Music Sunday

Today I want to talk about one of my favourite voices of all times, Jill Johnson. She is Swedish, and she sings country music, as well as other types of music. Jill has been a favourite of mine for many years, and I absolutely love her voice.

Jill has worked with a lot of big names over the years; Rascal Flats, Lionel Richie, Ronan Keating and Nathan Chapman just to mention a few of them. 

Jill recently had her own TV show, on Swedish Television, called Jills Veranda (Jill's porch) where. It was taped in Nashville and featured different country artists. The show was well received by both the viewers and the critics.

She is currently collaborating with a country singer named Doug Seegers, a former homeless street musician from Nashville, that released his debut album last year. Doug has had great success in Sweden, and has also released his album, "Going Down To The River", in USA. On March 27 Jill and Doug's album "In Tandem" will be released. The album is produced by the multiple time Grammy Award nominated producer Joe Chiccarelli, and you will hear The McCrary Sisters on choir and it is said to feature some of the most respected musicians out of Nashville.

This video of Going Down To The River, the title track from Doug's debut album, also features another of my favourite Swedish singers, Magnus Carlson of Weeping Willow.
