In The Spotlight

Jillette Johnson – “Normal Kid”

Hailing from New York, this singer and songwriter began learning to play piano aged 5 and started to write her own music aged 8. By the age of 12 she was playing full sets at a nearby restaurant and later in clubs. She played major festivals and supported Mary Lambert and Marc Broussard. Inspired by Joni Mitchell, Carole King and Regina Spektor, she debuted with her album “Water In A Whale” in 2013.

Written about making her dreams of being a performer become a reality, her new single is a luscious fusion of sonic influences, reaching across the decades. With elements of late 70s new wave, early 80s synth-pop and 90s R&B, it’s the rolling beat, electronic keys and crisp guitars that create an euphoric melody. And her smooth vocal acrobatics truly make this jam sound extraordinary.
