Heavenly Dogs Collective
Ramen is an artist from Heavenly Dogs, a multidisciplinary art & design collective based in Detroit. Founded on the ideas built from numerous subcultures, we believe in utilizing an unorthodox set of skills to create unique visual and functional designs. Members of The HD Collective specialize in various mediums, from automotive design to writing on your property. The concept of freedom draws a strong line through all of what we do. We design in the name of honesty and produce tools to allow people to accomplish their dreams more efficiently. Loyalty to the people is our top priority.
Jill Jack’s magical connection to her audience is the result of her generous artistry. By combining her gifts as a conceptual visionary with a warm gathering of musical influences, Jill touches that secret heart of ours with her melodies and lyrics. In her hometown of Detroit, Jill needs no further explanation. She’s been lauded in equal measure to her talents: Since 1997 she has won 37 Detroit Music Awards in every conceivable category that applies to a singer-songwriter. Much of this provincial success is due to her charming stage presence and emotive songwriting. It’s simply called connecting, and it’s the bounty of a true songwriter open to all of life: her own defeats, victories, hopes dashed, dreams fulfilled, her muse, her loneliness, her misplaced love and her romantic successes.
