Making a Scene Presents an Interview with Julia Kasdorf
Julia Kasdorf has been performing live music most of her life, from punk in SF to alt-country in DC. When she moved from the west coast to the east, she co-led the award-winning alt-country band One Horse Town in northern Virginia. Julia’s songwriting skills come to the fore on the band’s album, Dawn Will Deliver, described by Mike Joyce of the Washington Post as “wickedy catchy songs…glorious harmonies…a gem.
Now Julia is focused on her solo career as a performing songwriter in the DC region. Her recent album, Motel, is about to hit the streets. Produced with the help of Les “Nitty Gritty Dirt Band” Thompson and Dustin Delage, the record includes 8 original and 3 “deep-catalog” covers, all of which bear Julia’s signature commitment to her vision. “This album”, she says, “is a crystallization of everything I love about music – driving rhythm, great grooves, stories, and evocative, visual lyrics.” “Motel”, which also features Jon “Mary Chapin Carpenter” Carroll and Mike Ault, demo man for PRS guitars, is a driving stomp through roots music from Bristol TN to Motor City.
