Jill Jackson is an award-winning Americana artist based in Glasgow. Jackson first burst on to the UK music scene as the front woman of rock band Speedway, with whom she scored several UK top ten hits. When the band split Jackson embarked upon a career as a solo artist and developed a more authentic Americana musical style.
Shying from the limelight for a few years, Jackson spent a lot of time on the road supporting and touring with artists such as Bryan Adams, Rod Stewart, Albert Lee, Roger McGuinn as well as writing for former Spice Girl Melanie C. Jill has released a total of three solo albums, independently released via her website.
In 2016, Jackson emerged as a true solo artist and continues to enjoy playing live and writing new material with a UK Headline tour in 2018 in support of her 4th solo studio album, "Are We There Yet?"
