"Lois's Crazy Angel"

It gave me chill's listening to Lois's voice on Crazy Angel. The song was a real treat for me to wrap myself around like an old friend that was saying something i needed to hear. She is a gifted poet. Her songs are truely unique and drives the truth into the lyrics as her passion is reflected within them. She sings her heart out on "War and a piece of my mind". A real gem of a find, in the world. - Jill's thoughts online

I was Born and raised in Nashville,Tennessee. I have always been in and around the music industry here. My mom said that I started to sing before I started talking. She would also have to tell us kids, my brother and sister and I not to sing at the dinner table! We just all loved to sing.

So as you may have guessed I come from a long line of singer/songwriters. My sister is my mentor and constant critic who has made her way in her own right here in Nashville. She is Matraca Berg and she co-wrote "Strawberry Wine" for one. She is also the youngest person to be nominated for the Country Music Hall of Fame! My brother in law, Jeff Hanna formed the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. My mommy Icie Berg is the first person whom gave me lessons in believing in myself and my talent. My Aunt Sudie has been singing and writing in town for years and pushes me towards pursuing my talents.

I live for now in the shadow of greatness. I am fighting to make a niche for myself by surrounding myself with the talent that cloaks our bloodline. I am hopefully going to be able to poke my own musical holes into the underbrush of a family tree. My grandmother Inga Berg had a huge voice that boomed throughout the barn for the milking cows, the kitchen band as well as for us and the congregations at the Lutheran church she blessed in Wisconsin. My voice is just as unashamed of power and projection. This is where me and my main vocal history originates.

I love love love to be onstage and enjoy the rush of having the talent and poetic ambition to share as my personal gift to my children to cherish and learn and grow from.
