Jill Jack at Comfy Couch Concerts
"Jill Jack; I just keep thinking somehow that if Waylon Jennings was a woman, it would be her! She's sharp, she's witty, and she's got soul. Most important, I think based on her songwriting and style, she's got staying power; she gives Tift Merritt some real competition."  WDVR-FM in New Jersey

"Jill is freakin' awesome! Her beauty and talent is matched by an an equally beautiful and warm personality."  Honky Tonk House Concerts, Streetsboro, OH

"Jill Jack has all the makings of a major talent. She's got the stage presence, the voice, the ability to interpret songs passionately  there's a lot of soul in what she does"  Billboard Magazine

"Her voice can soar like opera and smoke like the blues  one of the strongest voices in Detroit, or in the country for that matter."  The Detroit Free Press

Jill 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 35 Detroit Music Awards 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. Jill harbors little of her process from her audience  each concert 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.
