JULIE'S MUSIC: FOR SALE AT CD BABY
Julie Says:


"When I was 14 years old, I paid $12 for a classical style nylon string guitar at a yard sale. I sat up in my room for hours working out how to play simple chords and to sing rock and folk songs. Within 6 months I had traded in for a steel 12 string and wrote my first song.
 
Music, my music, my first language, my gift given me through generations and common human experience, is a gift I am compelled to share. It is not enough to write, sing, play for myself. Somehow it is in the communication that makes complete this drive and purpose. I simply offer my truth as I can honestly speak it.
 
In the early hours I sit, listen, wonder, see, clear my mind of  chatter, listen, listen, feel, listen. The stories I tell come from  the wind, from the heart, the river, the fire burning, the Earth in undulating dance with my feet, from relationship. This part is for me,  discovery, creative, soul searching, my process.

I am often asked, ‘What kind of music do you do?’ I’m not sure how to answer that. Categories analyze what already is. When I write, sing, it comes through my experience, thoughts, feelings. I am not thinking of a genre or style. So I describe or try to associate my misfit with the next closest thing; singer songwriter, classic /indy rock/jazz/ Americana/poetry influenced folk."
