Every once and awhile, a song will come along at just the right moment to make a lasting impact. Although Jenny Gill grew up surrounded by incredible music, it was one of the 90s most surprising hits that became an all-time favorite.
Yes, Gill is the daughter of country superstar Vince Gill, but she has a bluesy, soulful sound that's all her own. She began performing at just five years old, giving her the perfect stepping stone to finding her own path. After spending time on the road with her parents and graduating from college, she dove deeper into songwriting and began working for a music publisher. In 2010, her stepmother Amy Grant hired her as a background singer, giving her a new sense of confidence in her singing voice.
Now, the 34-year-old seasoned talent is releasing her debut solo EP, The House Sessions. Produced by Vince himself, the project is a culmination of personal experiences that evolved into personal and relatable story-songs.
Growing up in Nashville with a treasure trove of music to explore, it's easy to hear an array of influences and blues-inspired elements in Gill's sound. Naturally, that partially evolved from the music she listened to as a kid. When asked to name a country song that was especially influential to her, Gill noted Deana Carter's signature 1995 hit.
