Nationally Renown: Jill Sobule – Singer/ Songwriter/ Storyteller
|July 19, 2013|
At once brilliant, funny, poignant, topical and funny!
A singer, songwriter, storyteller, guitarist and gypsy with over seven albums and nearly two decades of recording, Jill Sobule has mused on topics such as the death penalty, anorexia, shoplifting, reproduction, the French resistance movement, adolescence and the Christian right.
ABOUT JILL SOBULE
Jill has performed with Neil Young, Billy Bragg, Steve Earle, Cyndi Lauper, Tom Morello and Warren Zevon and even inducted Neil Diamond into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame. She has appeared at Lannie’s several times, to rave reviews and sell out shows, including the as the co-star of the “Jill & Julia Show,” an unusual and mesmerizing combination of song and storytelling in collaboration with comedian/actress Julia Sweeney (Saturday Night Live’s “Pat!”).
Her recording career began in 1990 with her debut album “Things Here are Different,” produced by Todd Rundgren. Her 1995 self-titled album, “Jill Sobule,” yielded the hit songs “I Kissed A Girl” (the original) and “Supermodel.” Since then, she has continued to record, produce and tour with an ever-growing loyal fan base. Jill is considered a pioneer in crowd sourcing, with her 2009 fan-funded record, ”California Years.” She continues to be at the forefront of exploring and creating new models for artists in an ever-changing changing music industry.
A veritable gypsy, Jill divides her time between a busy touring schedule and a variety of other projects. The recently released “A Day at the Pass” finally captures an ongoing collaboration between Jill and John Doe (from the iconic punk band X) and was recorded live at The Pass studio on one fine day in Los Angeles.
ABOUT JILL’S COMPOSING/SINGING CAREER
Jill served as songwriter/composer for the hit Nickelodeon network show “Unfabulous” during that show’s three-season run. She composed the music for the off-Broadway show “Prozak and Platypus” and her songs have appeared in a multitude of films including ”Mind the Gap,” in which Jill herself co-starred. She has been a political troubadour for NPR stations across America and most recently performed original music at the keynote session for Netroots Nation. Jill is a longtime participant as well as musical contributor at TED.
WHAT’S COMING UP FOR JILL
She is currently recording her next record, “Dottie’s Charm’s” - a collaboration between her and 11 of her favorite authors, including: Rick Moody, David Hajdu and Jonathon Lathem, Jill is also working with Steve Cossin (The Civillians), Jim Lewis (FELA) and Robin Eaton (a longtime collaborator) on the musical, “Times Square.”
WHAT THE REVIEWS SAY
New York Times critic Jon Pareles says, “Jill Sobule can claim her place among the stellar New York singer-songwriters of the last decade. Topical, funny and more than a little poignant…grown-up music for an adolescent age.”
She’s one of a kind, a true American original.
