About Jill

Jill Dawson is a Chicago based Singer/Songwriter with a passion for inspiring others through song. Her music has been featured on WGN, Seventeen Magazine's Peace Body Blog, and endorsed by Dove's Self Esteem Fund's Global Ambassador, Jess Weiner. Dr. Jennifer Shewmaker of Operation Transformation lists Jill Dawson among Adele and Natasha Bedingfield in her "Positive Picks" for uplifting music listening.

Her acoustic anthem "When I Dream" encouraging girls to be bold, unique, and dream big was licensed as the theme for children's apparel company Pigtail Pals. Jill also partnered with nonprofit  LeaderSpark, composing the organization's theme "Change Our World Together." This past year, she also wrote and produced the music for the teen-focused organization We Stop Hate which won Nickelodeon's Halo Award.  In addition, Jill was honored to have her song "Never Home" (lyrics co-written with Greg Steele) recorded and released by the winner of the Midwest Artist Search, Gaia Galvan,

Jill's music has been distributed nationally via Midwest based record label, Emphasis Music. Her songs have been played on public and college radio stations, from east to west coast, and in a multitude of European countries, including Spain, Greece, Germany, France, and Russia. She also topped the Adult Contemporary chart on Australia's MP3.com while she resided there.

Today, Jill is focused on finishing another EP of songs, licensing her recorded music as well as continuing her work with the Melody for Change Project, an endeavor focused on using music to empower youth.

Be Brave and Create!

Today more than ever, any art, particularly music, is seen as a disposable product. People discount the courage of creativity, as well as it's authentic power in beautifying a moment, and how that ripples beyond ... Every musical note played, paint brush stroked, even camera clicked can contribute to a more glorious cosmos tomorrow. Be brave and create. ~Jill Dawson

    I wanted to let you know how much I like your newest song, Only One. I've listened to it several times since you first posted it. Wow! ... In particular how the melody is not just a vehicle for expressing the lyrics, but adds significantly to the emotional impact of the song. The song has the quality of many old favorites, even on first listening. Nice job!
