Julie Kathryn grew up in Lake Placid, New York, studied classical piano, and took up the guitar at 17. She discovered her
innate abilities as a singer during a songwriting course where the teacher quipped "you could sing the phonebook." Prior to pursuing music, Julie Kathryn had a promising social work career enriched by an impressive academic profile. "I always had two things, playing music and
helping people through social advocacy, but I wasn't sure what path to take. I did advocacy work for homeless people, drug addicts, and criminal defendants who didn't have any money," says the singer-songwriter. "After interviewing clients in the Tombs [New York jail] during the day, I would go out at night and play gigs."
In just 2 years of dedicating herself to music fulltime, singer-songwriter Julie Kathryn has made an indelible impression on the music community with her sensual Americana noir. In 2011, she graced Music Connection Magazine's esteemed annual "Hot 100 Live Unsigned Artists & Bands" list. Julie Kathryn has appeared at distinguished NYC listening rooms such as Rockwood and the Living Room. Live, her sultry stage persona reflects the slowburn beauty of her music. The recently released Broken Love EP is an elegiacally elegant 4-song collection that traverses all intersections of American music: folk, jazz, blues, and soul with a dreamy sprawl that's both earthy and otherworldly.
