A&R Jackie Giles
Meet Jackie Giles
Originally from Brooklyn, New York. As far back as I can remember I have always had an attraction to music and entertainment. As a little girl I recall performing in local talent shows and school musicals. As time went by I moved to Queens, New york where I met Colonel Abrams this lead me to the gig where I was an original background singer with Colonel Abrams on several recordings including; Trapped, How Soon We Forget, You and Me Equal Us, and Table For Two. That’s when Colonel Abrams and Morrison Freeman decided it was time to record my solo project. I officially signed with MCA records and went by the name Jackie Silvers. My first single was If By Chance released in 1988. As time would have it I pursued motherhood instead of singing. When the opportunity presented itself, I said yes to my son’s request for me to manage his band here in the DC/Baltimore area.
These events increased my interest in the music industry and throughout the last few years I began to realize my passion was not only performing but sharing amazing performers with others. Just as I strived to be a success in the art of performing, I work hard to apply that knowledge to assure success for new and upcoming talent.
In my role as A&R Representative for DC Productions I have the insight, knowledge and ability to guide and protect the artist. I will be searching for artists or groups that have a new and fresh edge encompassing their own distinct sound.
