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 away from the birthplace of Motown.

Crissi’s pitch-perfect, elegant voice, is both spellbinding and inspiring.
— Isaac Gutierrez, Born Loser Blog
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
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
She could sing the phone book and I’d listen.
— Mike Kinsella (Owen, American Football)
Crissi Cochrane’s soft jazz tunes speak to the soul. With a light and soulful voice, strong instrumentals and meaningful lyrics, her songs are soothing and lovely.
— Stephanie Sokol, The Pit Sports & Entertainment
The [Annapolis] Valley girl sounds like [Jill] Barber’s younger sister, with a nostalgic, folksy voice that’s wise beyond her years.
— Hilary Beaumont, The Coast
Don’t let her sweet folk-pop fool you; singer-songwriter Crissi Cochrane is a workhorse.
— Josh Kolm, The Lance at UWindsor
Hers is the perfect show to attend with close friends or lovers before they leave at the end of summer.
— Hilary Beaumont, The Coast
She switched the countless bars and unheard voices of the Maritimes for the countless bars and unheard voices of Windsor, easily fitting in with her honest story telling and hard work. Shortly after her arrival, she co-founded an open mic/arts & crafts bazaar at The FM Lounge, and immediately won over an often fickle music scene with some fantastic pop folk songs that showed a story telling beyond her years.
— Jamie Greer, the Windsor Zene
With a voice like sunshine, Crissi’s lyrics soar over a playful backdrop of brass, piano and (naturally) guitars. Sweet and welcoming, this track is just another example of how Crissi Cochrane is earning her place among Canada’s great pop singer/songwriters.
— Steve Venegas, CBC Radio 3
