THIS IS common grounD
The objective of the Common Ground album project is to stir the question...
"ARE WE DOING THE RIGHT THING THE RIGHT WAY IN FOOD AND WATER?"
THIS IS JILL
Jill Riley was born into the 4th generation of a large Texas cattle ranching family. The story of an important debate among the second generation of cattlemen is captured in the songs of this album. Through this, Jill hopes to raise awareness within these two crucial areas. With a rare grace and honor for the generations past, Jill is setting out on a quest to boldy speak out, and humbly listen, in an effort to find answers.
"Jill's music embodies a seamless blend of artistry and authenticity ... making such a high wire stroll look shamelessly easy."
~ Ken Gullic, E One Entertainment
"I always appreciated Bruce Cockburn and Karla Bonoff and Jill reminds me of them. Beautiful!"
~ Phil Keaggy, American Guitarist
