*The Following Press Release Was Issued By Jacqueline Tucci*
“Sweeter Things” was written at a time when I was feeling frustrated with the state of the world. I wanted to write about it and use my voice through my music, but I felt nervous about possibly stepping on some toes in doing so.
This song is about shedding those insecurities and finding the confidence to speak my mind. It’s a statement that I’m not going to put myself in a box to meet someone else’s expectations. I’m not trying to be sweet, I’m trying to be honest, and right now I have something to say.

“Sweeter Things” emphasizes the importance of being true to yourself and speaking up for what you believe in. The lyrics are tongue-in-cheek but the message is sincere.
I think a lot of women, in particular, sometimes feel like we need to live a certain way based on someone else’s standards, but it just isn’t realistic. You know what matters to you and you should stand up and speak up for that.
