Jillian Bessett is a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist whose evocative lyrics and welcoming stage presence have endeared her to audiences throughout the southwest music scene. The keystone, however, is an instantly recognizable smoky alto voice that has prompted comparisons to Amy Winehouse, Feist, Nina Simone, and Adele.
In 2014 Bessett released Electric Moon a stripped back solo endeavor which came in at #100 on KXCI's Top 100 Albums of The Year. A full band filled out her next release with 2016's Mr. Airplane. Jillian and the Giants--aptly named for their giant electric sound and stature-- gigged furiously and put out two beautiful music videos for the singles "Mr. Airplane" and the locally loved "Chicago." Mr. Airplane has over 58K streams on Spotify and came in at #19 on KXCI's Top 100 Albums of the Year.
