It all started when...

Jilian Linklater's father turned off the cable every August when she was a teenager. In the process, he may have inadvertently derailed what could have been a brilliant career in medicine. His intent was to encourage Jilian and her siblings to find something productive to do in their free time besides just watch television.

So as a fourteen year old with no access to The Gilmore Girls, Jilian did the only thing she could do. She taught herself to play the guitar. 

Soon after, she won a Trip to Nashville, TN where she discovered that songwriting was a viable career path. 2 years later, she packed up her songs, moved to music city and put her career in medicine to rest

After a 4 year run at Belmont University where she simultaneously majored in songwriting and broke the high jump record for the Bruin’s track team, her success has further proven she chose the correct career path.

Jilian has had song placements in NBC's American Ninja Warrior, Amazon series ‘Eat the World’ with Emeril Lagasse, and A&E’s ‘Born This Way’. Her EP “Walking Stories” has accumulated over 6 million streams collectively on Spotify and most recently, you can hear Jilian’s Newest single “Time To Go” in the Disney Classic’s Bambi Re-release Trailer.

So it does look like medicine's loss may indeed be music's gain.

Jilian is gearing up to release her 3rd EP.

Jilian Linklater is obsessed with tiny houses and Has a dream of renovating a trailer.

Bob Boilen of NPR Tiny Desk calls Jilian’s Single “Brekaup With Your Best Friend” “the Poppiest Song I’ve Loved in Years” in a recent All songs considered blog post.

"I don’t care if you’re rock, pop, indie, folk, country or jazz-fusion, you will love Jillian’s music. You’ll love it because it has a way of cutting through styles and genres, and heading straight for your heart. That’s the kind of music we all love - the kind that connects us to the deepest things that matter most about our lives, and that’s what lies at the core of Jilian’s beautiful gift. Buy this music. Go see her play. She’s one of the rare ones."

— John Mays, VP of A&R, Centricity Music
