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 away from the birthplace of Motown.

Silky vocals reminiscent of Billie Holiday and Norah Jones glow atop the purr of her Fender Jaguar electric guitar. Her songs reveal a decade of experience first gained as a young girl growing up in Atlantic Canada, studiously writing, recording, and performing. Drawn to settle in Windsor Ontario in 2010, the influence of Canada's southern-most culture inspired Crissi's latest album Little Sway (2014), a sultry and soulful blend of popular music, jazz, and R&B.

"The hooks come big and strong, and Cochrane glows on top of it all. Punchy drums and cool-as-a-breeze horns take us back to three-minute pop glory. Motown is definitely in the air. At the core is delightful songwriting, with an appreciation of melodic love songs and sophisticated lyrics."
- Bob Mersereau, CBC East Coast Music

"Cochrane's most recent album showcases a confident bridge towards sultry soul and classic, smoky jazz, the influence of Motown being just a riverbank away from Windsor. For fans of Ella Fitzgerald, Coeur de Pirate or Sarah Harmer."
- Grant Lawrence, CBC Radio 3

"She could sing me the phone book and I'd listen."
- Mike Kinsella (Owen, American Football)
