Sleep With Ghosts (EP)
Saint John, New Brunswick-based Jaclyn Reinhart is a no-holds-barred roots-rock singer/songwriter whose influences include Americana icons such as Sheryl Crow and Tom Petty.. On her new EP Sleep With Ghosts, Jaclyn chronicles a chaotic period in her life in the direct, unflinching style that’s made her one of Canada’s most promising new roots rock artists. In the last year, she has toured across the Maritimes and Ontario, both solo and with her band, who put on an energetic and interactive show that add compelling rhythmic and harmonic dimensions to Jaclyn’s songs. Their on-stage chemistry is truly infectious, and they put on an electrifying live show that is not to be missed.
Jaclyn says making Sleep With Ghosts was one of the most cathartic experiences she’s ever had. “The growth that I have felt as a writer and vocalist is something I can’t really define other than saying that if you listen to my last album from 2016 we are two completely different women.” That sense of confidence clearly shines through on “Last Disaster,” an edgy rocker co-written with Andy Brown that details the start of the healing process after leaving an abusive relationship. A similar theme is the foundation of “Rearview,” co-written with Kim Williams and delivered in a more pop-friendly style.
"A significant step forward for this New Brunswick singer-songwriter, who put out an album and an E.P. in the 2010s. Now with a lot more confidence and development, Reinhart has worked hard finding the right framing for her personal lyrics. The result is a rootsier sound with tighter arrangements and some fine hooks and catchy choruses." - Bob Mersereau - Top 100 Canadian Blog
