With her past few releases, Nashville singer/songwriter Julie Lee has explored old-timey folk and various other pathways in and out of roots music. But with her new Till and Mule, she has truly hit her stride. While this set draws from the wisdom gleaned from those previous explorations, it stands as its own work, through and through. It’s just great songwriting rendered in a flawless fashion… pure and simple.
And that’s Julie Lee — pure and simple.
Lee’s ethereal voice brings a shimmer, a lightness to everything it touches, and these tunes are all the better for it. They are also made timeless by it, for Lee is an artist that of no particular genre or era. But with Till and Mule, she’s built her own artistic home.
Step inside, and stay a while.
