Julia was raised on Peter, Paul, & Mary and the Carter Family. She found her way to AC/DC, Miles Davis, Alan Toussaint, David Bowie, Joni Mitchell, & the Stax Record catalog. Wherever Julia went, music was always the focus. There’ve been punk bands in San Francisco, a stint at an Okinawan hotel resort doing 70s pop tunes, time in DC playing bass for big band Swing Shift, and years co-leading the award-winning DC alt-country band One Horse Town. When she writes or performs a song, it’s clear that wide and deep musical influences are alive in her music.
