Jill Cohn / Bio

A radio station recently called a concert with Jill Cohn "an evening of Folk Americana Bliss" and her Soul-Stirring Voice in combination with lush arrangements, toe tapping road stories and heart-string tugging ballads had the Los Feliz Journal (Los Angeles, CA) naming her album a 2012 top 10 indie pick.

"Her songs are beautifully crafted, sometimes bittersweet and sometimes hopeful, but ever easy and melodic with soulful and savvy lyrics" - Chicago Tribune 5/2014

Songstress, Jill Cohn returns in 2015 with a new release, "Heartstrings Touching Ground" produced by Grammy Award Winning Producer Malcolm Burn, who has credits with Bob Dylan, Daniel Lanois and is best known for his production on "Red Dirt Girl", by EmmyLou Harris. After hearing Jill's song, "Yellow Rose" which is about the struggles of the common man against corporate America, Burns invited the Seattle Songstress to record with him in his Kingston NY studio. This collaboration has resulted in a stunning new collection of deeply personal songs with a universal message of hope.

Cohn's songs pay homage to artists like Joni Mitchell, Sarah McLachlan and the Counting Crows, with tunes ranging from personal reflections to musical contemplations of domestic violence and vanishing rain forests. During a recent college performance, students favorably compaired Jill's music to current female folk/pop stars Sara Bareilles, Lily Allen and Lorde.

2014 found Cohn in good timing with the release of her "Yellow Rose" EP early in the year, as many pop media outlets, including MTV deemed 2014 the year of the female songwriter. Her song "Yellow Rose" Charted on Americana Radio in early 2014 and the Seattle Songstress had a break-out year touring in support of the EP by making just over 170 concerts appearances in 2014.

Raised in a small town in Eastern Washington, Cohn started singing before she started talking, and music has always been an integral part of her journey. A full-time musician since 1999, Cohn has released nine critically-acclaimed independent releases, has gained notoriety with her songs placed in popular TV shows and continues making her live shows the centerpiece of her musical endeavors. In addition to being an endorsee of TAYLOR GUITARS and ELIXIR Strings since 2001, she was a top five finalist in the Lilith Fair Talent Search and has opened for a long list of many well-known artists, but stand-outs include: David Bromberg, Cheryl Wheeler, Vonda Shepard, Loudon Wainwright III, Jewel and Dave Matthews.
