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.

This heartfelt waltz commemorates this couple’s 25th wedding anniversary. Darrin’s wife requested something they could dance to, which fit their story so well - the first time they met was at a bar where they danced all night, “like we were the only two on the dance floor.” She said, “I felt that I belonged in his arms and never wanted to leave. I think we fell in love right then and there.”

This sunny tune tells the story of a couple who first met on the job at a fast food joint. Lisa’s partner told me he knew he wanted her from the moment he saw her. Now ten happy years have gone by, filled with adventures and travel - “we seem to get lost every time,” he admitted. He describes Lisa as completely fearless, and  a ray of sunshine. “Lisa is my life, my love, my universe […] I believe that something has brought us together that is beyond our control. I can feel that we are meant to be together.” 

This gentle lullaby was requested by proud grandparents on their baby granddaughter’s first birthday. Because of the distance between them, they first met when Payton was ten days old - “we took her into our arms and immediately fell in love.” With the many miles between them, they don’t get to spend a lot of time together, “but the times we do are precious for us, and I hope that she will feel the same.” nailed it. The song was perfect. I got the attention of everyone gave a small intro and watched the tears flow as you sang. Good tears though! The song left my son speechless.  He just looked at me and shook his head.... “How can an old hard ass like me come up with such a sweet idea like that” were his thoughts. I’m a softie, really! Thanks again.

Crissi, I LOVE IT!  It is so perfect!  Thank you so much.  You are so talented and thank you for sharing your talents in this way – you’ve allowed me to give a wonderful gift that I would never have been able to otherwise.  I can’t wait until she hears it for the first time.
— Tim M. (song for a spouse)

Crissi at TedX: love songs for hire

Crissi Cochrane speaks at TedXChatham in 2017, playing two of her custom songs and explaining the origins of this practice and what she’s learned along the way.

I just wanted to email and say thank you so much for the lovely song. I can’t express how much it moved me that [my husband] reached out to you to do something so creative and thoughtful and that you hit the nail right on the head with the lyrics. He didn’t tell me what it was but just started playing it and I thought “oh that’s just my kind of music, I love the guitar picking” then I thought “oh hey, that lyric is kind of like us” and then “oh that one is like us too” then “wait a minute this is ABOUT US!!!” . Then I cried, of course.  Thank you once again for the most memorable, unique, heartfelt gift ever. I will treasure it always.
— Susan F. (recipient of song)
