WJER Radio reviewer Amy Smith wrote about Kristine after her opening performance for Mr. B.B King, “Jackson wowed the audience with her soulful and gritty vocals and guitar, she more than proved herself worthy of opening up for The King of Blues!”
Dee Perry 'WCPN 90.3'
"She doesn't need anything more than the guitar, the voice and the stories. An old message with a modern package"
M. Heaton 'Plain Dealer'
"She owns the musical territory where the borders between blues, country and soul become indistinguishable".
