“No one wakes up and says, ‘I want to segment my life into circles.’”

Jill Sobule belongs to a rare breed of artists. Her work is at once deeply personal and socially conscious, seriously funny and derisively tragic. Over five albums and a decade of recording, the Denver-born songwriter/guitarist/ singer has tackled such topics as the death penalty, anorexia, shoplifting, reproduction, the French resistance movement, adolescence and the Christian right. Did we mention love? Love found, love lost, love wished for and love taken away. She has recorded five albums, and achieved a national top-20 hit with "I Kissed A Girl." She has also performed on NPR and at the brilliant TED conferences produced by Richard Saul Wurman.
