ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I feel uncomfortable talking about myself from the third person because I think that one person talking about me is plenty. Growing up in Catonsville, MD with a younger sister and educators for parents, I happily took piano lessons for 8 years, developing my love for music. After my family went through the death of my father, I stopped taking formal lessons, but started to develop ideas about spirituality that would eventually influence my own music. Traveling to Boulder, Colorado for my collegial years helped me to solidify a love for the mountains as well as a starting point for writing my first album,” Brains in Bubbles”. By the end of my 4 years, however, I got the itch to move back East with some very close friends, hence my last two years teaching in Bedford-Stuyvesant, a neighborhood in Brooklyn. This is where I spent the most challenging years of my life, thus far. It’s also where I recorded the album Moons & Stars Convene with Craig Levy as a kind of tribute to all of the amazing people and places I have encountered. I have been lucky enough to travel to Africa, where I climbed Kilimanjaro, and India, where I discovered the birth of Eastern philosophies. I have been luckiest, though, in always being surrounded by people who have supported me and loved me in every way. Now that I’ve finished with a tour in a grease-powered RV with my roommates in New York (www.thebreakfreeproject.org), I’ve landed in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, where I’ll be for the time being.

Fabio Pires

Easy to listen
I love your CD, Julia!! It's so easy to listen to, and I always find that it cheers me up a little bit.

Anna Bjugstad

Soulful, passionate, and groovy
Julia Massey has such a natural and sweet voice. Her tunes are catchy, but not cliche, and will have you grooving out to an incredible variety of sounds. Her singing is so passionate and the lyrics are so interesting that the music just melds with the listener's heart and soul.

Emily Holden

Perpetually in awe...
As one might infer from her modest-yet-amazing bio, Julia is the kind of person that walks by and turns every head in her path. Besides her readily apparent musical gifts, she is the nicest person you will ever meet - buy and enjoy her CD, because I can guarantee that she'd do the same for you any day of the week.

Adam of the Scots

Massey rocks out another veritable musical delight.
"Moons & Stars Convene" is the rapturous sequel to the inaugural "Brains in Bubbles" which showcased Julia's undefiled vocal talent. This same quality remains and is ripened with sophisticated instrumental accompaniments and vocal harmonies.

Buy this CD now ya scabby bastards!

Kate 'Mexico" Hawthorne

So lovely!
So many great memories of my first year in NYC with this as one of the soundtracks! I love these songs as much as when I first heard them! Keep it coming Julia Massey!!!

Doris Lee

Eclectic, Moving, Spiritual, Loving, and Touching
I am a R&B and Hip Hop fan but I really loved this CD. It has such a relaxing sound. I enjoyed every song.

Eliza Boote

Powerful and Poetic. Honesty at its best!
Julia's music reminds me about what it means to be a true musician, to speak from the heart, and to remain in the poesis of creation.

Michael Sheridan

Remembering Tanzania
Hi Julia! Great to hear from you again. I listen to "Brains in Bubbles" all the time and think about bushbabies. Write me and tell me that you're well. -- mike
