Jill Jacks began her professional career singing backup with well known Detroit country and rock names The Forbes Brothers and Stewart Francke. By the late 90s she was writing constantly, fronting her own band and beginning to open for what would become a long list of prominent touring acts -- Bob Seger, John Waite, Emmylou Harris, Shawn Colvin, Patty Griffin, Dan Fogelberg, Marshall Crenshaw, Chris Issak, and Loretta Lynn. Her album Sunflower Girl shows us why she has won 37 Detroit Music Awards.

Born Faith Emontie Roach in Louisville, Ky. 15 year-old “Poopie” has been singing and performing since the age of 5.

She is in the studio assembling her debut album, but takes time from recording - and high school - to talk wtih us.
