FEATURES AN EXCLUSiVE iNTERViEW WITH RiCK WALKER AND MONiCA SORENSON OF SOMETiMES JULiE AND CUTS FROM THEiR NEW EP BRiGHT SiDE OF THE LiNE!!!
You never think that anything good can come of doing karaoke but in the case of MONICA SORENSON the great American past time ended up changing her life. While singing what was more than likely an ALANIS MORISSETTE tune according to the press release, MONICA's voice and soulful phrasing caught the ear of guitarist RICK WALKER - a man whose musical past goes back to the halcyon days of the Chicago scene of the early nineties which was filled to the brim with artists such as LIZ PHAIR, SMASHING PUMPKINS, MATERIAL ISSUE and URGE OVERKILL. At this point in the story WALKER was looking for words to put to his musical arrangements and it just turned out that the woman singing karaoke not only had a voice but dabbled in a little bit of verse as well. Before long the two began swapping ideas and eventually songs were born as was the act they curiously dubbed SOMETIMES JULIE. By 2014 they made their presence known with their award-wining debut HEAD FIRST and now they're back with a brand new EP BRIGHT SIDE OF THE LINE. To call a six song EP an emotional roller coaster sounds like a bunch hyperbole but in this case it ain't hyperbole. SOMETIMES JULIE's songsmithing marries stomping grooves and funky, bluesy flourishes with dark and edgy subject matter that is given extra heft thanks to SORENSON's buoyant vocals and emotional delivery.
