Jackie Trent

Biography

A British singer/songwriter from the ’60s whose tone of voice was much better suited for achieving the back again row of Broadway auditoriums than spirit or rock and roll, Jackie Trent (given birth to Yvonne Burgess in 1940; she transformed her name to Jackie Trent at age 14) nonetheless managed around the fringe of the U.K. pop picture in the way of additional femme belters like Cilla Dark, though her attempts were usually a lot more middle of the street. Her one big triumph was her number 1 British solitary in middle-1965, “Where ARE YOU CURRENTLY Now (My Like)”; that might be her just Top 20 access. If she could appear to be Petula Clark crossed with Shirley Bassey, there is a good reason for the; she distributed Clark’s maker, Tony Hatch, who become her songwriting partner and spouse. Trent and Hatch, actually, penned many of Clark’s strikes, though (apart from “Where ARE YOU CURRENTLY Right now”) the composers weren’t almost as effective when applying their songwriting/creation skills to Jackie’s discs. Trent documented quite prolifically for Pye within the ’60s (including some duets with spouse Tony), but it’s like a songwriter that she’ll mainly be remembered.
