Born and raised in Chester Springs, Pennsylvania and spending most of her teen years in New York City, Jillian began singing at local coffee shops at the age of 7. Inspired by Patsy Cline and box sets of Elvis, Bobby Goldsboro, Trisha Yearwood, The Dixie Chicks, James Taylor, Carole King, Martina McBride, and Patty Loveless, she wrote and recorded her first album in her guitar player’s basement at age the age of 8.
At the age of 9, Jillian took a trip to New York City to audition for a Christmas show starring legendary country/pop singer & entertainer Kenny Rogers and got the part, leading her to co-star alongside Rogers in the Broadway production “Christmas from the Heart” at the Beacon Theater in New York City for three months. Following the show, Jillian performed on tour with Rogers from 1999-2005. In 2001 Dreamcatcher Entertainment released a duet with Billy Dean, Suzy Bogguss, and Jillian titled “Please Keep Mom and Dad in Love” which debuted on the Top 50 Billboard Country Music Charts. Jillian formed a band with her three sisters during this time called The Little Women Band and began touring and playing all over the U.S, including a residency at The Bitter End in New York and state fairs all over the country.
Jillian moved to Nashville, TN in 2010 after graduating from college and spent the past few years writing and recording new material. In 2013 she wrote and recorded a 6 song project with pop singer/songwriter and record producer Richard Marx. She signed with Downtown Music Publishing in August 2014.
