Jillette Johnson – Love Is Blind


With her nuanced lyricism and shapeshifting vocals, local artist of the week singer/songwriter/pianist Jillette Johnson is the rare artist who needs little sonic accompaniment to make an indelible impact. Produced by Dave Cobb (the Grammy Award-winner known for his work with Jason Isbell and Sturgill Simpson), Johnson’s sophomore album All I Ever See in You Is Me offers up sparsely orchestrated songs centering on her spirited piano work and graceful vocal command. Like only the most timeless songwriters, Johnson finds infinite depth within that simplicity, tapping into her quiet intensity and classic sensibilities to capture the subtlest of feelings. Listen to her single “Love Is Blind” below and all week long on Lightning 100. Don’t miss her free performance this Friday at Soulshine Pizza Factory!
