Ever since she first caught mainstream attention with her 1995 song “I Kissed a Girl”— the first song about same-sex romance ever to crack the Billboard Top20 (and no relation to the later Katy Perry tune) — Jill Sobule has always pushed forward, exploring new sounds and subject matter with each passing album.
Her recent albums, 2009’s California Years and this year’s Nostalgia Kills, were both crowdfunded and self-released in a way that Kickstarter themselves came to her for advice. For the success of these projects, Sobule relies on her fan base, which she describes as “small yet mighty”. – Listen to her interview on NPR.
Jill Sobule will be bringing her boundary-breaking sound to Hopewell Theater on Saturday, December 22nd. WXPN welcomes this special show. Get your tickets here!
