With her deep, blues-soaked voice that poignantly captures the pain of the wronged and forgotten, Julie Roberts has quickly become a favorite of the fans and music critics alike.
Julie brings her talent to Annapolis on Saturday at the Rams Head On Stage!
Entertainment Weekly awarded her self-titled debut CD an A, calling it one of the most auspicious debuts in years. The New York Times said Roberts aching and resolute hit “Break Down Here” was one of the year’s best country ballads. Spotting her talent early, CMT selected Roberts to be the first artist ever to appear in “In the Moment,” the music networks hour-long documentary on the making of a star. The album was certified gold and led to two Horizon Award nominations from the Country Music Association, Top New Artist and Top New Female Vocalist nominations from the Academy of Country Music, as well as a Breakthrough Artist nomination from the CMT Awards. She delivered two memorable performances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, was chosen over artists in all musical genres to sing the Good To Go theme song of the television show Good Morning America and joined pop superstar Rihanna in a Clinique HAPPY campaign.
Roberts followed this with the equally critically acclaimed sophomore release ‘Men & Mascara’, joining with veteran producer Byron Gallimore (Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Lee Ann Womack.) Showing her maturity as an artist, vocalist and writer, Roberts co-wrote four tracks on the CD. Acclaimed music critic Bob Oermann called the title track and first single “captivating in the extreme.”
The Washington Post defined her third release, ‘Alive’, “an album in which she traffics in familiar heartbreak but delivers her lyrics with a little more fire in her lungs. The music is striking.”
