We have made no secret of the fact that we believe that Julia Weldon is destined for great things. We’ve recorded her twice previously this year, including the CD release party for her new album Light Is A Ghost, and each time we became more convinced of the inevitably of her musical upward mobility. Julia was an obvious choice for our NYCTaper CMJ Day Party at Cake Shop this year, and we were so pleased when she accepted our invite. And despite the afternoon set time, a good chunk of her fans managed to see this outstanding performer again impress with a set of her country-tinged indie folk. The week of this show, Julia’s new video for the song “Careful In The Dark” was premiered by the Village Voice, and her performance of that song at this show was particularly strong. We’re streaming it below. Julia Weldon has scheduled a series of upcoming shows, including this Friday at Wellesley College and Sunday night in a solo opening slot at the Knitting Factory.

I recorded this set in the same manner as the previous CMJ Cake Shop recordings and the sound quality is equally superb. Enjoy!
