"Before You Go"
Before You Go is the title track off the upcoming Full Length EP, Conjectures which will be released in 2019.
A Personal Note From Julia:
“I began writing for the new EP, Conjectures as a means to chronicle snapshots of grief. Working in hospice, I was inspired by the concept of “holding space”, simply put being present, being there emotionally, mentally and physically. Saying goodbye is never easy, though often we ask for just a few more moments, to “stay a little longer” before the final farewell. I attempted to capture that feeling and concept on this recording. Inspired by artists such as Brandi Carlile, Julien Baker, and Gregory Alan Isakov, Before You Go packs a punch musically and emotionally with powerful vocals and rich instrumentation.”

Julia’s self-produced debut EP, “Conjectures”, recorded at Northeast’s own Sovereignty Recording, mixes her love of old with an equivalent affection for her peers (Brandi Carlile, Gregory Alan Isakov, and Julien Baker), resulting in a timeless musical soundscape embedded with lived-in perspectives on topics relevant to people in every period and place.
