“To be honest, I had no clue who Jill Colucci was or what she sounded like, but in the first fifteen minutes of listening to her voice at her concert, letting the words of her songs weave in and out of my consciousness, I couldn’t help but become an instant fan. In today’s world of extreme everything, including desensitization of emotions, it was a calming and peaceful respite for me to just let her music touch my heart.”

Music & Message
Jill speaks from experience on grief, loss, healing and hope. She weaves her story of loss and healing in such a meaningful way and then brings in powerful music to accent her story. Truth be told, her music is much more than an accent, it is the very centerpiece of her healing and of her story. Her songs poured through her as she began her healing journey. They were very cathartic and helped her heal. She was then moved to make a CD of the songs with the hope of helping others through their losses. The time will fly by as Jill speaks and performs, leaving you in the perfect space to create the life you desire from a place of trusting the journey you are on.
Allow Jill to set the tone of your event with a powerful combination of touching and heart opening stories with her songs and jingles that have influenced the nation for over 50 years. Although Jill’s life was blessed with great success, she experienced what she refers to as "The Lost Decade” where she gave herself over to the caregiver process when she lost her parents, her sister Joni and ultimately almost lost her own life. During this time, her music changed, her heart was opened more fully, and her songs became the vehicle for her healing. This Keynote Presentation is an expression of her triumph over loss and the manifestation of her new path in life. Jill will take your event participants on a journey of hope and healing that will change their lives in a significant way.
“From Pineapple to Platinum”… Confessions of a Hit Songwriter
If you watch TV, go to the movies, or listen to the radio, you already know Jill Colucci. After moving to Los Angeles from a small town in Ohio, Jill’s first gig was singing for a major airline in a duo called “The Pineapple Splits”. Jill, however, soon took flight on her own signing an exclusive deal with a major publishing company, writing hit songs for internationally known recording artists, and receiving multiple platinum awards for her songs. Jill shares her vast experience and her writing process that led to her penning several number one Billboard charting hits, 20 million records sold and much more. Jill also will play her hit songs and jingle medley as part of her lecture. Her inspiring story is meant to encourage all who hear her to go after their dreams and live life to the fullest.
“Jill Colucci was the first award-winning music star to speak at Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Ringling College in Sarasota. Jill took the audience on a personal journey of what it’s like to be a songwriter in her lecture ‘From Pineapple to Platinum: Confessions of a Hit Songwriter’. The journey included stories that were tender, funny and inspiring. We were honored to have Jill share her life stories and her music with such honesty and eloquence.”
- Sheila Reed (Project Coordinator at Osher Lifelong learning Institute)

COMMENTS FROM HER STUDENTS:
I would rate our first experience as awesome. I know I'm still a little star struck but I think that I'd have to give this first one a 10. I think the most beneficial part of our time together would be your attentiveness to details. I know that one line can change a song but it has to be the right line or word that gets changed and it's obvious that you're in tune to what a song needs. I know I am too, but you've been doing it longer and at a higher level and so I trust your opinion. Everything we did was everything that I hoped to accomplish, and our time together exceeded my expectations and got me excited already for my next trip down. It was just so nice to talk songwriting with someone that I respect and admire and who sees the potential in what I do. In a word, awesome.

Working with Jill was some of the most productive and well spent time thus far in my career. I went into the session not really sure what to expect (other than being told by a friend that it was an opportunity I shouldn't pass up), and walked out with a new confidence and assurance about the quality of my writing. Where I was blocked, she helped me find ways to move past it; where I knew something was missing but wasn't sure what it could be, she helped me figure it out. Since the session, I have been able to pick up and work on some of the songs I'd put aside, all while trying to follow her advice regarding my tendency to over-edit myself. I would highly recommend that anyone who may need a little (or a lot) of guidance try to find a way to work with Jill. You will be thrilled that you did!

When I worked with Jill for the first time, she and I had never met before and came into the meeting in sort of a "blind date" way. I was so surprised (and grateful) at how calm and comfortable I felt immediately with her - she is such a warm and encouraging presence. The first part of our session she spent asking me questions about my career thus far and my goals as a writer and artist, really getting to know who I was in order to best steer our sessions. This was extremely important to me as in this business there are thousands of us struggling to be really seen and really heard, and it was obvious that it was important to Jill to really get to know her clients. I found her tips on songwriting and critiques of lyrics to be smart, insightful and helpful, challenging me when necessary as well as expressing enthusiasm over work I had done. Working with Jill has been so helpful and an extremely validating experience.
