Nashville is a town that is full of great songwriters and if you have ever been here then you no doubt have come across any of the number of songwriter rounds the town has to offer. Jill Jack is a songwriter, not here in Music City but rather in Michigan, and has brought the spirit of the song to the historic Hartland Music Hall for the recording of her new album, Songwriter Sessions. Over two nights she performed in front of a live audience with the emphasis of the shows being on songwriting as she told the live audience the stories behind the songs in a storyteller like fashion. Her blending of folk and country gives her songs an Americana feel as is evident the moment you hit play and she lets her soulful yet powerful voice wrap around you with "Tides." With the idea being on the songwriting aspects, throughout the album Jill Jack uses the instrumentation simply as a way to accompany the vocals and lyrics whether it's on a slower paced song like "Child Within'" or the more mid-tempo cuts like "Fast Movin' Train." The idea to deliver a live performance that simply focuses on the thoughts behind the songwriting make this album have a unique aspect to it that shows Jill Jack's devotion and love for writing and performing. Her voice is a perfect fit for these songs which focus on the simplicity and diversities of everyday life that include lost love, new beginnings, etc… As an added bonus you get two studio tracks and an accompanying DVD making this album have a collector feel for her longtime supporters and newcomers get the whole picture of what Jill Jack and her music is all about.
