This episode is a bit different than past ones, for a couple reasons. First of all we recorded this using only Skype audio. Secondly, the artists that we talked with are not from Maine, but coming though on a tour they booked themselves, which gave us a great perspective in to topics that we’ve been discussing over the last several months.
Julia Barry, along with her bass player John Lenis will be headlining a performance at Blue, with touring compatriot, Nehemiah Luckett. We started off discussing the work that goes in to booking tours and advancing each of the shows. We also jumped down the rabbit hole of life/music/work balance. But we spent a great deal of time discussing Julia and John’s instrumentation, (voice, piano, bass) and the way compositions come together, both during the writing process and in a live performance.
This performance will be on May 5 at Blue on Congress St in Portland.
Julia will also be talking and playing live with Ross Gauvin on WMPG, May 5 from 3:30pm – 4:15pm.
