Jill Hennessy at The Loft - 6/13
at The Loft at City Winery
Singer/songwriter, Jill Hennessy, is mostly known for her acting on Law & Order and her star
turn on Crossing Jordan. She should be more widely recognized for her music career .... that’s
where it all started..... Busking on the streets of Toronto as a 17 year old explorer. She wrote all
of the music and lyrics on her debut album, “Ghost In My Head” and she performed on the Lilith
Tour with Sarah McLachlan, The Indigo Girls and the Dixie Chicks and was featured on The
Indigo Girls’ live album “Staring Down The Brilliant Dream”.
Dave Marsh from Sirius XM Radio wrote “Ghost In My Head would be an impressive
achievement if it came from someone who’d made a lot of records. As a debut, it’s startling—

Jill also wrote all the music and lyrics on her second album, “I Do”, which was released in
October 2015. “I Do” is primarily a collection of stories about love, loss and relationships - the

record. I couldn’t be happier for her... and for me. What a relief to find this gem of an album ...
Stronger than the first one in a whole bunch of ways, really builds her a fortress to sing from, and
the insights in the songs are as deep and beautiful as always. Brava!"
Walter Price from Global Texan Chronicles wrote, “I Do is one of best albums of 2015. The
power in this album is the songwriter’s experiences laid out in depths and realism that many
artists work full careers or even lifetimes trying to achieve. This album forgoes arrogance
deciding instead to focus on not just the stellar construction of the songs and subsequently the
full album but to let honesty work its gritty magic. I Do is an important album for humans who
feel and are trying to work through what they are living. For a Canadian who resides in NY to
capture the atmosphere of steadfast Texas sounds with hints of classic rock and so many of the
great timeless singer/songwriters history have given us is more delicious icing on the cake for “I
