      Julie and the band were awesome. Technical difficulty, though minor, kept it from being a 5 star. Looking forward to the next live webcast from The Sound Shelter.

The newest album is 2007's folk-rock "Where the Fireworks Are". The other recent one is "Something Familiar", a collection of standards and blues. Stone Cupid's earlier two acclaimed independent albums are a soulful hybrid of roots and folk.
Julie was a featured member of the Cohen song projects produced by Hal Willner. The "Came So Far for Beauty" concerts (on which the documentary film "I'm Your Man" was partly based) had four installments over 4 years. In Dublin, Julie performed a fiery Joan of Arc with Lou Reed.

There are plenty of great singer-songwriters in East Nashville, but very few with a résumé that rivals Julie Christensen’s. Christensen, who moved to town from Los Angeles a year ago, was a member of renowned ’80s L.A. punk band The Divine Horsemen (with then-husband Chris Desjardins), followed by a lengthy stint in Leonard Cohen’s band. ...She’s worked with Iggy Pop, Public Image Ltd, Todd Rundgren, k.d. lang and more. Suffice to say, she’s got cred. Her 2012 album Weeds Like Us is an intoxicating blend of gritty roots rock and old-school soul. Highlights include the lead track “Restless,” a steamy dose of bubbling country funk; the moody ballad “Outside”; and the swampy, yearning “Call Me Up.” Christensen may be new to town, but she wasted no time finding a stellar backing band, including guitarists Sergio Webb and Chris Tench, bassist Bones Hillman and drummer Steve Latanation. Reckless Johnny Wales opens.
