Jill Cohn's toe tapping road songs and heart-string tugging ballads had the Los Feliz Journal (Los Angeles, CA) naming her album a top ten indie pick. After performing over 200 concert dates during 2016, Cohn greets Spring 2017 with a busy tour schedule in continued support of her 11th independent release, "Heartstrings Touching Ground" which was 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. Based in Seattle, Jill became a full time touring artist upon the release of her 4th album, "the Absence of Moving" in 1999 and has continued to play nation wide since then. She recently relocated her home base to the Roaring Fork Valley stating that she was longing for a mellower home life and how this change is the inspiration behind new songs that she is currently writing.
