Jill Kossoris was the lead singer,songwriter and keyboardist for the highly regarded and now legendary band 'The Shivvers'. Twenty years after their demise, 'The Shivvers' are enjoying a huge resurgence in popularity around the world, receiving worldwide praise in the press, and gaining more radio airplay than ever. Jill Kossoris' current CD 'Invisible' combines the melodic pop sensibility and energy of 'The Shivvers' with raw roots rock and alternative country. The result is unique, eccentric, rockin' and at times even spooky....but always timeless. If you like Neko Case, Nick Lowe, The Mavericks, or Chris Isaak, you will LOVE this CD. Invisible Reviews: 'Singer/Songwriter Jill Kossoris has a range that is almost limitless. You could lump her into the ultrahip alternative country category, but she's just as much J.J. Cale as Lucinda Williams. Though she mines many strains from honky-tonk and country blues, to Townes Van Zandt, Neil Diamond and Petula Clark-she is no copycat. It's simply that she lives and breathes the great American songwriting tradition. On the evidence of 'Invisible'-Jill Kossoris has what it takes to be a big hit'. -Jon Sobel- The Global Muse 'Anyone with a yen for smokey, ultra cool blue-eyed soul, she's just the ticket. Recorded in Nashville, although it sounds just like Memphis.' -Robert Oermann- Music Row Magazine Recent Shivvers Reviews: 'Teenline is an out and out classic. A Merseybeat rocker that's as sassy and catchy as hell. If you haven't heard it, you should be ashamed' - Bucket Full Of Brains UK 2005 'Teenline, is one of the most magnificent pop singles of it's time' -J.Edward Keyes- Philadelphia Weekly 2004 'The Shivvers played classic power pop for all it was worth and should have been huge. What is so impressive is the high quality of each and every one of their songs, and Kossoris gets each one across with sassiness and verve. Top-drawer.' -John M. Borack- Amplifier Magazine 2006 'The best power pop band you never heard in your life. If these songs had been released at the time, The Shivvers album would almost definitely have been one of the classics of the genre along with Dwight Twilley's Sincerely.' -Rob Hatch-Miller Dusted Magazine.com 'Paramount early-eighties powerpop act The Shivvers, capture the archetypal pop sound in their recently exhumed collection of songs. Frontwoman, Jill Kossoris' magnetic and acrid voice is the model intonation for the genre, and her raspy and sweet-hearted delivery underscores the raw naivety and unfaded appeal of their songs. This is an essential piece of powerpop history.' Brett Cross - Victim Of Time.com.
