Singer/songwriter J. Tillman’s music paints beautiful portraits of love and life on the margins with the moody depth of Nick Drake and the country-influenced textures of Ryan Adams. Tillman first made a name for himself playing drums in a pair of indie rock bands, Saxon Shore and Stately, while attending college in New York City. In his spare time, however, he began writing material of his own, citing the music of Nick Drake and Pete Seeger, and the writings of Flannery O’Connor, as key influences.
Maintaining a steady output of solo recordings since 2004, Tillman had been a member or toured with Demon Hunter, Saxon Shore, Fleet Foxes, Jeffertitti’s Nile,Pearly Gate Music,]Siberian, Har Mar Superstar,Poor Moon,Low Hums, Jonathan Wilson, Bill Patton, The Lashes, and Stately English, and has toured extensively with Pacific Northwest artists Damien Jurado, Jesse Sykes, and David Bazan. He has also made contributions to albums by popular artists, including Beyoncé,Lady Gaga, and Kid Cudi, and has produced one album for Matthew Daniel Siskin, known as Gambles.
