Songstress, Jill Cohn returns in 2014 with a new release, “Yellow Rose” 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. 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 many well-known artists including Jewel and Dave Matthews.
