COTTAGE GROVE SENTINEL • DECEMBER 19, 2018 •
Seattle singer plans soulful Solstice show in Cottage Grove
By Caitlyn May
Last year, Jill Cohn wasn’t think-
ing about writing music.
She had just gotten out of a
seven-year relationship that saw
her pick up and move from Seat-
tle to Colorado. Th e last thing on
her mind was resuming a touring
schedule or creating new songs.
“I didn’t want to write a break-up
record,” she said in a phone inter-
view from Washington. “I was fo-
cused on healing my broken heart
but then things started getting nice
in my life. I was feeling happy again
and having a more positive outlook
on my future and I started writing
She took those songs with her
on tour, mostly traveling between
Washington and Oregon, getting
back into the groove.
“Two songs came down the pike.
One called ‘Possibilities’ and one
called ‘Legends’ and I thought I
was ready to make another re-
cord,’” Cohn said.
Th e result was Balanced on the
Rail, a record Cohn will be releas-
ing in Cottage Grove on Dec. 21

ing homage to Joni Mitchell, Sar-
ah McLachlan and the Counting
Crows, she says it’s not that cut and
during a Winter Solstice Concert
at the Cottage Grove Events Venue.
While Cohn’s promotional ma-
terial describes her music as pay-
When Cohn fi nally felt ready to
make music again aft er her break-
up, she contacted her old band in
Seattle and the group recorded the
record over the span of six days.
Now, Cohn is taking the record
“Even now when everyone has
hundred of songs on their phone,
live shows are important. I just
connect with an audience,” she

ily-friendly, according to Cohen
and is priced on a sliding scale. En-
try starts between $5 and $10 per
“I’m super excited about it and
I’m excited to do a Solstice concert
because not everyone celebrates
Christmas or Hanukkah so it’s nice
to have a gathering for folks about
the season in general,” she said.
“It’s all on a sliding scale, whatever
folks can aff ord because of the hol-
iday season and money is tight.”
CDs will also be available for sale
during the concert and Cohn’s mu-
sic can be found online at reverb-
“Th e hardest thing in the world
to do is describe your own mu-
sic,” she said. “I’m always fl attered
when I have those comparisons to
Joni Mitchell or Counting Crows
because that’s the music I cut my
creative cloth from. More than
anything though, I’m a folk artist
and a songwriter. I hope to con-
tribute my experience with some-
thing that matters to people and
that they can connect with.”
Cohn started connecting with
people through music in her home
city of Seattle where she got her
footing as a musician.
“I started writing songs and put
out my fi rst CD and then I realized,
you know, playing shows was going
to be the way to get that out to peo-
ple,” she said. “I love traveling so I
started doing small trips. At fi rst it
was just here and there and then it
became my full-time occupation.”
Eventually, Cohn landed open-
ing gigs for Jewel and Dave Mat-
thews. In 2001, she was a top fi ve
fi nalist in the Lilith Fair Talent
Search and since 1999, has released
12 independent releases — some

Follow these fl ying tips:
• When fl ying, make sure
you check the airline’s re-

for checked bags.
• Avoid checking bags

• If you do check luggage,
make sure you have all your
