ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Juliane Gardner started her life in Brooklyn New York, however, when she was four her father decided to move them out of the big borough back to his hometown on the coast of Maine, it was then that a country girl was born. "My father's love of jazz would be my first major influence," Juliane recounts. "We used to spend countless hours playing along to the records from the Be-Bop era. It was common for me to hear the greats from Thelonious Monk to Dexter Gordon every day blasting from the living room stereo, these sounds became part of me."

Spending her youth growing up in a small community, she had the opportunity to join Cold Comfort Productions, a local summer stock theatre company that focused on musicals. By the age of nine, Juliane was featured in vocal solos. After being involved with the group for eight years, in classics such as Oliver, Oklahoma, and the Sound of Music, she was hooked and has loved performing ever since.

"When I look back, I was strongly influenced by contemporary pop/rock singers during my teens, however, while in a vocal jazz program in college, my jazz roots resurfaced. I became very interested in singing jazz. Some of my favorite vocalists were and still are: Carmen McRae, Johnny Hartman, Jon Hendricks, Ray Charles, Nina Simon, Cassandra Wilson, and of course Ella Fitzgerald."

"I think the two worlds of jazz and folk merged for me when I started listening to Joni Mitchell. I'll never forget where I was when I heard her version of "Good Bye Pork Pie Hat" (sung by Joni with lyrics she had written); it changed my whole outlook on what it meant to be a vocalist. All these new possibilities were open to me in terms of self-expression; here's a folk singer capturing her take on what it was like for black musicians during the 1940's and 50's as she puts it, "A bright star in a Dark Age, when the band stand had a thousand ways of refusing a black man admission, black musician" I heard this and was moved to tears. It would be years before I started playing the guitar and creating my own songs, but the seeds were planted that night."

Through out her college years Juliane joined and formed many groups, She fronted everything from Top 40 bands to Jazz Trios before shifting her focus to her own song writing. "I started listening to performers such as, Leonard Cohen, Jeff Buckley, Martin Sexton, Patty Larkin, Patty Griffin, and Ani Difranco; it was that summer a friend lent me his guitar. I remember I couldn't believe my ears when I heard Ani's lyrics and the depth of Jeff's voice; I was instantly impressed with Ani's ability to put words together and started keeping a song journal. Probably the biggest turning point as writer was on a bus trip across country when I had many hours to capture my observations in lyrics. For me the motivation behind songwriting is truth telling and not being afraid to wear your heart on your sleeve." Currently Julie shares her life and music with her guitarist & husband, Christopher Poulin, enjoying life on the coast of Maine, writing songs and trying to keep it real as they perform in their bands New Shades of Blue and Positive People.

You'll Find it When You're Not Looking
OK. What do you get when you combine Astrid Gilberto with pine trees and the cool waters of Penobscot Bay?

Juliane Gardner. Her blend of jazz sensibilities and the folksy downeast comfort of coastal Maine provides the listener with a collage of small town relationships, rippling waters, and gentle, pine scented breezes. If you journey to downeast Maine, check her schedule and see her play. If you can't get to Maine, buy her CD and get there in your mind.
