Young, gifted and ready for her star to shine even brighter, Jillian Dawn is a local artist making waves in Nashville. She has all the Nora Jones vibes vocally, and a way with words that make you think she has to be older. Just 24 years old, meet singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and my Local Catch of the Week, Jillian Dawn from Mansfield, MA.
The quest to create music started at a very young age for Jillian. She had her first “gig” when she was just 5 years old. She sang the National Anthem (not an easy task for any age) at a sports tournament. Catch the full story, below. The bug bit her and that lead to talent shows, musical theater, acapella groups, coffee houses and band camp.
Today, Jillian makes music in Nashville. She writes with noted songwriters, tours with major acts and performs at legendary Nashville haunts like the Bluebird Cafe. Listening to the Massachusetts native gives me high hopes for her future. Jillian is the real deal, with a radiant voice and impressive songwriting skills.
