Acoustic solo artist.
Her unflinching blend of outlaw country, folk, blues and rock spans a horizon that Jill has managed to distill into a recognizable, edgy-yet-melodic groove and energy. Much like her persona, her approach to songwriting in each of her projects is unapologetic and vibrant, in the vein of Cary Ann Hearst or Sarah Shook. But catching her in solo mode will give you a special glimpse into the more delicate and idyllic side of Jill Westra. Her delivery of potent lyrics and raw emotion hold up in a tough crowd or intimate listening room environment.
