La folk de Julie Byrne a quelque chose d’immédiat et simple qui capte l’oreille instantanément. Si ça ne suffisait pas, sa présence sur scène, la délicatesse de la voix, sa concentration, regard posé sur le manche de sa guitare ou yeux carrément clos, sa gestuelle et sa sérénité ajoutent à l’envoûtement : ses concerts ne devraient jamais s’arrêter.


‘Not Even Happiness’ is out now via Basin Rock.
American wanderer Julie Byrne’s second album ‘Not Even Happiness’ (released in Jan 17) vividly archives what would have otherwise been lost to the road – bustling roadside diners, the stars over the high desert, the aching weariness of change, the wildflowers of the California coast, as well as the irresolvable mysteries of love.

In the live arena she enchants, leaving rooms and festival crowds mesmerised by her voice and warm presence, who find a real connection with Byrne’s intimate songs. This feeling is often shared: “When the show has that magical spirit every person has contributed, even unknowingly, in creating a space of responsiveness to each other through vulnerability, through our unified experience and honesty about our sorrow and our emergence.”
