Julie Christensen’s Album Release Party at SOhO

With a performance history of over twenty years, pop-soul-rock-jazz vocalist Julie Christensen is now releasing her third album. Christensen has quite a reputation, having collaborated with numerous musicians and even performing in Dublin, but she is perhaps most prominent as the vocalist for the L.A. post-punk band Divine Horsemen and singing with the notable Leonard Cohen. With her band Stone Cupid, Christensen and partner Karen Hummack released her first two albums, Love is Driving (1997) and Soul Driver (2001), under the Stone Cupid label.

Where The Fireworks Are is Christensen’s solo album, full of original tracks about the current confused state of the world along with a few remakes, including Elvis Costello’s “Shipbuilding” and Randy Newman’s “I Think it’s Going to Rain Today.” Several venues will stage the release of Where The Fireworks Are, with opening night at Santa Barbara’s SOhO on Monday, April 23. The Stone Cupids will be performing with her, with members keyboardist/co-writer Karen Hammack, guitarist and Indy regular Joe Woodard, drummer Tom Lackner, and bassist Steve Nelson.

The show begins at 1221 State St. at 8 p.m., with more information at or by (805) 962-7776.
