Jillian Rae is a truly multi-disciplinary singer, songwriter, and performer. Always connected to her roots in Northern Minnesota, the Minneapolis musician has expanded on her upbringing as a classical violinist to become one of the most powerful and unique voices in the Twin Cities music scene.
“Medication” comes from the anticipated new project I Can’t Be The One You Want Me To Be. Refusing to be chained to any particular style or genre, Jillian still wants her albums to have a cohesive theme, to tell a story. She is huge proponent of the album format and doesn’t see herself ever pumping out single after single. For I Can’t Be The One, she says the theme is essentially ‘fuck it’, meaning we have so many expectations coming as us from all sides and the message from these songs is, who cares? Given that mindset, the songs on I Can’t Be are assuredly darker and more introspective than her previous work. Due out on May 31, 2019, The album title is also a middle finger to any expectations out there for what kind of music she should be making.
