Meet Jill & Julia...
Jill and Julia are two sisters living in Las Vegas, NV who share a passion for country music. As singer-songwriters and musicians, they have been collaborating together for the past 5 years, and have been performing with their band at various venues throughout Las Vegas. Through their close-knit harmonies and vibrant original songs, Jill and Julia provide the traditional country music genre with a breath of fresh air.
Before they were in their teens, Jill and Julia were studying piano, guitar and voice (classical as well as speech-level methods) and almost immediately applied it to their craft of performing. The girls made their appearances on stage at various beauty pageants in the Mid-West, performed at state and county fairs, sang at the opening of professional sporting events, and placed at city and regional vocal competitions.
Although familiar with Broadway charts, pop music and the standards of the Great American Songbook, Jill and Julia's interest had always been in the country-western genre. They have been influenced by such artists as, The Band Perry, The Civil Wars, Kacey Musgraves and Eric Church.
While continuing to play regular gigs in Las Vegas, and with the production and release of a Demo CD, the young ladies' fan base started to expand beyond the Las Vegas metropolitan area. Accordingly, a large independent record label located in Nashville has contracted with Jill and Julia to record an album of their original songs at Quad Studios, which was released March of 2014.
