Julie Lee

The life of Nashville-based singer/songwriter Julie Lee has always been a lesson in assemblage art. She grew up in Maryland on a steady diet of family stories, jazz and folk music, learning early the connection between history and the creative act. She began her career as a visual artist and taught English for two years in Budapest, Hungary, yet was always mesmerized by the raw ability of music to convey and preserve a story. After relocating to Nashville and experiencing the rich heritage of Southern blues, bluegrass and folk music, Julie began to experiment with songwriting, assembling melodies and stories like a patchwork quilt. As a songwriter, Julie Lee’s songs have recently been recorded by Alison Krauss.Her talents quickly earned raves from fellow artists, resulting in opening touring slots with Alison Krauss in New England as well as Vigilantes of Love’s Bill Mallonee and Pierce Pettis in the UK.

With her smooth, lilting voice, which gracefully slips across the borders of musical genre, Julie Lee’s new CD Stillhouse Road offers a timeless collection of songs. Featuring some of the most talented musicians in Nashville, including Alison Krauss, Vince Gill and slide guitar player Colin Linden (O’ Brother, Where Art Thou), Stillhouse Road is a quilt of bluegrass, jazz, blues, and folk. And much like the appeal of a quilt, Julie Lee is not afraid to let the seams show. Whether singing about her family or exploring the deepest implications of faith, each of Julie Lee’s raw, homespun songs carries with it a common thread of a time-tested hope and the possibilities that love can afford. Julie Lee’s new CD, Stillhouse Road is set to be released by Compadre Records on October 5, 2004.
