3:00 on a Greyhound bus in a thunderstorm - melancholy acoustic folk-pop to soothe your aching heart.

Julie's long-awaited full-length CD, produced by producer/multi-instrumentalist/wunderkind Justin Abedin. Featuring performances by some of Toronto's best known musicians and singers, Julie's latest CD is a beautiful collection of finely crafted songs about love, loss, life and possibility. A mini masterpiece.

"Though April is her first month on OurStage, it didn’t take long for this Montreal native to reach the top of the Acoustic and Americana charts. With smart lyrics, lush production value, and a radio friendly sound, it’s no wonder she’s won over the OurStage fans. “Cross Your Fingers” has held strong near the top of Americana/Alt Country with it’s mid-tempo, finger-plucking authenticity. But “Lately” is her strongest track and clearly the fan favorite, holding strong at #1 for more than a week. The down-tempo, nearly haunting intro (“I Keep on digging. I need more dynamite. None of my clothes fit right.”) is tempered by an uplifting chorus that makes you think things might change..."

This young Canadian singer/songwriter has many of the qualities of Alison Krauss and much more besides - she really is that good. The songs are all simply beautiful and are taken from her recently released indie CD. She aptly describes her music as "sounding like 3am on a Greyhound bus in a thunderstorm", and if you're searching for the real thing, look no further."

Great vocals and stirring music. Think Janis Ian meets Paula Cole. Emotional performance.
