Roots, Rock, & Soul Music

Julia Kasdorf has been making a strong name for herself as one of Loudoun’s top female performers with her exceptional voice and top-notch guitar skills.  She has played everything from punk to jazz, in different outfits all over the country.    Now a solo performer, Julia has a decade-spanning catalog of standards, pop hits, jazz, folk and rock ‘n roll. She loves to bring out some old Motown, or forgotten hits of the 60s and 70s, songs people may have forgotten but are delighted to hear again.     She enjoys taking requests – Sinatra, Joni Mitchell, Bowie – which can really require some fast thinking and puts her musicality to the test.  Julia recently released her best album to date, “Motel“.  A distillation of what Julia loves most about music, it is solidly Americana and features 8 original songs and 3 deep catalog covers. Motel has gotten respectable spins on Americana stations all over the US, Canada, and Europe.
