Jillian Rae is releasing her second recording this week. It's a four-song EP full of music that's been going through her head for a while.

Why not a full-length album? It's because the songs all had a common theme about traveling, being on the road, on the move … hence the title, Wanderlust. Jillian's EP release happens Saturday, Oct. 21, at Icehouse in Minneapolis.

Jillian is a busy musician; beyond her own work, she supports other acts like The Okee Dokee Brothers, Steve Kaul and the Brass Kings, Corpse Revier, Ilika Ward and more. And she's also a music teacher. We are really happy that Jillian Rae was able to stop at Radio Heartland with her band to play some songs from the new EP.

All songs from Jillian Rae's 2017 EP, Wanderlust.
