Jillian Aversa’s music, ethereal and uninhibited, reflects the awe and passion of timeless nature. Its soul-touching alchemy has attracted attention and multi-award-winning acclaim, deriving from her talent both as a classically trained vocalist and songwriter.
Hailing from Boston, Jillian began singing in her family’s home studio at the age of six. She recalls with a laugh, “My father had me record a song about saving the rainforests!” Nevertheless, her love of music was sparked, and she soon committed her life to the field. Developing herself first as a vocalist and performer, Jillian graduated with honors from the prestigious Peabody Conservatory of Music, winning the George Castelle Memorial Award
in voice... But a wandering eye led her to the arena of computer music, and she soon began to supplement her classical studies with compositional ones
With her debut albums Origins
and Through Sand and Snow
, Jillian responds to the lack of lyric-centric works in contemporary New Age/World music - and in such a dauntless manner that it is difficult not to take notice.

Jillian's music is being broadcast to more than 8 million listeners worldwide, spanning over 70 stations including XM and Sirius satellite radio - a list that is rapidly growing. Origins debuted at #8 on the New Age Reporter radio charts for two consecutive months and has been consistently ranking in the top 10 on numerous stations, while Jillian was named “Best Futuristic New Age Singer” on iNewAge.com, a reviewer dubbing her “better than Enya.” The album received the #1 New Age Album
