Jill Jackson is one of Scotland’s leading singer-songwriters; her sensitive storytelling and heart-rending vocals have earned her a loyal fanbase and have drawn comparisons to the likes of Brandi Carlile and Joni Mitchell. As former frontwoman of noughties group Speedway, she has enjoyed an illustrious pop career, but country and Americana music have always been Jill’s creative home, after falling in love with the holy trinity that is Dolly Parton, Patsy Cline and Emmylou Harris as a child.
With five solo records under her belt, Jill’s 2018 album, Are We There Yet?
was released to critical acclaim and will be followed up by Yours Aye
this spring. This is the record Jill has always wanted to make and comes from an artist who is exactly where they’re supposed to be. Despite her many career achievements, Jill is an artist who has often – until now – felt like the underdog. However, as the tide slowly starts to change in music and an undercurrent of female talent begins to dominate the Americana scene, Jill stands proudly at the heart of that incredible swell.
