“A Handmade Life” marks a new chapter and an impressive evolution in Jill’s long career as a singer/songwriter/performer. A native Los Angeleno, Jill began her professional career in music over 20 years ago. Her trio The Life Is Grand Band became stalwarts of the L.A. music scene, gaining an avid following for their tight vocals and original songwriting–a great feat at a time dominated by synths and drum machines. Their song “Feel Like Makin’ Art” was included on the Fast Folk series which is now part of the Folkways Smithsonian collection.

Following the dissolution of the band, Jill went on to develop her own personal style of songwriting. She released her debut solo effort “Songs About Sex and Depression,” garnering tremendous reviews for her idiosyncratic and highly personal songwriting. The Album Network wrote, “Her music is soft and sensual, with a vulnerability and honesty that will immediately endear it to any listener.” Sing Out! Magazine said, “This CD has been a long time coming, but well worth the wait for this intimate collection of songs from an artist who is both a distinctive songwriter and a gifted singer,” while Music Connection concluded, “This is some damn fine music by a very good performer.”

Over the years, Jill’s songs and singing voice have been heard on film and television including “New Girl,” “Roswell,” “Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “Access Hollywood,” “Dr. 90210,” “The Young and the Restless,” “Melrose Place,” “True Hollywood Stories,” “The Oranges,” and “The Big Squeeze.” Her song “Kisses Good” was also recorded by EMI artists Once Blue and appeared in Touchstone Pictures’ “Mister Wrong” starring Ellen DeGeneres. Additionally, Jill collaborated with blues guitar legend Robben Ford for his release “Keep On Running.”
