A lovely collection of songs written in and around the shores of Erieau, and in and about the village. This CD is full of love and life, warm memories of summertime, sing-a-longs and fun ditties from the last few seasons. Recorded locally, with the help of local musicians, and creative artists, I am very proud of this collection. There's not much rock n roll on this record, but the rhythms and lyrics are melodic and playful.
Eleven songs fill the disk with a folk, americana vibe. Its a summer album!

One of the best CD put out that year from our local scene. Julie is best known for hosting Open Mic Tuesday nights at the Elephants Nest which was swarming with local talent waiting to perform. The CD plays into this theme as several musicians from town appear on the tracks recorded at Franks Music Centre, downtown, Chatham. Julie is well known as an acoustic performer but this album of originals shows her ability to play in a band also.
Thirteen songs fill the disk with an easy listening, pop, acoustic rock, feel good album!
