Jill Zimmerman is a singer-songwriter based in Northeast Minneapolis. Since she set them loose to the Creative Commons, her songs have been streamed over 4 million times and have been featured in a bizarre variety of student films, Korean YouTube comedies, European retailers’ in-store playlists, and for some reason a shaky cell phone video of a giraffe giving birth. “It is all a gift.” Check her out at jillzimmermanmusic.com
