Read some PRESS 

Undoubtedly, as people we mature as the years go by. Some of us build homes, some raise children,...others build businesses & some do it ALL. One thing is uttely transparent: a transformation takes place deep within us which gives us the strength to perserve in what has undeniably become a more complex world. So, when I heard that 90's rap rock group, Jackie On Acid, was making a return to music & the scene under a NEW moniker in Saving Jackie I was intrigued to say the least; and what I came to find out is that the individuals in this band had undergone such drastic transformations themselves; and CLEARLY those transformations resonate in their NEW music! I was privy to hear their 3 song demo (recently officially released on January 25th, 2020) & I was taken aback. Musically, there was no mistep in the delivery of BIG hooks & catchy choruses,....but the brutal clarity (& delivery c/o Jenny ShoShock Ramirez) of the lyrical MESSAGE is what really hit home. *Click the Web Link*”

“~{BTTW EXCLUSIVE ALBUM REVIEW}~ Saving Jackie EP Sleeper band Saving Jackie is a welcomed breath in the music industry. Honestly this became the hardest music review I’ve had to ever do as their sound & their lyrical structure is quite impressive for this young group. Recently back in January they released their debut EP. Doing a search of their name on Google opened me up to several reviews of praise of their work. With the EP not being out even 2 solid weeks, I even came across a quick review that said it was the best album of 2020. That instantly intrigued me. Most of their 3 songs from the EP hit hard lyrically as you hear their vocalist Jenny belt out some strong vocals around the hard rock/some punk elements in their music. The first song, “My Faith is Larger” comes off as a great anthem song, as well as a declaration song to get your blood pumping to what they are singing & playing about. “My Everything” is right away a straight forward & honest.. *Click the Web Link*”

Mike Geiner, BTTW Church (Apr 11, 2020)

“As the drums ROAR into your ears like a tribal war conquest, “My Faith is Larger” is a banger of a track and lets you know immediately that this band has a mighty, powerful punch that will have you, the listener, excited and ready to mosh to its intensity. The riffs in this strong opener really show that this band, a performing and touring crew, have definitely developed their style in the crucible of the live circuit. Jenny’s vocals tie these songs together with a diverse vocal range and thoughtful lyrics, expatiating on her faith, with powerful poise and grace. The one thing I love about this group is the eclectic, genre spanning influences that they demonstrate with an authority that oozes authenticity. “My everything” the second track shows off the beautiful instrumentation of Antonio, John, Jerry, and Rick. They are great at creating an intense and rhythmic ambience for the lyrics to shine bright in the powerful atmosphere of a funk-fused diorama. *Click the Web Link”

Move over RATM for this shattering, striking slam dunk with the merciless power of a bone-crushing iron ball. A hot-tempered sucker-punch triggering every single nerve, every single muscle, and every single vein in your shuddering body. Hell yeah!”

Bora Curtir (Jan 27, 2021)

“Combine the flaming intensity of Rage Against The Machine and the razor-sharp rants of Body Count and what you get is San Antonio‘s hot-tempered cross-over rockers SAVING JACKIE. Wait, there are two notable differences. No slams about politics, but a pure lust for life credo, and instead of a testeron-driven frontman we have the wonderful Jenny 4C Ramirez leading the troops with vivid gusto and vigorous bravado. She raps and hollers like the best with a high-powered voice you can break walls with. The debut EP of this mettlesome turbo is a head-banging triumph. A storming eruption of illegal decibels and deafening riffs. Yes!! So, listen up, Zack de la Rocha and Ice-T. From now on no more male-dominated metal-rap-dynamite. Make way for Jenny and read carefully what she told Turn Up The Volume. But, as usual, we start interviews with music. Let’s roll…”
