Julie Thames' self-titled new release produced by veteran artist/producer Diane Durrett on the Blooming Tunes Music label is now available! Her first single, September Rain from the self-titled CD has maintained its position for 6 months and counting on Atlanta’s 94.9 The Bull Backyard Country.
The musicians performing on Thames' CD include Grammy award winning drummer Yonrico Scott (Derek Trucks) keyboardist Randall Bramblett (Bonnie Raitt), bassist Ted Pecchio (Susan Tedeschi) keyboardist Eric Frampton (Paul Simon) and guitarist Markham White. Also, featured on the duet Endlessly is Nashville’s Corbette Jackson.
Her first CD, Say Yes, was released in 2010. Say Yes blends optimistic yet feisty lyrics that inspired critics at the Newnan Herald to write, "The combination leaves listeners yearning for more.” Thames' new CD continues the spirit with a blend of thoughtful lyrics, beautiful melodies and strong vocals. She's having fun blazing her own musical path.
"This girl has such a sweet voice, I think she was born to be a musician.
"Julie is not only a 'natural' at songwriting she works hard on developing her craft."
"Strong songs; Sounds Good!"
"Thames' balances both sides of her personality in 'Say Yes,' including the optimistic 'Crazy Rhythm,'
