She's "…one of our favorite new artists…" says VH1, been called "…the best of what Fiona Apple, Tori Amos, and Adele have to offer. Melancholy and powerful, poetic and whimsical, her voice is a powerhouse" by The Daily Front Row, praised by Nylon Magazine "Her VOICE. Jillette can sing and she's not afraid to let everyone know about it" and hailed by Baeble Music as the #1 artist you won't want to miss at Bonnaroo exclaiming, "With a voice like Adele and a songwriting style akin to Fiona Apple, it's easy to see why Jillette Johnson has so many people excited."
