Sonoma County, CA. ~ Sing- er-songwriter Jill Cohn’s, lat- est release entitled, Balanced on the Rail, takes the listener on a musical journey. The 12 tracks consist of story-telling songs, all originals except for “Fort Worth Blues,” which is a cover of a Steve Earle song. Cohn paints pictures with her lyrics as she accompanies herself on guitar. Recorded at Earwig Studio and DBAR Productions in Seattle Wash- ington, the professional qual- ity is evident from start to fin- ish on this album; especially with Producer Malcom Burn at the helm. Originally from a small

town in Washington State, this delightful touring artist cur- rently resides in Colorado and has been a fulltime musician since 1999. Be sure to catch Jill Cohn in concert as a solo artist or along with her band to experience the live versions of these songs and others from her extensive repertoire. Visit the artist’s website at www. to learn more about this musician. Balanced on the Rail, is Cohn’s 12th al- bum and can be heard online at CD Baby. Appreciate the Balanced on the Rail album on a deeper

level from many consecu-

tive listening’s to hear all the instrumental and vocal nu- ances. Cohn’s style has been compared to that of Emmylou Harris. Her current album pri- marily focuses on sentimental ballads with melodious sooth- ing vocals; however, the up- tempo danceable song, “Far Away,” has an Americana country-rock feel.

The song, “Possibilities,”

appears twice on the album, first as track 3 with the full band, and then

again as a

solo, “Let it unfold, the secret of the Soul,” sings Cohn in her sweet-sounding


tive voice. “Take Me Up,” a slow romantic tune good for hand-holding with that spe- cial someone while the gentle lyrics, “Here is you, here is me, here is light, here is love” wash over the listener. Jill Cohn, a talented lyrical storyteller and traveling trou- badour, uses visual imagery to take the listener to both new and familiar places. The title track, “Balanced on the Rail” can be interpreted as a song about courage. The song also serves as a reprise as bo- nus track on the album with charming solo rendition as the finale.

“Be wiser than other people if you can; but do not tell them so.” ~ Dale Carnegie
