Stranger 27/100 – Jill

100 Strangers - JillI had only just arrived uptown when I spotted our next stranger sitting on a bench taking a break from work. What a great start to the day.

Meet Jill.

What advice would you give to your younger self? “Don’t follow the crowd.”

What are your goals? “Hopefully my band will take off. I’m a lead vocalist. I actually met the lead guitarist on Craig’s List Musicians. He had the perfect style of music, and he and I wrote about eleven songs in a month and a half.”

Do you have a name for the band? “Forever May Fall… and we’re looking for our drummer and we’re ready to go.”

Are you connected with the music scene in Charlotte? “There’s actually a really great music scene. I’ve been in and out of it with open mics and stuff. It’s a little hard to find a dedicated drummer because they seem to kind of spread themselves thin. The three of us in my band are very dedicated, so we’re trying to find somebody that has the dedication to match and can also match the music style. Otherwise we’re doing pretty good.”

Can you describe the style of music? “If Breaking Benjamin and Flyleaf had a baby. {laughs}”

How would your friends describe you? “I do what I want. {laughs} Free spirit, leader… I don’t care what anybody thinks. I stick to my guns. That’s me… the most lovable asshole you’ll ever meet. {laughs}”

Technical Notes: We were in a well-lit area next to the curb. Her eyes really popped with this angle, so I had to pick this one for the project.
