We receive hundreds of sample tracks every month, and I try to listen to all of them. Every once in a while there is an artist whose talent jumps out at me immediately. This was the case with Julia Weldon, whose recorded music is so impressive that we took a mid-week trip all the way out to Rock Shop just to be able to catch her live. There’s a great moment on this recording where a guy who wandered into the back room of Rock Shop mid-set spontaneously can be heard to say “she’s great” near the end of “Marian” streaming below. Julia is that kind of performer — whose talent is so obvious that a perfect stranger, likely in the venue to see another act, is compelled blurt out a superlative to no one in particular. Her set included some older numbers, but concentrated on her soon to be released new album, Light Is A Ghost. We are confident that with the new material and a consistent performing schedule, Julia will soon be playing in larger venues to much larger crowds, and eventually touring behind a prominent indie-label release. Such things are pretty easy to predict.

Julia Weldon will be playing at Knitting Factory on July 19, in a release show for a her new CD.

We recorded this set with the large diaphragm Neumann TLM-102 cards, which seemed to work well in this small room. Other than some non-optimal aspects of the mix, we’re pleased with the result. Enjoy!
