ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Jobi Riccio is a songwriter and performer from Denver, Colorado, currently based in Boston, MA. Inspired by artists ranging from Patsy Cline to Joni Mitchell, and the bluegrass community she came of age in, she writes songs that meld classic country sounds with modern sensibilities, aiming to turn classic tropes of the genre on its head. She has received acclaim for her writing, including winning the 2019 NewSong Music Competition and being named a finalist in the 2018 Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Songwriters Showcase. Her Debut EP “Strawberry Wine” is an ode to the women of country music she grew up singing along to in her bedroom and is streaming everywhere now.
