Nashville, Tenn. (September 22, 2017) – Big Loud Records newcomer Jillian Jacqueline is dropping the needle on her career today (9/22), showcasing a bold, next-generation brand of Country with the release of her stunning debut EP, SIDE A. Comprised of nine raw and confessional tracks penned alongside hitmakers like GRAMMY-winner Lori McKenna, Sarah Buxton, and Trent Dabbs, SIDE A introduces Jacqueline’s progressive but organic Country sound and sweet-heat vocals, as the Chester Springs, Pennsylvania, native opens up a musical diary of striking, no-holds-barred storytelling. The project will be immediately available for download and worldwide streaming via all digital platforms.

“I’m so proud and ready to share SIDE A, the first collection of songs off of my debut full-length album. I hope that anyone who’s listened and loved my music so far feels as excited about this release as I do,” shares Jacqueline. “I don’t take it lightly that I get to share my stories with you guys, and these songs in all of their transparency, heartache, pride, humor, growth, and ‘humanness’ are just the beginning. “Over the summer Jacqueline offered a sneak peak at the project by unleashing four razor-sharp tracks, all of which connected with Country fans right away. Her first release – the unflinching breakup anthem, “Reasons” – has already been streamed over 11 million times on Spotify alone, and each of the other three – “Hate Me,” “Bleachers,” and “God Bless This Mess” – have topped 1 million plays. Produced by Tofer Brown, SIDE A will include each of those standouts, plus two all-new tracks – the delicate opposites-attract ballad, “Sugar and Salt,” and a grooving haters-gonna-hate anthem called “Holier Than Thou.” In addition, never-before-heard acoustic versions of “Reasons,” “Hate Me,” and “God Bless This Mess” will also be included. SIDE A marks day one of this promising artist’s rise, but with a non-stop songwriting drive, it’s also just the tip of the creative iceberg. Jacqueline plans to follow up her striking debut with SIDE B in early 2018, with more information about that project coming in the near future. Meanwhile, the seasoned performer has spent this summer opening shows for Billy Currington and Dwight Yoakam, and will continue taking her music to fans around the world. Tomorrow (Saturday 9/23) she’ll be onstage at the massive Pilgrimage Music and Arts Festival in Franklin, TN, and then heads overseas for a three-day tour of London, England. After returning stateside, she’ll close out the year with shows in Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, and Arkansas.
