Julia “ Julez” Batterman is a 22 years old rock and blues musician from New Jersey/New York, influenced by musicians such as, Linda Ronstadt, Alanis Morrissette, Grace Slick, Courtney Barnett, Fiona Apple, Jimi Hendrix and much more.
Julez grew up in a musical family, and therefore was introduced to music at a young age. Julez has been a singer since she was just a toddler, and at the age of seven, she began piano lessons performing in many recitals. When Julez received her first acoustic guitar at age eight, she immediately grew a strong interest in song-writing, and knew that she wanted to be a musician.
Although hailing from the north, Julez’s new single “Get Down Stay Down” sounds like it came straight out of Muscle Shoals or Electric Lady.
Gritty, powerful vocals and dynamic guitar licks, this track feels nostalgic and psychedelic. “Get Down Stay Down” speaks of the desire to skip town, forget the stress, and reminisce on the what-could-have-been’s of past love. While the lyrics may sound romantic, the delivery is anything.
In Review: “Get Down Stay Down” has a strong early Rock / Blues influence but is completely her own, with hard edge vocals that pull the spine straight and guitar work of a riff master twice her years, Julia Batterman is well on her way to Blues based music elite, I would like to say she has the potential to be a fist pumping “Bonnie Raitt” style of artist. We look to see more great music from her. She has a down to earth “Beauty and the Beat” look and a voice to match.
