Julie Lamb brings blues to folk club

Horowhenua Chronicle - - NEWS -

The Julie Lamb Out­fit, a five-per­son group with gui­tar, key­boards, bass and drums will be play­ing at the Levin Folk Mu­sic Club on Fri­day.

Top vo­cal­ists Julie Lamb and Shan Jor­dan, from Welling­ton, will en­ter­tain with some blues-in­fused cov­ers and orig­i­nal sto­ries.

Julie Lamb has recorded four al­bums. Her achieve­ments in­clude: chart­ing on the of­fi­cial NZ Al­bum Charts with the two lat­est al­bums, award wins from the Pa­cific Song­writ­ing Com­pe­ti­tion and Beat100 A&R, be­ing recog­nised all over the world by groups such as Jack and Jill No. 20 and Acid Tapes in Aus­tralia, 1st Re­nais­sance in the UK and Indie Mu­sic Bus Favourites in the USA, be­ing cho­sen to play New Year’s Eve at Welling­ton water­front to a crowd of 10,000.

They say their lat­est al­bum Or­di­nary Days is the band’s great­est of­fer­ing yet with amaz­ing re­views. It con­tains smooth and ex­cit­ing funk, which along with a guest a cap­pella num­ber, of­fers the lis­tener an ap­peal­ing ride with quirky sur­prises.

“It’s great to hear some funky poprock with good old-fash­ioned back­ing vo­cals and horn parts too. A class act made all the bet­ter by the joie-de-vivre it en­cap­su­lates and projects,” wrote Bing Turkby in NZ Mu­sic Mag­a­zine.

Julie is the founder of a cap­pella women’s choir 10dd, as well as vol­un­teer­ing for the Cap­i­tal Blues Club, Aro Creative and The Welling­ton Jazz Or­ches­tra.

Julie also nur­tures up and com­ing mu­si­cians and she is a staunch sup­porter of the Welling­ton live mu­sic scene.

A new ven­ture, The Fold, which she re­cently opened is an in­ti­mate space pre­sent­ing mu­si­cians and per­form­ers to a wel­com­ing au­di­ence.

The band is made up of Julie Lamb, vo­cals, bad jokes and equally du­bi­ous per­cus­sion; Shan Jor­dan, keys, vo­cals; Eoin Williams, gui­tar and sil­ver fox­ness; Chris Furs­don, bass and schol­arly tones and Jor­dan Ross, drums.

Doors are open at 7pm at the Horowhenua Scot­tish So­ci­ety Hall, Bartholomew and Mid­dle­sex Rd, Levin. En­joy the black­board dur­ing the first half of the evening and sup­per, be­fore set­tling in for a great sec­ond half. In­dulge in raf­fle tick­ets to win JLO’s CD or free tick­ets for the Novem­ber con­cert.

Ad­mis­sion is $10 pub­lic, $5 for mem­bers.
