ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
So this is growing up.

In Julie Corbalis’ first solo effort, “Old Flames and New Names,” followers of the musician’s career will recognize a more mature Jules than the one they first heard sing at Broadway Station in Astoria, Queens, back in September 2001, when the smoke from 9/11 was still stinging our eyes. Those who are new to her music will be left wondering what they missed all those years.

Those of us who have had the pleasure of knowing her since back before we became ourselves will hear the growth that comes from her living life to the fullest for the past 7 years. If you don’t cry at “Aunt Margaret,” the fifth track on the CD, you should check your pulse. “No Good” evokes images of smoky jazz lounges where women in slinky dresses sing atop pianos (think Michelle Pfiefer in “The Fabulous Baker Boys”). “Should've Stayed Away,” arguably the best song on the album, is a beautiful country ballad that puts to music all the thoughts we’ve found ourselves at the bottom of a bottle of Bud, sitting next to some guy we know is just going to break our hearts. Again.

The album is a departure from the old Jules and the Family vibe. Gone are the feel-good, poppy tunes like,“We say Nothing” and “The Greek Song.” Even “Dolores,” a beautiful song on their first album, doesn’t come close to the raw emotion on this album. Jules has poured her heart and heartbreak into this album and what results is a soulful collection of songs you’ll be nursing your next broken heart to.

The best of the best
Julie, what else can we say other than it's a beautiful album sung by our beautiful daughter! We are so very proud of you (again). This CD plays in the car all the time. And of course we have our favorite songs too!! And thanks to all the people that helped you make this happen; especially Sculls, Fred, Debbie, Chris and so many others.

Love, Mom and Dad
