Meet Julie Lavender, a soaring vocalist, exceptional songwriter and talented musician. An artist with a rich emotional palette whose diverse style has been compared with everyone from Sting to Joni Mitchell, she has carved out her own unique musical expression - a fresh synthesis of contemporary jazz, modern pop and folk music. On her first CD, GOOD WOMAN, Julie captures a broad spectrum of emotion and takes the listener through a transformation that is often poignant, yet playful and intuitive. She is accompanied on this recording by a group of world-class musicians including her producer/arranger Kamau Kenyatta (who has worked with artists such as Hubert and Eloise Laws, Patti Austin and Earl Klugh)and nationally recognized keyboardist Greg Phillinganes (accompanist to Barbara Streisand and Anita Baker). This CD is a suprising and interesting first national release.
