REVIEWS FOR JILL SOBULE:


“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.” — NY TIMES

“Jill is a one-woman band, a record label, and performer all wrapped up. She does these story songs which are beyond charming, but you have to be careful because they do have a certain kind of bite. All I can say is that this is witty adult music for an adolescent age.” — Moses Znaimer

“Nostalgia Kills (her latest album) is a collection of some luscious pop tunes, written by someone who really knows their craft.” — PopMatters.com
