Jacquie Walters and James Wilkinson - Single Review: Spaces Between Words

25 Apr 2019 // A review by Corinne Rutherford
Nelson based singer songwriter Jacquie Walters is about to release an alluring new single Spaces Between Words, featuring James Wilkinson on bass and Jacquie on guitar and vocals. Jacquie and James have shared many musical memories spanning over 25 years. This emotive track is yet another string to add to their bow of exquisite collaborations.


A beautifully composed track, graceful and sincere; Jacquie delivers heartfelt and moving lyrics eloquently. Emotional and haunting, Spaces
Between Words is engulfed in rich warm bass which adds to the sentiment of this song. Jacquie’s guitar playing complements James on bass at every strum.

Jacquie Walters delivers the touching lyrics in an excellent clear and concise manner, showcasing the strength and range of emotion in her voice. Spaces Between Words literally took my breath away when I heard it.

This song sounds like it is telling part of a personal tale. It is deeply moving. Jacquie is an excellent songwriter. Distinct; descriptive storytelling makes it easy to feel her words.

With an abundance of musical history, Jacquie and James have a truly cohesive and gorgeous sound, which I hear is pretty amazing live as well.

This is a stunning song which deserves a solid five stars. I thoroughly recommend it.
