When I heard Jill Andrews' music, a combination of traditional styles rolled into pop, I knew immediately how talented she is. A wonderful storyteller, her voice is - pretty much perfect. And others think so too. In the last few years her work has reached international audiences via soldout live shows and an infusion of her music in popular television programs. Chances are, you've heard Jill Andrews' music and never even knew it. A pioneer in the area, now everyone's crossing Americana and Country into popular music - this is one of the people who helped bring it to you first.

A native of East Tennessee, Jill Andrews kicked off her songwriting career as co-founder of the Everybodyfields, a band whose mix of Southern genres — folk, country, bluegrass — and male-female vocals helped pave the way for future groups like the Civil Wars. After three albums, Andrews left that band and launched a solo career, starting with a self-titled EP and a full-length record, The Mirror, that built something bigger and broader on top of her Americana roots.
On her upcoming solo record, The War Inside, Jill Andrews shines a light on her own struggles and successes, tying the songs together with a new sound that mixes her folk background with a wider set of influences. While working on The War Inside, Jill signed a publishing deal and began landing songs in multiple TV shows and movies, including Grey's Anatomy, Nashville, American Idol, Hart of Dixie, and Me, Him, Her (2015) etc.... One of her songs, “Joy Parade,” also appeared in The Music of Nashville: Season 2, Volume 2, a TV soundtrack that rose to number 13 on the Billboard 200. But Andrews made sure to save the best songs for her own record.
