With her deep, blues-soaked voice that poignantly captures the pain of the wronged and forgotten, Julie Roberts quickly became a favorite of fans and fickle music critics alike.
Entertainment Weekly awarded her self-titled debut al- bum an ‘A,’ calling it “one of the most auspicious debuts in years.” The New York Times said Roberts’ 2004 aching and resolute hit, “Break Down Here,” was “one of the year’s best country ballads.”
Spotting her talent early, CMT selected Roberts to be the first artist ever to appear “In the Moment,” the music net- work’s hour-long documentary on the making of a star.
Clinique also realized Julie’s massive appeal and signed her to a one-year deal where she was featured in the cam- paign for the fragrance Happy. Julie recorded a version of singer-songwriter Ne-Yo’s “Just Be Happy,” which was used in radio spots for the fragrance.
With her debut CD and its acclaimed follow-up, “Men and Mascara,” Roberts was country music’s Cinderella, a stun- ning blonde from Lancaster, S.C., who stole everyone’s heart with her honest music, cover-girl looks, exuberant personality and irresistible laughter.
After spending time developing a screenplay based on her life with the writer of the award winning movie Coal Miner’s Daughter, the story of one of Julie’s inspirations, Loretta Lynn; she returned to Nashville to record new music. She soon overcame one of the greatest obstacles
of her life — the devastating 2010 flood in Nashville, which left her without a home.
Now recovered and stronger than ever, she has re- leased new music with “Alive,” which The Washington Post described as, “an album in which she traffics in familiar heartbreak but delivers her lyrics with a little more fire in her lungs. The music is striking.”
“Country music’s newest goddess… one note of Julie Roberts’ deep soulful voice dripping in your ears is all it takes to prove she’s a very different type of talent.” – Maxim Magazine
