Of course we all know Jill Hennessy from her iconic ‘Law & Order’ character “Assistant D.A. Claire Kincaid” and as “Jordan Cavanaugh” from ‘Crossing Jordan.’ Jill is also an amazing singer-songwriter and it’s always a pleasure to have her come up and play for you (and us!)
Jim recently found himself in yet another ‘Law & Order’ binge on cable featuring a marathon of classic “Kincaid” episodes. It dawned on him to give Jill a call to let her know she was being featured...unfortunately the very next episode up was a particularly rough one for Jill’s beloved character.
Jill is playing The Loft at City Winery tomorrow (Wed 6/13). Everyone in the studio universally agreed that you should order a specific item on their menu while enjoying Jill and her full band.
Jill’s most recent TV roles include the CBC comedy series ‘Crawford’ (there’s a character who can talk to raccoons, so I'm all in on that). She’s also part of the cast of ‘Yellowstone,’ starring Kevin Costner, which is set to premiere next Wednesday (6/20) on the Paramount Network. Finally, Jill is set to star opposite Kevin Bacon in Showtime’s upcoming drama ‘City on a Hill,’ which is being produced by Ben Affleck and Matt Damon. Look for it in 2019.
Back to the music-
Jill has released two fantastic original albums, ‘Ghost in My Head’ (2009) & ‘I Do’ (2015). Both are available on Amazon, and iTunes. You can get physical copies and other cool merch via her website.
Today Jill was joined by one killer of a guitarist in Robbie Gjersoe, who is also featured on her albums. They performed two tracks off ‘Ghost in my Head’ on-air live: ‘4 Small Hands’ and ‘Slow Down.’ Check out the performances below:
