If you’re a new artist, pay attention to the relationships you build along the way. Real, passionate people make all the difference,” said Jillette Johnson.
“We are very excited that Jillette Johnson was selected by Muve Music for their Muve First program in July,” said Christopher Graham, vice president of Digital Strategy & Sales for Wind-up Records. Muve Music has been an important partner to us for all of our releases and their excitement over Jillette’s debut album and her songwriting talent is a testament to their success.”
