We like to buy T H I N G S. But I'm in the business of F E E L I N G.
E N T E R T A I N M E N T J I L L is female voice over for characters with warmth, confidence, wit, sarcasm, and smooth seduction. It is vocally-focused compositions that set a mood and tone for unique branding, and digital production projects. It is the telling of stories with meaning by connecting to the way we listen. Sound is one of the most influential factors on human emotions. It moves us... to be better, go further, and dream bigger.
Y O U R B U S I N E S S is your dream. At Entertainment Jill, we get that. And in the new world, its more important than ever for brands and businesses to connect to their audiences, to tell them why you do what you do. You don't want to just tell them your dream, you want them to feel it. We give a voice to that mission.
An audience will only be moved when they feel motivated by what you're offering them, and a dream can only become a reality when it has a committed audience. Which means that...
A DREAM IS NOTHING WITHOUT A VOICE TO TELL ITS STORY.
W H O I S J I L L? My name isn't actually Jill. It's Calley. I'm a Minnesota native, and started my career in entertainment as a session and live singer in Dallas while studying jazz voice at the University of North Texas. I worked in and performed for events in New York City, joined the singer / songwriter scene of Williamsburg, and learned how to manage the people and systems make small businesses work. When I moved to Idaho to act as head of a music department at a private performing arts school, I thought, "At this point in my career, I'm like the Jill of all things Entertainment."
I've been fortunate to work with, learn from, and teach some of the greats in the modern world of production & entertainment - L & M Sound Design (New York City), Undertone Music (Minneapolis, MN), Michael League (Snarky Puppy), David Cook (Taylor Swift), Sarah Tolar (Starlight Orchestras, 92Y - New York City), Rosana Eckert (Hal Leonard Publishing, University of North Texas) Fara Sumbureru (Winner of 2013 Downbeat Jazz Vocalist - Performing Arts High School category), along with countless other musicians, producers, and friends. From Texas, to New York City, to Idaho, to Minneapolis, MN, I've collected experiences and ideas which lead me to the notion of building my own business around this magical, vibrational thing we call a voice.
And so, the concept of Entertainment Jill was born.
I once was told by a label executive that I'm "unreasonable." He had a big fat smile on his face, and I could tell he was trying to give me a compliment, but I remember being afraid that I'd done something to offend him... Now I get it. I love a good challenge, and I'm constantly looking for ways to evolve and foster community and creative integrity for females in media.
