Jill Johnson is one of Sweden’s most loved artists and has during the last years really put country music on the Swedish music map – both through her own studio albums where she’s collaborated with several of USA’s most prominent songwriters within the genre, and critically acclaimed tours but also with the help of the successful SVT series Jills Veranda, Nashville.
Jill is one of our most diverse artists, and although country music is the genre closes to her, she has a love and curiosity for several other genres and forms of expression which definitely has contributed to her experiencing one of the most successful and eventful times in her career so far!
In addition to the release of own music and tours, Jill has also done 3 seasons of Jills Veranda, Nashville, three seasons with her show JILL, recorded a duet album with American country artist Doug Seegers, toured in Europe, one season with the critically acclaimed show “That’s Life” at The Theatre in Gothenburg as well as a Sweden tour with the same show. She concludes the Spring 2018 by taking “That’s Life” to the classical venue the China Teater in Stockholm.
In the summer of 2017, the EP Rodeo was released – the EP was a sequel to the “For You I’ll Wait” from 2016. The single ‘This Is Your Last Song’ is the last song Jill wrote to the person she was then and as a beginning to the new. In the same year, the Christmas album “Christmas Island” was released. It was a collaboration with conductor and musician Anders Berglund.
In the later part of 2017, the third season of Jills Veranda, Nashville was aired with guests like Ana Diaz, Lisa Nilsson, Dregen, Mia Cuts, Erik Lundin and Maxida Märak.
