Album Notes
If you've ever taken your strongest emotions and stripped it down and looked at it from every possible angle, scrutinizing it, scolding it, embracing it, rejecting it, and letting it be just what it wants to be before molding it into an understandable form, then this music is for you.

She takes the open-tunings and paints a broad musical base to set the landscape for her introspective and conversational lyric to ascend from.

She takes the emotion and transfers it to her fingers and her voice and sends it into the atmosphere to be picked up by the people who are tuned into the same wave.

"Part rock, part folk, part pop and all good. Jill Sissel's signature songs are instantly likable, such as the opening, "That Far" with its fold/pop groove and into the ballad "The Builder" with its smooth relationship analogies and beyond. Jill's songs are simple, straight forward and quite enjoyable, with easy hooks to sing along with in the car, which I often did while listening to her CD. Keeping songs simple, straight forward and still interesting is not easy to do well. I found these songs very engaging."-JPFolks
nominated "The Builder" for best Americana Album in the 1999 songwriting contest.

Ian Charles (songwriter)

I have really enjoyed "The Builder"....of songs, and heart
I have tried to put my thoughts and emotions into one place while listening to this disc. Jill has a way of taking the simple beauty of everyday life and bringing it to a new light of understanding. In her songs I find that love is defined and hope is a staple; That in the waking up to the day and living out the hours in "the moment" there is all of our individual obvious gifts laid out before us. We need more songs like these to live with, to laugh with, and to think about when the lights go out. Buy a copy yourself and enjoy Jill Sissel's beautifully built gifts to all of us. Thanks Jill.

Jill Sissel is refreshing and her lyrics are inspiring
Jill Sissel is just what music is missing today.
Her CD is refreshing and her words inspiring. I
cannot think of another artist I have heard recently
who moved me the way her music does. I strongly suggest
you buy this CD and see her perform.
