I am a professional singer/ songwriter and guitarist. I have a wide variety of music in my repertoire, as I play for senior citizens at nursing homes as well as fund raising events for Veterans and the general public at clubs and restaurants. My act is Americana, Blues, Rock and some country. My influences are groups from the 70's rock era including Heart, Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles. I can play your event as a soloist or with a small group of musicians. I am very versatile to the room, from carrying a small amplifier to a larger PA that covers a mid-size room for 30-50 people. For performances more than 300 miles from Nashville There may be an additional hotel expense. Thank you.

Jill Sissel Guitar/Singer Songwriter
Jill is an award winning songwriter and has been writing and performing her acclaimed Americana/ Blues music in the Nashville area for more than 18 years.
Jill's talent and skills as a guitarist show her experience that is very hard to match. Since the age of three, where the guitar was bigger that she was, she taught herself how to record and sing for her mom. When one hears of someone's passion showing up so early, you know that is their destiny. Just check out the wear on her guitar.
Jill recorded her first CD, “The Builder”, in Salt Lake City, in 1998, hiring several members of the late Chris LeDoux band to play with her on the CD.
For her 2nd CD, “Love Knows No Distance” she has garnered numerous awards and honors and nominated for Americana Album of the Year by Just Plain Folks.
Upon moving to Nashville, Jill began the task of co-writing and playing songwriter nights. At these venues in Nashville, she performed with well- known songwriters such as Walter Egan, (Magnet and Steel); and Irene Kelly. Walter Egan sang the duet, “Texas Moon” for the “Haunted Highway” CD project.
With the release of “Out of Nowhere” in 2003, the song, “Too Soon to Say”
was a top finalist in JP Folks Best Female Singer/Songwriter.
NSAI deemed the single “Safe Inside” as an Honorable Mention.
