Starting the Ottawa Ice Dragon Boat Festival off is former front-woman of the Balconies, Jacquie Neville. The Ottawa native singer/songwriter/guitarist has had her music featured in international film, television and commercials and has toured across North America and Europe for over a decade. Although she embarks on a new project, she is a veteran and no stranger to the industry. This new chapter boasts a more intimate, reflective and sensitive side where she explores vulnerability in her performances, arrangements and storytelling. Channeling inspiration from Niko Case, Courtney Barnett, Bruce Springsteen, and Nick Cave, Neville delves deeply into personal themes ranging from garbage jobs, uprooting your life, love gone sour, finding new love and self-discovery.
