Jill_Jack_784826530.jpgJill Jack's magical connection to her audience is the result of her generous artistry. By combining her gifts as a conceptual visionary with a warm gathering of musical influences, Jill touches that secret heart of ours with her melodies and lyrics. In her hometown of Detroit, Jill needs no further explanation. She's been lauded in equal measure to her talents: Since 1997 she's won 38 Detroit Music Awards (see full list) in every conceivable category that applies to a singer-songwriter. Much of this provincial success is due to her charming stage presence and emotive songwriting. It's simply called connecting, and it's the bounty of a true songwriter open to all of life: her own defeats, victories, hopes dashed, dreams fulfilled, her muse, her loneliness, her misplaced love and her romantic successes.

Jill has built her audience with her whimsical, genuine live performances. Genuine is the defining term here. Propelled by her musical exemplars Joni Mitchell and Emmy Lou Harris, there are few performers with less conflict between who they are on stage and off than Jill. She extends the tradition of the confessional (i.e. achingly open, unafraid of intimacy) singer-songwriter, and is proud of that style and its continuation.

You get all of Jill Jack in a performance -- her blend of folk and rock traditions, her open humor, her fine band. Jill harbors little of her process from her audience -- each performance is about opening a window and shining a light into her songwriting, leading inevitably to the intense relationship with her fans. Her career is founded on folk's best idea -- that there's a shared knowing between artist and audience, a conversation that flows both ways during a show. Plus she's a strong woman who's won over the toughest town in a man's world -- she's a bandleader, the principal songwriter in a large group bearing her own name, an employer and automatic arbiter of musician's issues.

About Teri Williams:

Teri Williams is a gifted shamanic energy practitioner, shamanic mentor, meditation teacher and business coach who acts as a bridge between mysticism and multimedia. After having had her own "spiritual awakening" in 1991 she immersed herself in mystical teachings.

"I USE MEDITATION!" Meditation has been the single most significant practice of my life for over 25 years, beginning with a guided meditation. Both Meditation and Shamanic (mystical) teachings are the foundation for everything I do in this life! I meditate or practice a shamanic journey every day, even if only for a few minutes at a time. Most days, when the temperature is above 30 degrees, I practice in the sunshine, somewhere in nature. Having been clean and sober for more than 25 years, it's good for my mental stability, my skin, my energy, and my soul."
