CD: JULIA NEVILLE – Six Strings Are Hard On Diamond Rings

JULIA NEVILLE
Six Strings Are Hard On Diamond Rings
 
This is a ‘single’ song CD, extremely handy for DJ
distribution, sent to me by Allen Karl, one of our very best classic
country performing artists that comes to LeMars.  He’s also the CEO of
Century II Records in Nashville.  Donna Cunningham, Executive director
of Artist Development for Century II, discovered this incredibly gifted
young woman at the Southern Ohio Opry in Lucasville, Ohio.  This
particularly well written song, a good ‘story’ song about being a
musician, the demands of trying to earn a living doing that, and being
in love, and being married, and being, yes BEING one of the many music
makers, perhaps God’s most underpaid servants, tells it like it is. 
Extremely well written song, but it’s Julia’s voice that ‘sells’ the
song.  It always takes two to tango, and music-maker Julia does
the dance beautifully with Jason Deere who wrote the song.  This
lovely girl has a hard ladder to climb, she already knows that, but I
would suggest that Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood, move over a
little bit so Julia can easily get by you on those charts you think so
highly of.  If you don’t, she’ll go over your head anyway.  Why? 
Because Julia doesn’t need the ‘box’ to make her sound good, and she’s
singing ‘truth’ an element that has sort of faded out of country music
in Nashville.  Marty Martel produced, using some elegant musicians, just
right for the job.  Not sure the Rural Roots Music Commission is up for
“Contemporary CD Single of the Year” but I sure am going to press them
for it.
