Walk the Worn Out Floor

by Julie Wolf

Straight-to-the-heart vocals communicate the essence of each song with no extraneous jive or histrionics. Accompanying herself on piano with a select circle of friends assisting here and there, the mood is intimate, late night, last set.

Perfect
Perfect is the best way to describe this CD. I have never heard such wonderful music.

Megan

Supurb vocals
This cd showcases Julie's beautiful vocal ranges in addition to the blues sound that the piano accompanies so well, not to mention the beautiful lyrics. this cd is a must for any music lovers collection.

Lynn Galiste

Sublime
What a wonderfully crafted cd. She is as charismatic and expressive on record as she is in live performance. She possesses a very unique and mesmerizing voice. Her cd is in constant rotation in my car. Dreamy.

Bill Elliott

Refreshing
I saw Julie on the Bruce Cockburn tour and was impressed by her virtuosity. I expected a competent CD but received much more than mere stellar musicianship etc. The music is simply produced but oh so present and complete. Julie's song choices and her brilliant interpretations make for a very complete and beautiful listening experience. A must have.

Tara

Julie is more amazing than i thought she was when i first heard her singing with
Julie obviously has a mind blowing range of styles that she is capable of mastering. Honestly, I would like to hear more of her solo stuff. Julie is a beautiful babe on the inside and it shows on the out.

ashley

beautiful all around
this cd is a worthwhile buy. i have it playing at the coffee shop i work at, when i'm home studying, or just hanging around the house. she has a different but beautiful jazzy voice and the instrumental are brilliant. great artist.

Paul

The music washes over me and is pure and graceful.
I first heard Julie backing up my personal favorite (and fellow Canadian) musician icon and Julie's pure graceful voice shone right through and melded with everyone on stage and made each song sparkle. On this CD, her graceful voice, playing and beautiful demeanor shines right through the speakers to my ears. Get this CD and listen carefully to Julie's work and after you've heard it a hundred times, contact her and demand more solo work from this lovely artist.

Hugh H Lovell

A subtle, quiet, collection of songs
This is a collection of songs that needs a quiet mood to be appreciated. Given that, then the qualities of Julie's performance comes through. As a fan of Elvis Costello, I especially like her cover of "Baby Plays Around," a line from which gives the CD its title. If you want to see another side of this musician's talents (and wonderful person as well) check out an Ani DiFranco concert: Julie plays in her band.

Jonathan Swanson

Classy Music
This is very beautiful music that touches the soul. The music is relaxed and easy to listen to. Julie's singing is full of emotion and she has a style all her own. Her piano playing melodic and refined. I give this album 5 stars.

Pepper Mcgowan/inky Midnight Recods

Pleasing!
It's very cool to find a female pianist/singer who deviates from the more lilithy wispy voice/angsty thing. This is a really welcome addition to my CD collection. It's mature without being inaccessible or dry, and very heartfelt at the same time.
