JILL SOBULE

(Music, Lyrics, Concept, Starring as herself)

In 12 albums and nearly three decades of recording, Jill Sobule has mused on topics such as the death penalty, anorexia, shoplifting, reproduction, the French resistance movement, adolescence, and the Christian right. Early hit songs included “I Kissed a Girl”—the first song about a lesbian romance ever to crack the Billboard Top 20.  and 90s alt-rock anthem “Supermodel,” which was featured in an iconic scene in the film Clueless. Jill has shared stages with the likes of Billy Bragg, Cyndi Lauper, X, Warren Zevon, Jackson Browne  Paul McCartney and Neil Young. Her latest record, ”Nostalgia Kills” was on many critics best list
Over the years, Jill has been active in numerous social and political causes, performing at prisons as part of Wayne Kramer’s Jail Guitar Doors project, playing dates with Lady Parts Justice’s “Vagical Mystery Tour,” and curating Monster Protest Jamz Volume 1, featuring protest songs by Tom Morello, Billy Bragg, Amanda Palmer, Jackson Browne, and many other great artists—as well as Jill’s own pre-2016 election song, “When They Say We Want Our America Back, What the F#@k Do They Mean?,” which traces the history of anti-immigrant sentiment in America.
In November 2020, She was featured, singing as herself, in an episode of the Simpson’s. She felt she finally made it!
