Jazz Saxophonist and Grammy Nominee Tia Fuller Featured in National Multimedia J.Jill Campaign

First-time Grammy nominee and jazz saxophonist Tia Fuller has formed an exciting new brand partnership with J.Jill, the national omnichannel retailer of women’s clothing, accessories and footwear. Showcasing the brand’s stylish line of jeans, the Rhythm In Blues campaign features notable women in music who embody the brand’s easy relaxed, inspired style. With her image appearing across J.Jill’s online shopping platform, catalog, media ads, billboards, and signage in more than 270 retail outlets, Fuller dazzles in her role as a fashion influencer for women of style.

The spotlight is well-deserved. A dynamic performer and engaging personality, Fuller keeps up a full schedule as a touring and studio musician, composer, and music educator. With her fifth album with her quartet, Diamond Cut, nominated for Best Jazz Instrumental Album at the 61st annual Grammy Awards, set for February 10 in Los Angeles, she could become only the second woman in history to win this category.

“The most important thing for me is to be able to give back what has been given to me and to essentially be a light for others, whether it be on stage playing my saxophone or standing in front of a classroom inspiring my students,” says Fuller in a video highlight from the campaign, wearing an easygoing ensemble featuring J.Jill’s Authentic Fit slim-leg jeans.

A native of Denver, Colorado, Fuller has been performing on public stages since she was a teen. With impeccable training – she graduated magna cum laude with a BA in Music from Spelman College and summa cum laude with an MA in Jazz Pedagogy and Performance from the University of Colorado at Boulder – she’s worked with a who’s who of jazz and popular music artists, including Esperanza Spalding, Dianne Reeves, Terri Lyne Carrington, and the late Nancy Wilson and Geri Allen.

Fuller was catapulted into the spotlight when she was handpicked by global superstar Beyoncé to tour as part of her all-female band in 2006. As a result, Fuller played – and danced – through two worldwide tours: the Beyoncé Experience and I Am Sasha Fierce. In addition, while performing on the Sasha Fierce trek, the band was also working on the I Am … Yours: An Intimate Performance at Wynn Las Vegas, a live telecast. She has been a featured performer with Beyoncé at venues around the world, on television, and on videos.

Currently, Fuller serves as a full-time Professor at Berklee College of Music in Boston, sharing the extensive practical knowledge and rigorous training techniques she has amassed during her career.

In addition to Fuller, J.Jill’s Rhythm In Blues campaign features jazz violinist Regina Carter, Grammy-winning mezzo soprano Kelley O’Connor, rock guitarist Gretchen Menn, concert violinist Anne Akiko Meyers, and others.
