About this Event

"Perhaps the best way to explain Julia would be if Norah Jones, Tom Waits, Billie Holiday, and Lyle Lovett had a musical orgy and let you watch behind a curtain of burning lace and a whiskey waterfall. I'll bring the unfiltered cigarettes, you bring your soul." - Out of Print Magazine

Julia Othmer is a "captivating" piano-playing singer/songwriter known for her energetic live performances. Her new album "SOUND" - a collaboration with UK-based producer/composer James T Lundie will be released in April of 2019. “SOUND sounds so good” writes Elmore Magazine, it has “stunningly sophisticated and dramatic architecture” and is “spellbinding and visceral.” Acclaimed music writer Tim Finn describes SOUND as a “self-made record with a big-label sound… rich in space and soaring dynamics and rife with layers and textures and melodies and grooves.” Public Radio host Bob McWilliams says her “songs are powerful.”

The album’s first two singles – “Purple and Gray” and “Hungry Days (Make Me Feel)”

have reached over 275,000 views on YouTube and featured on over 100 radio stations around the world. Chart highlights include Pop Radio UK #1, Big Indie Giant (South Africa) #3, UK Independent #6, and Radio VGR (UK) #2. “Hungry Days (Make Me Feel)” was featured on Japan’s #1 radio station “ and highlighted as a “Top 3 Indie Videos” by InterFM host Mike “In Tokyo” Rogers.

Tracks from Julia’s critically lauded debut album, oasis motel, have been featured on numerous shows including Witches of East End, Switched at Birth, The Lying Game, Army Wives, and DeGrassi: The Next Generation. She has received songwriting awards from the Billboard World Song Contest and the International Songwriting Competition. She has shared the stage with Sarah McLachlan, Emmylou Harris, Heart, Regina Spektor, The Alarm, Lisa Loeb and John Waite among others.

Julia is a lover of books & libraries & the New York Times Sunday Crossword Puzzle. She is currently obsessed with ancient civilizations and their wisdom traditions. She lives in LA. Her hometown is KC.

Amado Espinoza (Bolivia) is a unique performing artist and

instrument maker that respects his folk traditions of the Andes Mountains, while creating compositions that are sincere to his musical-wanderlust personality. While a specialist in the Bolivian Charango, he can be seen playing dozens of instruments with Ayllu, Colectivo Yanquitl, the Amado Espinoza Trio, or as a featured guest with Ensemble Iberica. Amado is a 2017 Charlotte Street Performing Arts Fellow and a past TEDxKC performer. He has made waves at the Folk Alliance International (Kansas City, MO), World Music Fest (Branson, MO), Bolivian Embassy celebration, (Washington, DC), just to name a few, and internationally (including Cuba, Mexico, Uruguay, Argentina, Peru, Bolivia, Columbia). He has clients for his custom-made instruments on three continents.
