“Jillian is the whole package, her voice immediately soothes and captures your attention, then her multi-instrumental mastery weaves a new dimension into her music, and of course there are her songs - well crafted poetry that is highly original and yet feels comfortable in a way that only the finest of songs provide. Jillian Matundan is a remarkable artist whose music will stay with you.”
