Classically trained, Jill has toured the US and Canada playing Franklin Graham Crusades, Spirit West Coast, Freedom Fest, GMA Summit in the Rockies, and countless venues across North America. She has been featured in Christianity Today, CCM Magazine, and CBA Marketplace; Christianity Today dubbed her a "Best New Artist" and Radio & Records named her one of radio's Top Ten New Artists.
Honesty is Jill's renown; she makes believers out of listeners, awakening a sense of the divinity in their lives that perhaps they haven't experienced. "I want to awaken their curiosty about the intricate, divine moments that color our journey," she reveals. "I want people to experience their own defining moment with the music."
Her newest album, Coming Home, was produced by Robbie Seay and was released in 2010. The thirteen-song collection further expands on Jill's nuanced, thoughtful songwriting and lyricism steeped in folk, roots rock, bluegrass, country, and pop.
