Jillea

Jillea has 25 tattoos, 11 piercings and black hair - but the music she produces isn’t roll-in-the-glass punk rock or head-banging hard rock. The 24-year-old small town New Brunswick born gal with the city edge only stomps on clichés and stereotypes. She creates an urban-tinged pop that has a gentleness and vulnerability with a killer emotive voice.

Jillea — who won Slaight Music’s 2013 It’s Your Shot songwriting and artist development competition with her heart-wrenching rhythmic-ballad “Shattered” — is now Toronto based and hard at work on the follow up to 2015’s Top 20 hit, the aforementioned single “Shattered”, and debut EP “Who is Jillea.”

That EP also yielded singles “Goddess” and feisty tell-off “Miss America,” the latter being all about what Jillea stands for, with a lyric that declares she’s not a cover girl that can be changed and molded, while in the string-enforced “Goddess” she demands to be treated well. It’s something different for the girl who says she always came in second place.

Jillea is currently in the studio writing new music thats set for release in early summer 2018!
