"March Soundcheck (Suzie Vinnick at the Waterfront Bistro March 11, 2010)"

"...Emerging musician, Jill Jambor performed the opening set. The intimacy of her live performance best represented her songs -- relating to ‘the folk’ by displaying easy rapport with the audience between songs, with a lyrical and lustrous voice, pure, soft and melodious." - Music by the Bay April 2010 Newsletter


"Comment"

"From the heart, a great talent."
- Roger Scannura


"2008 Album 'To Give You an Idea'"

"It has young girl stuff mixed with real wisdom. Wrapped in good instrumentation. Clever use of [strings that] give it a warm, classy feel. It has lyric and it has vibe. A nice groove. " - Paul Snelgrove


"Folk on the Platter - By Brent Jeffries"

JILL JAMBOR- To Give You an Idea
Jill Jambor-2008-Socan

Jambor's eight track CD is another example of raw vocals taking centre stage alongside the guitar. "So Precious" opens the disc with tight harmonies and simple chording. Songs about love's lost and found, shoes on tired feet and the snow's of winter, have found their way onto this compilation.
Jambor produced the disc and plays guitar, tambourine and provides the vocals. She is joined by James McKie on fiddle. Her songs are fresh, deliberate and they make you listen. She opens her heart and soul to the audience with these original pieces.
"When it Snowed" captures the pure vocal talent of Jambor. Its quite possible she is not talking about snow after all but perhaps a relationship that has drifted by the wayside, just as the snow drifts across the open plains in Feruary across a Saskatchewan farmyard.
"May I?" and "I Forgot to Make Things Easy" show the versatility of the artist. It is apparent that Jambor is quite comfortable talking about life's ups and downs and the simple instrumentation allows the vocals to lead the discussion.
"The Reason" will speak to a listening mind. It will tell that mind that anything is possible when you put your mind to it!
She speaks of perseverance, tenacity and a willingness to face adversities head on. This is a unique offering from an emerging singer-songwriter.
[Jill Jambor and Luke Nares] are just two of the eight performers who played at the Knox Acoustic Cafe Youth Showcase. They each brought their own unique style and presentation to the stage with their performances and solidified in our minds that there is a future for the music industry, there will be new singer-songwriters emerging daily and new original material will surface. Look for these young emerging artists at festivals this summer and give them a chance to be heard. After all...even Bob Dylan started out as a young artist! - Georgain Bay Folk Society Soundwaves April 10, 2009
