Jilla Webb

Professor of Practice

Jilla Webb is the daughter of the lead vocalist for the Harry James Orchestra, so it's no surprise that she is continuing the legacy. Jilla is an extraordinary performer, artist, and educator.  An original talent, her expressive singing style, and versatility perfectly complement a variety of styles. Now, as a Professor of Practice at Auburn University, she is expertly passing on her expert knowledge to the next generation of commercial music artists.

Jilla has performed at events in Las Vegas Casino's, theaters, and other venues from Singapore to Los Angeles.  Some of these include the 75thAnniversary of Pearl Harbor Celebration in Hawaii, American Bandmasters Association, the Alabama Shakespeare Theater, Le Capitole Du Quebec, the Pacific Southwest Emmy Awards Show, and the Ryman Theater in Nashville. She has toured with the USO, opening for Wayne Newton, and other productions around the world.

Some of her commercial credits include singing commercials for NBC, ABC, FOX, CBS, and the WB. She was the vocal talent for Regis and Kathy Lee, Candid Camera, Dharma and Greg, Hawaiian Air, Rosie O'Donnell, and Must-See TV, to name a few.

Still an active performer and recording artist, currently, Jilla is recording a new solo original record.  You can also find her CD featuring her mom's Harry James Orchestra arrangements on iTunes, and her albums, "Balance" and "Timeless" on her website.

"I'm looking forward to more recording, touring and teaching. Let's keep music alive and pass it on to the next generation of extraordinary artists!" ~ Jilla Webb
