What do you need to know about Jackie Stabb? Let's take a "Stabb" at it!
She began writing music when she bought her first computer, which was supposed to be used for graphic design school, but instead found herself putting off assignments to work on melodies and vocal layering. Never considering a career in music, Stabb soon found herself alongside other music trailblazers on The Top 10 of 2011 list of U.K. tastemaker blog The Recommenders. It was then that she decided her newfound passion was going to become her focus.
See, following your heart and your instinct, and submitting for music discovery programs and contests such as this, is worth it.
