Alice Kristiansen is a Nashville-based singer and songwriter with a graceful approach to introspective pop songs. She first emerged in 2011 when she began to upload covers of songs by artists ranging from Adele to Arctic Monkeys and the Civil Wars to her YouTube channel, accompanying herself on piano or guitar. As an 18-year-old in 2014, she self-released an eponymous album of covers. Her channel got a significant boost in early 2015 when Ashton Kutcher shared her version of Taylor Swift's "Wildest Dreams" on social media. Over the next couple of years, she continued to post covers, sometimes several per month, while trying her hand at writing her own songs. In February 2016, Kristiansen released the original piano-and-strings ballad "Moon and Back." She followed it that summer with the poppier "Twilight Blue," and "Lost My Mind" arrived in mid-2017 via Music City East Productions.Jillian Dawn is a 24-year-old indie pop singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Rising from Mansfield, Mass., she now lives in Nashville where her style has evolved to dance-driven indie-pop and flares of country and rock. Jillian joined the acclaimed roster of songwriters in the all-female writer's round, Song Suffragettes, in January 2022. Currently working alongside Nashville’s brightest talent, Jillian recently kickstarted a new chapter with the pop-anthem of the late summer “Watered Down,” and her debut as an original cast member of She Believed She Could, a Nashville-based musical revue. Since her graduation from University of Miami Frost School of Music, Jillian has toured with headlining acts and hit festival stages around the country, all while preparing for her next musical project due this year.
