Ever since she was a little girl, Jill Cohn wanted to be a singer.
“I was fortunate enough to get music lessons as a kid,” Cohn said.
Hailing from Seattle, Wash., this singer/songwriter loves coming to Colorado, especially Grand Junction. Now she’s all set to play two local shows — Edgewater Brewery (905 Struthers Ave.) on Sunday, May 25, at 3 p.m., and The Ale House (2531 N. 12th St.) on Monday, May 26, at 6:30 p.m. Both performances offer free admission.
“It’s such a cool town,” Cohn said. “It will be good to get into the pub scene again. It’s a little more down to earth.”
MUSIC FLOWS IN HER BLOOD
Cohn explains her sound as a little bit of everything — from rock to country, with a little folk thrown in.
“Everything I write about has somehow intertwined with my own experience in life,” Cohn said.
As a student, Cohn excelled in music. When she went to college, her folks didn’t want her to study music, but she persisted and eventually landed in Los Angeles to pursue her dreams as a musician.
She worked hard for many years (becoming a full-time musician in 1996), for awhile accompanying her songs with piano, then guitar. The next step was moving back to Seattle, where she put her first record out as an independent touring artist.
“I’m happy being out playing music,” Cohn said. “It’s nice to know it’s how I make my living and I see that as a huge accomplishment.”
