion for music since early childhood. “I have lyrics from when I was a kid that are written in crayon,” she noted. It was at the age of five that she would ask for her first guitar. However, it wasn’t until the age of 11 that she received one. From that point on, Tucci began writing guitar based songs.

Although she credits The Beatles as her biggest influence, Tucci is also inspired by bands such as Oasis, Blink 182, and Arctic Monkeys. Although she has no specific plans, she hopes to pursue music in the future and will see where the road takes her.

    I have been following Jacqueline as an artist for several years now, and encouraging her to follow this dream. She was half way through her sent when the owner came up to me and asked me if I could rebook her, not as an opening act but as a headliner, paid full rate. Jacqueline is going places.It’s one of the few things her dad and I agree on, and the 50,000 people who have viewed her cover of “Pants on the ground” would also concur.
    Great job, Jacqueline.

    Another Cambridge artist to check out is The Intake Of Glass. They are a metalcore band that plays in the region and as far as Toronto and Montreal. They are playing at this years Vans Warped Tour in Mississauga and will be one of the bands appearing At Rock The Mill in August.
