Jillian is an ardent environmentalist and is committed to human and animal rights and her lyrics often cut to the core of her beliefs. Her song "confess" speaks to her experimental lifestyle and the video to it was banned from traditional television stations barring a re-edit which she refused to do. The song "Know us" speaks to the prejudice that affects all those who look or act differently than the norm. Quiet Riot was Written while at a protest about not giving up your rights or dreams, Beauty and the Bass Encourages freedom and sexual expression Love Again Speaks about love through multiple lives. When not making music and art you can usually find her studying various forms of healing, magic, gardening, saving black cats and studying ancient spirituality and rituals.
