 Jacque Jolene

Lead Vocals, Guitar

Jacque Jolene of the Copper Mountain BandJacque was born in Fairbanks, Alaska, but moved a lot as her father was the Project Manager on government construction jobs.  While living in Hawaii at 8 yrs. old, she found her vocal talent. A retired music teacher in the apartment complex overheard her singing the national anthem in the parking lot into a broom stick and introduced her to karaoke tapes.  Jacque’s mother took it from there.  
A year later, the family moved to Montana and Jacque was singing in school concerts and entered in singing competitions all over the northwest.  At the age of 14, she won the state competition in the “Colgate Country Showdown” and advanced to Anaheim, CA for regionals.  
Jacque graduated high school as Valedictorian from St. Regis, MT and went on to the University of Montana to pursue an Accounting degree, all the while still singing competitively.  Two years later, she met Nate (bass guitarist), and in 2003, they got married and have two beautiful children. She loves the country lifestyle and singing country music, and credits her “rock edge” on stage to listening to her father’s classic rock tapes when she was young.  Jacque is the lead singer of CMB, plays acoustic guitar, and finds passion in performing and songwriting. She has written numerous songs, including the highly requested CMB singles “Cowgirl Like Me” and “Beers and Beers Ago.”
