New York City singer/songwriter Jillette Johnson released her gorgeous Wind-up Records debut album, Water in a Whale, on June 25, 2013. It debuted on several charts including: #12 on the iTunes Pop Chart, #13 on both the Billboard Heatseekers and New Artist Charts and #28 on the Pop Chart.
Written by Jillette Johnson and produced by Peter Zizzo (Celine Dion, Avril Lavigne, Vanessa Carlton) and Michael Mangini (David Byrne, Joss Stone), Water in a Whale is the follow up to her 2012 critically acclaimed EP, Whiskey & Frosting.
VEVO premiered the video for single “Cameron” on their homepage carousel on July 1st. The bravely vulnerable “Cameron” explores the struggle of a young transgender boy and gives an inspirational voice about staying true to your authentic self.
Jillette Johnson recently played Bonnaroo and Firefly. She will be touring throughout the United States for the rest of the year, making a stop to play Joe’s Pub in NYC on July 16th and then co-headlining a tour with the band Satellite. More dates will be added soon.
