Jillian Rae
 

Jillian Rae was named one of 5 finalists in Vita.mn's 2014 "Are You Local?" contest to find the best new Twin Cities band.

“You will fall head over heels for Jillian Rae.”
-Scott Herold, Cause Rock, Cities 97

“A rollicking mix of folk, rock and bluegrass... With a soulful voice and spirited energy, [Rae] delves deep into romantic tumult on Heartbeat.”
-Vita.Mn

“A triple treat on vocals, fiddle, and composition, she also surprises by showcasing snarling guitars and rock 'n' roll rhythms, along with some country-western seasoning. The songs are so bright, and Rae's singing so hopeful, that it takes a few moments to realize her songs are mostly about the vicissitudes of love. It is, as a whole, a joyous expression of strength and resilience.”
-Star Tribune

-Hymie's Vintage Records

“What she brings to the table from vocals to her violin is straight up fantastic.”
-Paul Whyte, Duluth Reader
