Los Angeles, CA – September 18, 2015 – Singer-songwriter Julie Belle has released her new EP You Were Younger. Songs in hand, Belle went into the studio in the middle of Texas for five days and emerged with the finished 5-track set. You Were Younger is now streaming exclusively on The Boot and is available for purchase on Amazon.
“I couldn’t be happier with how You Were Younger turned out,” Belle gushes. “Is that super cliche to say? Because it’s true. I holed up in the studio for five days in the outskirts of Houston, Texas with my producer to record this EP and emerged, somewhat delirious, with a collection of songs that I am truly proud of. Those five days were probably the hardest I’ve ever worked on anything; it’s physical labor and it’s soul work and I can’t wait to do it again. Taking myself out of my day-to-day context in LA to work on it really turned the tables. No luxuries of coming back next week to try that vocal part again, no going home early to get a good night of sleep, no time. Just enough time to be intuitive and capture what was happening. As it turns out, I love recording in Texas. It’s starting to feel like a second home. My EP release show may not be in Texas, but you better believe there’s a Texan flying in to play guitar.”
Growing up in a home with a mother who doubled as a piano teacher made music an easy path for Julie Belle. By the time she was four years old she was learning to read music-even before she learned to read English. In 2011, Julie released her long-awaited debut EP, Run, in which she reflects on her young divorce and her uncertainty in how to move forward. “I should have called that first EP ‘Songs from a Tired Heart.’ I listen to those songs now and can’t believe how vulnerable they are. I was too tired to be anything but honest.”
Julie Belle’s new EP, You Were Younger, is available now.
