When Jacky´s dad moved a keyboard in her room, he could not foresee what impact this would have on his daughter's future life: It was the starting-shot for a career as a full-blooded musican. At the age of 12 she gained her first musical experiences during different band workshops in her home town - sometimes as a singer or drummer, other times as a guitar or bass player. After she attracted the attention of a local producer, she got involved in different showbands, while at the same time she started to write and produce her own songs. After she graduated from school it was clear, where she had to go: to the Berufsfachschule für Musik in Dinkelsbühl, Germany. After three years of extensive musical education -  in addition to pop and jazz also in classical music – she started her bachelor at the Popakademie in Mannheim with the focus on singing and songwriting. In 2014 she took part in a student exchange program at the Columbia College Chicago. Since 2012 she is also known under the name "Jacky Kanlop", currently producing her first album.
