Juli Johnson Album Release with Linn Jennings

Bos Meadery, 849 East Washington, Madison, Wisconsin 53703

Juli Johnson is releasing her first full length album! Juli wrote many of these songs while she was in college and also when she was living in South Korea. She found a music producer from Canada while she was living in Korea, and recorded an EP with Underground Trax (released 2015). She had such a good time in the studio, that she turned around and recorded her first full album with Underground Trax producing it as well. The album was finished shortly after her return to the United States in 2016, after living in S. Korea for two years. Due to a tear in her vocal cord, and a long and grueling vocal rehabilitation, Juli wasn't able to sing without a lot of pain for about a year after that. Depression from not being able to sing set in, making it a slow road to recovery and playing publicly again. Now that she's got her singing voice back, and has been able to perform her music without pain, she is eager to share her first full length album with you!! Come and get a copy of the album! Thank you so much for your support!!

Juli began writing songs while she was in college. She studied musical theatre and French, and learned that she couldn't travel without a guitar and a notebook to write songs and poetry in. She left college with a Performing Arts degree. After doing a lot of community theatre, Juli moved to South Korea to teach English as a Foreign Language. She found herself spending the weekends on the beach with her guitar and a bottle of rice wine. Her beach time was spent soaking up sunshine and writing songs while listening to the waves on the shore. Then she met a music producer from Canada and spent the next year recording both an EP and a full-length album before moving back to the United States in early 2016. After a few months of living with her sister in Pittsburgh, she moved to Taiwan to teach English again. A family tragedy brought her back to the US a month later. At this point, Juli couldn’t sing with out pain due to overusing her voice while teaching. She returned to her former voice teacher in Madison, who helped her rehabilitate her vocal ability. It took about a year before she was able to sing without pain. Meanwhile, she stopped writing songs because not being able to sing made her very sad. 

After being completely miserable from not being able to sing, Juli decided to stop being miserable. She started studying music business and forced herself to sit alone quietly long enough to write songs.  Eventually, with the help of her voice teacher, and a lot of hard work, her voice returned to normal and she was singing every day again, without pain! Currently, Juli is working on writing her first musical, and also performs her original music in Madison.
