She has performed with several other Canadian musicians including Mike Rud, Andrew Rathbun, Amanda Tosoff, and Larnell Lewis. In 2020, Jillian co-wrote and sang in what became the “Saskatoon Suite” with Silas Friesen which will be released in CD format in January 2024. Jillian’s most recent recording and art-based film “Flurry” blends her visual art practice with musical soundscapes along-side local artist and musician, Darrin Kostur. Jillian is a member of the local Footnotes Big Band and is an occasional guest artist with the SJO. She enjoys teaching, collaborating with like-minded artists, and writing and arranging music for various ensembles.
Graham Dyck: Every Artist has their story…some are child prodigies who discover their love for music and talents at a young age while others enable their musical passion to develop years later. The latter is that of Crooner, Singer and Songwriter Graham Dyck.
Graham took a different journey that had him discover how music flows from and within him, desperate to escape. This talented Crooner is a Paramedic and Firefighter, but for the past few years, any spare moments have been devoted to ramping up his music career. His crystal clear, pop-infused vocals captivate and engage while his stage presence and sincerity connects him with the audience like they are family.
Like most Artists, Graham originally started out performing covers of well-known classics but he had so much to say that he entered the studio to record an album of his own original songs ultimately releasing the full length album “Find Myself”. This album contains songs that cover an exploration of the emotions he felt during periods of personal challenges and triumphs. His music comes from a deep place that music lovers have strongly embraced. Graham has a message to share with everyone and he loves to share his story through music.
Jessica Robinson: Jessica Robinson began her music career professionally at the age of 16 and music has been her life ever since. After training at Grant MacEwan’s esteemed music program, opportunities presented in Nashville. This led Jessica to a successful career as a country music artist/songwriter for several decades including three albums, numerous awards, music videos and a cherished performance at Carnegie Hall. She has since returned closer to her jazz/classical roots and counts her recent performances with both the Saskatoon Jazz Orchestra and the Saskatoon Symphony as some of the most memorable of her career. Jessica is currently looking forward to a vibrant future with new music in incubation…
