A friend said she is a bit like Tracy Bonham, I hear a little Patty Griffin. But she's also just very "Julia." (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I have her album and it's really incredible, I definitely recommend checking it out. (Songbird22@aol.com)
Comments about live performance:
Just saw Julia Darling last night. Julia was not bad, she was a confident performer with a strong voice and some good songs, and she definitely made some fans at her first show in Canada. As for me I found that there were a few songs I liked quite well but then quite a lot that I found quite boring as well...I liked enough of her songs that I'll definitely keep tabs on her progress but I wasn't floored by her and I'm not running out to my nearest CD store to buy her CD, which was just released yesterday up here in the Great White North.

Julia Darling—vocals, acoustic guitar, piano, percussion, electric guitar, nylon string guitar, 12 string guitar
Patrick Warren—chamberlin, harmonium, piano, harp, harpsichord, piano accordion
These songs analyze faith, love, and life, and are quite powerful—her voice is clear and beautiful. She is definitely worth checking out. (Songbird22@aol.com)
