Crissi Cochrane

Windsor, Ontario
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 2014 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 70 custom songs completed since 2016, and resulting in her delivering a TEDx Talk, “Love Songs For Hire”, in 2018. Crissi's latest album, HEIRLOOM, is set to be released on February 29, 2020, featuring 11 songs backed by a solid rhythm section and a small orchestra.
