Los Angeles-based artist Jillian Ann is a singer, songwriter, composer, and producer who’s toured the country and the world as part of the critically acclaimed and fan favorite trip hop act Heavyweight Dub Champion. Working with the band, and now as a solo artist, Ann’s amassed a discography a mile long. To call the woman merely a musician though really doesn’t do her justice.
Multi-faceted and multi-talented, Jillian has not only created beautiful music, but also works in the visual realm as well. Working as a model and actress, she’s walked the runway for Versace, modeled in campaigns for L’Oreal, and appeared next to Gavin Rossdale in music videos. In addition, she’s also a talent behind the camera, directing, producing, and editing a number of music videos and short films.
Appearing nearly every weekend of the summer from BC to California to Colorado with HwDC and as a solo artist, Ann has become a staple of the vibrant West Coast festival scene. That said, leave it to a forward looking label like Simplify Records to pair this dance music veteran with the hottest newcomers on the West Coast, Love and Light. In their original composition, Ann’s haunting vocal pairs with Love & Light’s brand of playa-fied schlump funk in what is sure to be one of 2011’s biggest glitch hop tracks.
Throw in remixes from a who’s who of the best of the West and beyond, including An-ten-nae, NiT GriT, David Starfire, Splatinum, Knight Riderz, Stylust Beats, Shock-N, and Sugarpill, and you have this monster of an EP, Know Us.
