Jill Jackson

Friday, November 3, 2023 , 7:30 pm 9:30 pm

Jill Jackson is one of Scotland’s leading singer songwriters and an acclaimed artist within the thriving international Americana music scene. Her sensitive and sympathetic storytelling, heart-rending vocals, and sheer love of Americana music, have earned her a loyal fan base around the world and not surprisingly, drawn comparisons to the likes of Brandi Carlile and Joni Mitchell.

A natural born storyteller and award-winning artist, Jill effortlessly marries swinging American charm with Scottish heart. As former front woman of noughties pop-rock group Speedway, she has enjoyed an illustrious 20-year career–from signing to major record label Virgin EMI and topping the UK singles chart, to performing on Top of the Pops and stages around the world such as T In The Park, Party In The Park, Glastonbury and Wembley Arena, writing for Mel C and touring with the likes of Bryan Adams and Rod Stewart. 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. Growing up in Glasgow, she picked up a guitar aged 9 and was determined to teach herself, spending hours diligently recording Chet Atkins on VHS and watching him over and over until she could lovingly recreate the remarkable sounds.

Jill’s new studio album, Yours Aye, was successfully released on Friday 6th May 2022, reaching No.23 on the Official UK Americana Chart – the only unsigned artist in the Top 40. This is her most exposing body of work to date, this is the record Jill has always wanted to make and comes from an artist who is exactly where they’re supposed to be.

“Jill Jackson’s sensitivity is in no doubt, a party to the resolution, a woman, a performer who is unafraid of tackling the subjects of the heart, and whose vocals sing with joy and expression at every given moment.” Liverpool sound and Vision
