Fallen Youth

about

Third single released off Jackie's fourth studio album "Shot of Gold," "Fallen Youth" is in remembrance of the Gallipoli Campaign 100-year reunion.

"Fallen Youth" was originally a poem written by an unnamed ANZAC WW I soldier. It was found in the lIbrary of Jackie's hometown of Gore, New Zealand.

A childhood friend and Kiwi soldier found the poem and carried it with him for 20 years. He asked Jackie to turn the poem into a song. She wrote the song at the top of the Hokonui hills and now performs it as part of her live set.

Jackie says, "The poem speaks from the heart of a soldier and it feels good to tell a story for all the soldiers in the world."
