JILL JACKSON GOES ‘BACK TO ZERO’ WITH FIRST SOLO ALBUM LAUNCH.
Singer/ songwriter Jill Jackson launches her first solo album ‘Back To Zero’ on Wednesday 23rd February 2011 at The Ferry, Glasgow.
Press are invited to a special acoustic performance between 3pm-5pm of selected tracks from the album, plus Jill will be available for interviews. She will also perform a full gig with special guests that night from 8-11pm.
Jill first arrived on the UK music scene in 2003 as the front woman of rock band Speedway who had two top ten hits and various arena tours before the band members went their separate ways. Since then Jill has been making a name for herself as a singer/songwriter,
In 2006 she recorded a self-titled collection of acoustic tracks that offers a mix of brilliantly crafted lyrics and beautiful melodies. Jill’s talent as a songwriter came to the attention of former Spice Girl Melanie C, who covered two of Jill’s songs on her own fourth solo album.
Jill spent the latter part of 2008 on a 50 States in 50 Days tour of the U.S., she played T In The Park in 2009 and Celtic Connections in early 2010. Other endeavours have seen her touring with artist such as Bryan Adams, Glasvegas and Runrig. One of her songs was also featured in the penultimate episode of BBC Three’s drama Lip Service.
Throughout 2010 Jill continued gigging all over the UK, taking time out in Scotland and Denmark to record ‘Back To Zero’ with producer Kristian Gislason.
Critics and Jill’s ever expanding loyal fans have continued to be impressed with her rich vocals, engaging lyrics and a rare ability to connect with audiences everywhere.
Jill’s much-anticipated solo album “Back To Zero” is a project that has been four years in the making. She says: “This new record will be the one that defines me as a writer. It’s fun, intense and hugely personal.”
In the words of Rick Fulton (Daily Record) “What a comeback.”
‘Back To Zero’ will be released on 23rd February 2011 and will be ‘Record Of The Week’ on Radio Clyde week beginning 14th February.
