Jill Jackson

The band’s cover of Christina Aguilera’s ‘Genie In A Bottle’ scored Jill and Speedway their 1st UK Top Ten hit. In 2007 former Spice Girl Melanie C recorded two of Jill’s songs (‘Don’t Let Me Go’ and ‘What If I Stay’) for her fourth studio record “This Time”(2007). Jill’s work has also attracted attention from TV and film with her songs appearing on shows such as Eastenders, Shameless and BBC Lip Service. In May 2012 Jackson puts out her new album ‘Getaway Driver’.
