“70's vibed Indie Art Rock: Earworm Melodies over ornate arrangements”
Julie Lamb is all class, more sass and hysterical "funnerisms" wrapped in one feisty package. Hailing from Wellington NZ, by day she is the Principal of Julie Lamb and Associates but by night she is the lead singer/songwriter for The Julie Lamb band. Having dabbled in various musical styles and bands for "mumble" years (acts include Joplin covers band "Channeling Janis" and "10dd", an accapella 12 piece troupe that sings 10cc numbers), performing has always been her outlet for expression, a way to connect with others on the same wavelength. But it is the original material that brings this driven diva to life.
"Every song carries a unique edge that sets it apart from the standard rock fodder lurking on every corner" Martyn Pepperell, Fishhead magazine.
Julie painstakingly crafts each arrangement and surrounds herself with musicians who have the expertise to color the final form, the core of whom tend to be Andrew Richardson (drums), Callum Hazlitt-Black (bass) and Dave Hadley (guitar). The success of sophomore album Tripping The Light Fantastic is her best yet, garnering international airplay in Canada, USA, UK and Europe and having songs selected for global compilations: Jack and Jill No. 20 and Acid Tapes in Australia, 1st Renaissance in the UK and Indie Music Bus Favourites in the USA. The album also led to Julie being named TalentCast Artist of the week in the Netherlands (twice), featured artist on both Rocker's Dive Radio NY and Reverbnation and silver medals from the Beat100 A&R team for her "Waterproof" music video. Not one to rest on her laurels, Julie and the lads are fresh from the studio so keep an eye out for the follow-up album.
