Making a Scene Presents an Interview with Juliana MacDowell
Juliana MacDowell is a singer-songwriter, living between Loudoun County, Virginia and Key West, Florida, whose earthy vocals and moving originals unite her with listeners in unforced and memorable ways. She fell in love with music as a toddler when her grandfather hoisted her up on the bench of his Steinway – the piano she plays to this day.
Juliana’s second album, “Leaving Home,“ signed to the Indie label, Conch Town Music, features a cast of prodigious players from across the globe. With award winning songs like “All Those Things” and “Two Kinds Of People,” Juliana’s work is gaining traction beyond the east coast, where she got her start. Juliana’s third album takes her to Nashville to record with legendary engineer/producer, Bil VornDick (Alison Krauss; Bela Fleck; Ralph Stanley…) Whether at home or on the road, she loves playing with her band, The Agreeables. “I told the guys to come up with a clever name for themselves; months went by and they couldn’t agree. I said, ‘Ya’ll are just so damned disagreeable’ that was it! The name stuck!”
