Today we are extending a warm welcome to our newest singing, Julie Byrne.

Julie Byrne has counted Buffalo, Pittsburgh, Chicago, Seattle, New Orleans and Northampton as her transient homes in recent years. For now, she’s settled in New York City, moonlighting as a seasonal urban park ranger in Central Park.

Her last album was released in January 2014, on Chicago based DIY label Orinda. ‘Rooms With Walls and Windows’ was voted number 7 in Mojo Magazine’s Best Albums, with the Huffington Post calling it, “2014’s Great American Album.” A collection of hushed intimate front porch psych-folk songs, recalling the greats, but strongly emanating the essence of timeliness.

Byrne’s second album, ‘Not Even Happiness,’ has evolved at its own pace. It spans recollections of bustling roadside diners, the stars over the high desert, the aching weariness of change, the wildflowers of the California coast, and the irresolvable mysteries of love. ‘Not Even Happiness’ offers a bigger picture to its predecessor through a wider exploration of instruments and atmospherics, revealing an artist who has grown in confidence over time.

In the live arena she enchants, showcasing her extraordinary musicality. Many find a real connection with her intimate songs, and she mesmerizes rooms and festival crowds with her voice and warm presence.

Julie Byrne is taking ‘Not Even Happiness’ on the road throughout 2017. Keep an eye on her artist page for tour dates and news.
