But I hope people will listen to my music and hear that I can do more than just a good folk song. I can go from singing a sweet ballad to rockin' the place out." Jill Jack grew up in Michigan, and her interest in playing guitar and musical tastes were hand-me-downs from her older sisters who cultured her in the music of the times. Jill has worked relentlessly for years – everything from playing hole in the wall clubs to singing commercial jingles – and has risen to the elite of Detroit's music scene while building a large and loyal fan base that literally stretches from coast to coast (with her website receiving thousands of hits each week). For this singer/songwriter, performing countless shows while balancing all the risks involved between her music career and raising her teenage daughter have really paid off.
Jill received five Detroit Music Awards in 2006, bringing her total DMA wins to 18 across three different genres (Acoustic/Folk, Country, and Pop/Rock) for vocalist, songwriter, album, and artist. Discography: Jill has produced and released six critically-acclaimed albums (selling over 16,000 copies). She is currently touring in support of "Moon and the Morning After", released to a sold-out Baldwin Theatre in Royal Oak, Michigan in October of 2005. Performances: Major 2006 summer performances include: headlining the WYCD Downtown Hoedown (the largest free country music event in the world) as Budweiser's Artist of Choice, Blissfest Music Festival (one of the largest folk music festivals in the Midwest), being selected to open for Chris Isaak and Loretta Lynn at the Meadowbrook Music Festival (Detroit), opening for John Michael Montgomery at DTE Engery Music Theatre (Detroit), as well as performances at the Bluebird Café in Nashville, The Ark in Ann Arbor, and The Living Room in New York City.
