You know how movie music can sweep you away? Find those deep down emotions? Take you places, both high and low, that words cannot?
That's Heartpsalm. It's a soundtrack for the Christian life with its victories, challenges and its passion.
Julie's style is percussive, complex, lyrical, explosive and emotionally compelling. Listeners have said that it sweeps them into the throne room of God (not making this up!).
Cut 10 is the soundtrack to Multnomah Publishing's video of Bruce Wilkerson's #1 best seller: "The Prayer of Jabez." If you've not read the book, read it now. And buy Julie's sweeping musical backbone of the video right here.
Lush. Hushed. Loud. Rhythmic. Latin, Swahili. Soothing. Explosive. Somber. Joyous. Loss and victory. It's all here, presented with the skill of an accomplished, acclaimed, award-winning orchestral composer. Big stuff!
Wait 'til you hear the end of the Battle Hymn. Seat belt or parachute recommended. If you need a piece to demonstrate your great stereo system to friends, this is it! Will blow down everyone in the room.
If you prefer instant electronic delivery, all of Julie's CDs are available at Apple's iTunes Music Store.
About the Artist
Julie Larson is a composer and orchestrator. She studied piano at the University of Texas at Austin and received her degree in music composition from the Thorton School of Music, University of Southern California at Los Angeles.
She was composer-in-residence for the Brazos Valley Symphony Orchestra for six years and has received grants from the Texas Commission on the Arts, the Texas Composers' Forum, and the National Endowment for the Arts.

At present, Julie is writing music based on the melodies of traditional hymns. Her new music is cinematic in style -- movie music -- and the unsung words to the hymns are the dramatic inspiration.
"My goals are simple. This music is written about the glory of God, and my desire is to glorify God with it."
