Boston’s Jill Goldberg to bring fun pop-rock songs to the Grape Room

She dreamed of being a film composer but after joining an a cappella group in college, Jill Goldberg decided to try her hand at writing lyrics to the piano cores she’d been creating. It wasn’t long before she was pursuing a career as a singer-songwriter.

Goldberg released her first EP, “Travel On,” in 2008. Now, she’s back with her second outing, the six-song EP, “Girl, Polite,” whose release she’s been celebrating with a string of East Coast dates that will take her to Philadelphia’s Grape Room on Friday.

Produced by Mark Turrigiano (Ingrid Michaelson, Lissy Trullie), the EP is a musical exploration of identity, transition and empowerment, drawing inspiration from personal experience and the world around her. While Sheryl Crow’s pop-rock sensibility, Sara Barielles’ vocal prowess, Basia Bulat’s poignant poetry and Sarah McLachlan’s graceful delivery are all influences, Goldberg refers to her music as fun and catchy with a rock twist.
