I don’t know much about Julien, but I have several Pittsburgh friends who are deep into the American singer/songwriter scene and I kind of happened onto her that way. Her songs are super nice and she definitely has some kind of vocal power that sucks you in and makes you stay for a while. Looking forward to seeing her live for the first time.

I know a little more about Cold Weather. I met Mark at a party not long after arriving in Pittsburgh, and after our first conversation I quickly realized that we had a lot in common and he was someone I wanted to talk to more. Cold Weather’s debut full-length is so cohesive and visual– I was instantly a fan. Are you a Heatmiser or Elliot Smith fan? Then you might dig this too.
