WHO IS JILLEE PARKER?

     Jillee Parker is a pop/hip hop artist based in Nashville, TN. Her music can reflect a multitude of genres including soul, dance, and r&b. While her songs vary in style, she is consistent in her use of word play and contradictions. She constantly showcases powerful music with a weakness. One song may swing drastically from a sharp rap of indifference and deceit, to a sweet melody of desire and loyalty. Often her songs are deceiving, the contradiction lies between the melody/delivery and the lyrics. However the love-hate theme remains in all that she does. Jillee's music elicits an emotional response, because you feel the story just as much as you hear it.
