24 year-old New York City singer/songwriter Jillette Johnson who
released her Wind-up Records debut album, Water in a Whale, on June
25, 2013 will perform her song, "Torpedo" on Rachael Ray tomorrow,
December 5. 2013 has been a breakthrough year for Johnson who's
received numerous accolades for her powerhouse vocals, live
performances and debut album. She's "…one of our favorite new
artists…" says VH1 who featured "Torpedo" prominently in the season
finale of "Love and Hip Hop Atlanta"; Jillette performed the song on
Big Morning Buzz Live With Carrie Keagan, ABC Family's "The Vineyard"
featured the song as well. Johnson is also a Fuse "Fresh Cuts"

Johnson is an artist that draws you in with her depth and maturity in
her songwriting, her soaring vocals and thoughtful lyrics. Each song
tells a story. With the bravely vulnerable song "Cameron" Johnson
explores the struggle of a transgendered friend. Perez Hilton said of
it, "If Sara Bareilles - whom we love - made a gay song, it would be
this! So sweet and pop and good!" "When Jillette Johnson sings, you
can't help but to stand up and listen. The 24-year-old
singer-songwriter has a voice that fills the room…" said CBS News who
featured Johnson in their "In Tune" series. She's been called "…the
best of what Fiona Apple, Tori Amos, and Adele have to offer.
Melancholy and powerful, poetic and whimsical, her voice is a
powerhouse" by The Daily Front Row, praised by Nylon Magazine "Her
VOICE. Jillette can sing and she's not afraid to let everyone know
about it" and hailed by Baeble Music as the #1 artist you won't want
to miss at Bonnaroo exclaiming, "With a voice like Adele and a
songwriting style akin to Fiona Apple, it's easy to see why Jillette
Johnson has so many people excited."

Johnson wrote all of the songs for Water in a Whale which was produced
by Peter Zizzo (Celine Dion, Avril Lavigne, Vanessa Carlton) and
Michael Mangini (David Byrne, Joss Stone). Jillette Johnson played
Bonnaroo and Firefly this past summer and has been touring throughout
the United States. She recently played three sold out shows in New
York City – two at Joe's Pub and one at City Winery. She only has a
handful of dates left on her tour this year so if you cannot make it
