Media Reviews for
Shining Through

"From the opening track, Of Consciousness & Light, Blue's solo piano shines through her latest album. The Vancouver musician and composer writes with deep understanding and plays with strength, clarity and remarkable subtlety. Among the best songs are the enticingly contemplative Floating Moon, the very dreamy Dream Catcher and First Son, a celebration of her first child, Jesse Joy. The music is always hopeful, always holding out the opportunity for renewal - what better way to greet the spring. 4 stars.

A Quote from Julie Blue (Shining Through)

Through darkness. Through doubts and fears. Through disappointments and sadness. There is a force of love - of light, truth and life itself that sustains. Shining Through was composed and recorded during my pregnancy with my first child. It is dedicated to the part in each of us that still believes in wonder and knows that love is real. Julie Blue

Relaxing yet stimulating original instrumental music featuring amazing Piano
This CD is great for background music while driving or working around the house. The instrumental music is relaxing and soothing; yet it holds your attention and is sometimes even surprising. The original songs are beautifully written with lots of variety. The strong solo Piano with subtle backup is very pleasing to the ear.
