A member from the Display Actor’s Guild since she was a kid, Jill Gioia has branched away from acting to begin with performing like a single musician. Her gritty, soulful rock and roll style has gained her jobs starting at several Third Vision Blind displays, including their overall performance on the Past due Display With David Letterman. She’s also performed with 98° Levels, B-52’s, Berlin, as well as the Security alarm. Gioia also received the 2000 Steve Madden Rock and roll N Sole Lady Band Search Competition — within the reward, Madden designed a shoe called after her, known as the “Jill Pleasure Shoe.” She was also a finalist within the American Music Awards Coca-Cola SONGS Award, which centered on unsigned performers. A self-produced Compact disc of Gioia’s music can be obtained from her site, www.jillgioia.com.
