ABOUT Nineteen Seventy-Seven LP

1977 is singer-songwriter Julie Kendall, an independent artist making pop music from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Nineteen Seventy-Seven, her first self-produced album was recorded by Julie and Brent Hough (Bellevue, Music Maul, The Nonsense) in the winter of 2007 in their Toronto apartment and rehearsal space. Julie played keyboards, percussion, and bass on the recording while old band-mates shared the remaining instrumentation. Brent played guitar and bass, Jordan Bruce (Bellevue, Purple Hill, The Nonsense) played drums, and Matthew Rubba played drums, guitar, and bass. It was mixed by Alphonse Lanza at his Parkdalian Sound Space and mastered by Noah Mintz at Lacquer Channel Mastering in Toronto. Julie used pieces from Dean Torrence's (Kittyhawk Graphics founding artist and legendary member of Sixties surf band Jan and Dean) design of The Beach Boys album Love You (originally released in 1977) to create the cover art for Nineteen Seventy-Seven with Dean's approval.

The record was nominated in 2010 for a Juno Award in the category Adult Alternative Album of the Year.
