ABOUT

Are We There Yet? is the long awaited 5th solo album by Paisley born singer songwriter Jill Jackson, a record that bears the hallmarks of a 25yr musical journey that has taken her from Paisley to Top of The Pops to playing in every State of America (50 States in 50 Days.....yes really!)

In the time since 2012’s 5-star reviewed The Ones That Got Away, Jill temporarily relocated to Nashville where she became immersed in Music City’s culture of storytelling songwriting.

“Jill Jackson is a songwriting storyteller transporting you into her world through music. Lyrically and vocally tender, beautifully depicting life, love and loss with each well crafted song. A voice reminiscent of the late Karen Carpenter, Jackson’s voice aches with emotion and honesty, drawing you in line by line.”

Personal struggles and a bucket list hike of the Grand Canyon saw the Celtic Connections award winning artist return overflowing with lyrical and musical inspiration. These momentous changes of life and reflective nature flow through every word and note of the 10 new songs on Are We There Yet? – an uplifting, accomplished, mature record.

“These songs fell out of my heart and guitar with a little bit of country, rock n roll and old timey.”

Produced by Boo Hewerdine (Eddi Reader, Emily Barker), Are We There Yet? combines innovative, playful arrangements that would not sound out of place in Lindy Hop, Harlem or the heart of the deep South. With an unabashed embrace of gleeful, melodic choruses delivered in Jill’s unmistakeable warm and heart-wrenching voice.

“Boo Hewerdine was incredible to work with and we were on the same crazy wavelength from day one. He completly understood my vision for this album and the sound I wanted to create.”
