Jaclyn Lovey and Dallas Caroline are young singer/songwriters who competed during Season 14 of the popular reality TV show “The Voice.” They both play instruments and love to express their thoughts through song.
Hailing from Placerville, 17-year-old Lovey is a local music sensation who gained national acclaim as a contestant on “The Voice” this last fall. Her blind audition performance was praised by all judges and described her singing as “pure … honest … and genuine.”
Her musical career began at age 11 when she traveled to Nashville to record a single. Her first EP 17, which contains four original songs, was released in 2016. She has worked with famed Australian producer Bill Chambers as well as his daughter, country singer Kasey Chambers.
Lovey was an audience favorite at the Auburn State Theatre’s Young Musicians Showcase in 2015, and has a wide range of musical influences, from older classics like Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, and Billie Holliday, to modern artists such as Coldplay and Cage the Elephant.
Santa Rosa teen Caroline’s dream is to become a country singer. She began singing at age 8 and started playing guitar and piano soon after. In 2017, Dallas had one of her biggest performances at the CMA Fest. She has released covers of Meghan Trainor, Rhianna, and JoJo on Spotify.
