Gretta Cohn is a cellist who is best known for playing cello in the rock group Cursive from 2001-2005. She left the group in August 2005. Her departure was announced on the Cursive website in late August:

Cursive regrets to announce the departure of cellist Gretta Cohn. After four years in the band, Gretta has decided to leave Omaha to pursue other interests and projects, including a potential solo album. The split is very amicable: the band wishes her well and she in turn eagerly anticipates the new Cursive material to come. Cursive will not be seeking a replacement.[1]

She has collaborated with other artists including the band Twin Thousands. She appeared on 2006's Halloween episode of Late Night with Conan O'Brien, performing with Cat Power.

She currently resides in New York City where she is the founder and principal of Transmitter Media. [2] She was previously Executive Producer of Show Development for the podcast company Midroll Media, [3] and a producer for the podcast Freakonomics Radio [4] [5] as well as the public radio show Soundcheck.[6]
