Julie Black Band

A kindred spirit of free and fiery souls, songwriter and songstress Julie Black finds inspiration everywhere. Julie Black is a critically-acclaimed artist, singer, songwriter, and poet whose personal story is deep, complex, and inspiring. True to the muse, she’s an artist unconfined. Early influences like Solomon Burke and Etta James flavor her sound, as do elements of jazz, soul, gospel, swing, and rock; she gives a musical experience that is one-of-a-kind….blues with an open mind. A Tampa Bay-based artist, Black has graced radio charts and some of the finest stages in the South including the Clearwater Jazz Holiday, Tropical Heatwave, Chasco Fiesta, Southwest Florida Music Festival, Dunedin Wines the Blues, Clearwater Sea Blues Festival, House of Blues, and much more. Accompanied by her vibrant band of music men Dave Eichenberger (guitar), Frankie Timpanelli (drums), and John Bell (bass), her soulful voice dishes out powerful truth music. She’s performed her original music on live radio; on ABC, CBS, and NBC television. She’s a Grammy-nominated songwriter who co-wrote Heartless Man Blues with legendary vocalist Shaun Murphy (Little Feat, Bob Seger, Eric Clapton). Her three original albums: Call Me Angel for Blues, You Just Might Win, and Follow the Muse can be found on iTunes, CD Baby, Amazon, and across the radio-waves worldwide. Filled with emotional truth, clarity, and vision, she’s a genuine original with something interesting to say. Artist website: www.julieblackmusic.com
