Massachusetts native Jillian Dawn is a self-proclaimed small-town musical sweetheart. It is artists like her that keep local music scenes thriving. Only 22 years old, her newest contribution is a single called “For The Night,” which is out today on her own independent label.
The song balances country, pop, and solid production under the words of a blooming lyricist.
“‘For The Night’ came to me on a whim last February,” says Dawn. “Lyrically, it explores the decision to ‘upgrade’ a relationship to something more. It further elaborates on the uncertainty, fear and desire that you feel when you let yourself fall in love. It mirrors those notions musically; the calm, guitar-driven verses show vulnerability, while the big, choir-like choruses show power and longing at the same time. It makes me feel that ‘something’ every time I listen, and I hope you feel that way too.

The track serves as the first of two singles being released to promote her upcoming EP How Simple This All Started.
Dawn’s background in music is something to boast about. She graduated from the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami–routinely called one of the best such learning institutions in the world. That has put her on track to go from local artist to national artist.
In 2020 she released her first full-length album 20/20, which featured the song “Vices” which has since racked up over 30,000 streams. The tune even got a remix release.
