Meet Jackie Auguste from the band, Across The Board

Biggest Musical Influence and why?
My biggest musical influence is currently Joan Jett. She was fearless and a trail blazer as lone wolf female rocker. She pounded the pavement, played in the face of adversity and persisted constantly with so much resistance. She led a generation of female rockers to trust their instinct and never stop making the music they wanted to make.

Biggest achievement in music thus far?
Our biggest achievement thus far is likely our newest album that we just finished recording and is currently in production. It’s slated for release in March of 2019 and is called “Wild Ones”. The premise of the album is the idea of the importance of independence but the need to be able to accept help and surround yourself with a network of people– a community. It uses the analogy of a pack of wolves–the lone wolf who realizes that he/she needs a pack.

If you could give your fans one message what would it be?
Our message is simple–be the best version of yourself that you can. Live life every day with gusto and don’t let anyone drag you down. This theme is played repeatedly in our lyrics over the years.

If you are not an artist right now what would you be doing?
I would be doing my day job–orthopedic surgeon!
