The Jacinta recipe.
"Blend a bit of Madonna with a smattering of Kylie (Minogue), throw in some Olivia (Newton-John) and a pinch of Sarah (McLachlan). Simmer until hot! The wonderful dish we call Jacinta :)".. (Barnsey - Chunky Music)
JACINTA is an accomplished international singer/songwriter from Australia with Five impressive Billboard Dance Club Chart hits in the United States and many self penned songs that have found their way into film. In March 2008, Jacinta was nominated Best Break-Through Artist for the International Dance Music Awards and in October has released her latest single ELECTRIC UNIVERSE.
Jacinta's first US single release SUNSHINE hit the top twenty on the BILLBOARD 'Hot Club Play' Chart in early 2006. Her second single DESTINATION released May 2006 was also a Billboard 'Hot Club Play' Hit, climbed to 5 on the DJ Times Chart and is still receiving airplay on Dance Music Radio. Jacinta’s third release CAN’T KEEP IT A SECRET debuted as the #1 Breakout Song on the Billboard Dance Chart and peaked at #7 on 07/07/07. Still receiving massive support in the USA, SECRET peaked #2 on the DJ Times and FMQB charts. This instant hit also received high rotation on US Dance Radio and found Jacinta new audiences in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. Nov 8/08 saw ELECTRIC UNIVERSE hit Break Out for the Billboard Hot Dance Club Chart, with it’s debut on the main chart on Nov 22. It's still early days in it's "birth" but nonetheless very encouraging for Jacinta's fourth US Dance release, with Radio Airplay picking up all over the US.
2009 will start with the release of three other projects, co-productions with new duo “Wild Jaam” featuring Jacinta and Amber Dirks (Sister Sledge), and a new Cybersutra track featuring Jacinta, already endorsed by Judge Jules and charting on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Chart with release thru Kult Records.
2009 also marks her first European release in the Benelux region thru Five Star Records.
Jacinta's solo career has given her the opportunity to work with internationally respected musicians including Tony Bennett, Cake, Leo Sayer, David Gates of Bread, Take That and Cirque Du Soleil.
Basing herself and her label Chunky Music in the U.S., Jacinta’s success continues with touring all over North America in support of her hit singles and critically acclaimed albums.
