Album Notes
"Music brings people together. It can speak to the heart of an individual and connect them with the rest of the world. It can make you cry harder and laugh louder, provoke you to think outside your own needs, and let you know you are not alone in your joy or in your sorrow. That is what music has done for me, and that is why I sing." - Jill King

Jill King grew up in the northern Alabama farming town of Arab, singing in the church her grandfather helped build, brick by brick, and listening to the Country Music Countdown on Sunday afternoons, dreaming of the day her song would make it to the 1 slot.

Soon after Jill packed up and moved to Nashville, she quickly caught the ear of music publishers. She signed with Gate to Gate Publishing and began writing songs as well as performing around town everywhere she could, from the Bluebird to Tootsies Orchid Lounge. Her musical family tree is rooted in the fertile soil of traditional country music greats from Hank Williams Sr. to Patsy Cline, with branches reaching in every direction from U2 to Shawn Colvin, to Annie Lennox, and Ray Lamontagne. The key ingredients are lyrical provocation and musical integrity.

Jill's first album, Jillbilly, distributed through Compendia on Blue Diamond Records in 2003, received critical acclaim and award-winning status. Over the next 2 years and 80,000 miles, Jill placed her breakout single "One Mississippi" on the Billboard, R&R, and Music Row charts, and her video in medium rotation at GAC. All of her singles have reached 23 or higher on Music Row, with "98.6" reaching 10 on Music Row, 45 on R&R, and 53 on Billboard. She has performed for thousands of country music fans all over the country, as well as France, Sweden and Japan. She has shared the stage with Big & Rich, Daryl Worley, Blue County, Shannon Lawson, Marty Stuart and Randy Travis, and made her captivating debut on the stage of the mother church of country music, "The Grand Old Opry". She was named Music Row Magazine's "2004 Independent Breakout Artist of the Year".

Today, for Jill, it's still about the music. She can bring back-porch intimacy to capacity crowds and big stage entertainment to back-porch get-togethers. Still enjoying the creative freedom of being an independent artist, Jill co-produced her sophomore album, Somebody New, with the incredibly talented A-list engineer Derek Bason and has set a release date for early 2008. Grouping together some of the best writers and pickers in country music today with Jill's strong, emotion-laden voice this album is sure to hit you right in the heart and blow your music-lovin' mind! She is growing into her life purpose of reaching out and changing the world through music, and is continually exploring and multiplying the branches of her musical family tree.

"The more I can reach people, the more people I can reach. The more albums I can get out there, the more I can make a difference. I have a God-given voice, and an intense love for writing, performing, and sharing music. I hope you enjoy listening!" - Jill King

cd Somebody New
This second album for JILL KING is really terrific Honky Tonk and Country at its best, my favorite songs are Until I can let you go, the Texas shuffle Swingin´doors and the Billy Ray Cyrus´cover Somebody New, Jill King deserves a big success with this new album, highly recommended

Mark Greenwood

As it says at the top of the page "Jill King has a voice you won't forget." If you were a fan of "Jillbilly" you will not be disapointed with this record and if you are a new fan or on the fence about purchasing this record, go ahead and bite the bullet this record is worth the money!! All you have to do is listen to the clips and you will see how great Jill's voice is. I recommend that you listen to the title track, "Somebody New,"as well as "The Weight Of Love, & "Hurts Don't It." JILL king could easily become the next big thing and you could wow everyone by owning the record before she hits the bigtime.

Why Only Five Stars?!
Okay, full disclosure: I'm head-over-heels in love with Jill King. When I was working in Australia, and looking for a bit of U.S. of A. to keep me company, I stumbled on "Jillbilly" in a country record shop and thought I'd gone to heaven. Since then, I've wondered what Jill was up to and when we might get a new offering from her. "Somebody New" is the answer, and it's been oh, TOO long in coming! Jill is yanking all the same cords and pushing all the same buttons as on her previous effort and this boy couldn't be happier. This is real shoot-the-lights-out honky-tonk, folks. The girl has a wonderful rowdy streak as well as a deep sensitivity, and her amzing, formidable VOICE does all her songs proud. An excellent choice for those who like country that depends on songwriting, musicianship and cut-to-your soul SINGING rather than smoke machines and Resistol hats.
