Jobi Riccio is a songwriter and performer from Denver, Colorado. Inspired by artists ranging from Buck Owens 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 being awarded the 2019 Lee Villiare Scholarship from her alma mater Berklee College of Music, winning the 2019 NewSong Music Competition and being named a finalist in the 2018 Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Songwriter's Showcase. She is currently working on her debut full length album, due out in 2021. Her 2019 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.
