Following up their fantastic UK debut at C2C this year – this rising country music trio, comprises sisters Emma (vocals/mandolin) and Maddie (vocals) Salute together with guitarist and long-time friend Dawson Anderson (vocals/guitar). They have already amassed a sizeable and loyal fan base thanks to their immaculate harmonies and infectious, youthful energy. With talent far beyond their teenage years, Temecula Road has an impressive online following with their series of song covers. A recent mashup video of the trio singing portions of 2016’s top 20 country songs in a mere 3 minutes garnered them over 7 million views online and 84,000 shares on Facebook.
With words and music to live by, the twenty-something singer/songwriter is well sculpted. Real, true and humble, yet admirably confident, the traits resonate in her music. With pop melody sensibility, Jillian takes artistic liberty with her lyrics, but they’re as flat-out and straightforward “honest” as they come. Her new recording project, Honestly, places Jillian’s life under a magnifying glass to reveal unbound, themes of regret, nostalgia, heartache and frolic. Featuring song titles like “Hate Me,” “Reasons”, “God Bless This Mess”” the emotionally-weighted album spotlights “less is more” tracks that clearly demonstrate a comfortable intimacy to unveil Jillian Jacqueline’s identity—undisguised.
