Video #87 of 1000 – Jillian Christmas – Two Stars. Recorded at Jillians’s place on June 16, 2012 in HD (1080p on XA10).

This lyrically driven, East-Van collaboration combines the succulent spoken word & writhing rhythms of poet Jillian Christmas, with the boot thumping vocals and guitar melodies of singer Chelsea D. E. Johnson. Top that with savage accordion lines, heartbreaking harmonies and a few other tantalising secret ingredients and you’ve got yourself the remedy for whatever it is that ails you.

Jillian is a poet with a penchant for love stories and heart-heavy lullabies, born and raised in Markham, Ontario she currently lives in Vancouver, BC. She is an enthusiastic collector of wayward hearts, warm hugs and random celestial-experiences; spinning them all into stanzas that sound so sweet on her tongue that they drip from her lips like honey.
