Jill Andrews has been a musician all her life: from her first original tune in kindergarten - a ditty about the letter P - to the stage at Fillmore East. And this year, the heart-stopping voice and June-apple face of the everybodyfield's embarks on an exciting new solo project.
Jill picked up a guitar for the first time when she was 19 and a camp counselor in East Tennessee. Armed with only three chords, she had all she needed to create deep and soulful songs with lonesome melodies and haunting lyrics.
It was also at that summer camp where Jill met future bandmate Sam Quinn. It was an undeniable musical union. When they joined with dobro player Dave Richey, the everybodyfields were born. The band was unstoppable. And the face of Tennessee's roots music would never be the same.
As the fan base grew, Jill was fueled by the fact that people really believed in the everybodyfields. She says of this time in her life, "We weren't trying to be famous, but people kept encouraging us, so we kept playing."
