Windsor singer-songwriter Crissi Cochrane will hit the stage for an intimate concert at Nola’s on January 26 at 7pm.
Native to the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia, Crissi fashions a sultry and soulful brand of popular music, jazz, and R&B. Silky vocals reminiscent of Billie Holiday and Norah Jones glow atop the purr of her Fender Jaguar electric guitar.
On stage, refined songs reveal more than a decade’s worth of experience first gained as a young girl growing up in small town Canada, diligently writing, recording, and performing. For a few years, Crissi settled in the nearby city of Halifax, studying Music Business and becoming known for her melodic folk/pop style. Her debut studio album Darling, Darling emerged in the summer of 2010, recorded in Chicago with musician Mike Kinsella (of Owen, American Football, Joan of Arc), but not before a trip to Canada’s southernmost city set the wheels of change into motion. Crissi fell in love with Windsor, Ontario and neighboring Detroit and moved there by summer’s end.
Today she is the wife of songwriter/bassist Michael Paul (Soul Brother Mike, The Walkervilles, Michou), and has been seen sharing stages with Walk Off The Earth, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Sarah Harmer, and Jesse Cook. She is presently at work on a new album, to be released in 2018.
She’s also performing at Rino’s Kitchen on Jan. 12 and The Windsor Beer Exchange on Jan. 19.
