Crissi Cochrane combines the heart of an East Coast singer-songwriter with the soul of Windsor/Detroit, living and writing just a stone’s throw from the birthplace of Motown. Originally native to the rural and beautiful Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia, Crissi fashions a sultry, soulful brand of popular music, jazz, and R&B, with silky vocals that call to mind the voices of Billie Holiday and Norah Jones.
Her song “Pretty Words”, from her latest album “Little Sway”, went viral on Spotify with more than 12 million listens, and her song “A Damn Shame” was used in the TV show Nashville. A prolific songwriter, Crissi also writes custom love songs by request, transforming true love stories into songs, with more than 60 custom songs completed since 2016, and resulting in her delivering a TEDx Talk, “Love Songs For Hire”, in 2018. Crissi is currently at work on her next album, to be released in early 2020, and also performs with her husband, Soul Brother Mike, as a co-vocalist and flutist in The Family Soul.
