The only and only Jill Sobule is coming to Marin County, California for a special Sunday afternoon house concert co-presented by Inside Lands and Treehouse Concerts.
This show will take place in the living room of a beautiful private home in San Anselmo. It's truly the ideal listening space and a rare chance to hear Jill perform an intimate solo acoustic show—but that means space is limited to only 55 guests. So reserve your seats while they last.
Address and details will be sent to you after you make your advance donation here on Ticketleap. If you prefer to donate at the door, RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll reply with the address. But seats can only be guaranteed with an advance donation on Ticketleap.
Hope you can join us!
Jill Sobule is a Denver-born, Los Angeles based singer-writer in the smart and witty tradition of Randy Newman and Warren Zevon. Over 11 albums and more than two decades of recording and performing, Jill has mused, with great compassion, empathy, wit and considerable charm on a wide range of subjects including the death penalty, depression, anorexia, shoplifting, alzheimer’s disease, coming of age, intolerance, and the Christian right.
Her recording career began in 1990 with her debut album Things Here are Different, produced by Todd Rundgren. She found commercial and critical success a few years later with her 1995 self-titled album, which introduced a large radio audiences , and adoring critics, to her witty and personal songcraft. “Jill Sobule” included the original (and oft-banned) “I Kissed A Girl” as well as the satirical gem “Supermodel” which was featured on the hit soundtrack of the movie Clueless. Since then, she has continued to record, produce and tour with an ever-growing loyal fan base and to critical acclaim. Her 2000 album “Pink Pearl” rightly takes its place among the most thoughtful, diverse and funny albums of the decade, taking on topics of faith, heartbreak, anorexia, and infidelity.
Jill is considered among her peers as a pioneer in crowd sourcing and connecting directly with her audience without record company interference. Through her website “Jillsnextrecord.com” she completely funded the California Years, which continued to showcase her exceptional songwriting. Jill’s innovative, tiered system of contributions and rewards formed the foundation for the Kickstarter.com model. She continues to be at the forefront of exploring and creating new models for artists in an ever-changing changing music industry, including personally connecting with fans through house concerts and her active engagement in social media.
Jill has performed with artist ranging from Neil Young, Billy Bragg, Steve Earle, Cyndi Lauper, Tom Morello, to Warren Zevon and John Doe, and as well as inducting Neil Diamond into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame. She can be seen live as a solo performer as well as the co-star of the Jill & Julia Show, an unusual and mesmerizing combination of song and storytelling in collaboration with comedian/actress/author Julia Sweeney.
In the words of New York Times pop music critic Jon Pareles, “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…grown-up music for an adolescent age.”
