Julia Free's music seems carefree and sunny, but it has hidden depths. (email@example.com)
Recommended first album:
Julia Free—vocals, keyboards
Julia Free's debut is a poppy record with some strong songs like the catchy "Girl I know". She's not doing anything very new, but she's doing something very appealing. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Julia Free—vocals, Steinway grand piano, Kurzweil, backing vocals
Tim Jessup—acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass, mandolin, digital keyboards, percussion, string arrangements, backing vocals
Tim Jessup with Julia Free
Julia Free's second album seems more assured than her debut, though she's revisiting some of the songs from her debut. The arrangements are fuller without drowning the songs. "Turn the soil" is a song that benefits from its new suit, being a strong observation on today's world. "Shattered" is one of the new songs, and it's subtle and moving. She has a beautiful voice and it's at its best here. "No Special love" is another new song and it's slow and sweet, Free's vocals teasing out the beat of the melody. This really is a fine album.
