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.
