Announcing - Julia Carroll!!
- Having played for several years in hard rock and heavy metal bands,
it is easy to hear the influence those experiences had on Julia's
style of acoustic guitar playing. Blending these heavy roots with a
lighter, folk side makes her sound anything but typical, resulting
in a type of music she has dubbed "Hard Folk." Lyrically, Julia
stands on solid ground - her use of the pen as an outlet for her
thoughts surfaced before she was a teenager, steadily growing into
the passionate songs we hear today.
While her original compositions dominate the majority of Julia's
live shows, she does perform numerous cover songs as well. Choosing
works by artists who have influenced her, the diversified list
includes Elton John, Loretta Lynn, Ani DiFranco, Tracy Chapman, and
even a poem by Dr. Maya Angelou. Many of Julia's musical influences
include independent artists, each of which have helped to pave the
way for up-and-comers like herself, and who value "music with a
message" rather than an overwhelming emphasis on record sales.
