The Sweet Unraveling is Julie's third CD. This disc begins yet another chapter in a full and rewarding career of writing and performing as one of the finest divas in New England's substantial folk/pop arena. With over 30 years as a career singer-songwriter, Julie has well established herself as a respected and loved performer in the region's folk scene. In addition, Julie has enjoyed extensive forays into the music scenes of Nashville, Texas, and Los Angeles. Julie's solo renditions of her music are haunting and beautiful. She also performs with various accompanying musicians as the occasion demands, ranging from a lone guitarist or saxophonist up to a full band. Julie's versatile compositions have been interpreted equally well in the most intimate coffee houses and on large festival stages. Julie's talent and work have been recognized and praised by many of her peers and mentors. Here's a sampling of what some are saying about Julie's new CD The Sweet Unraveling: 'I don't know anybody that can pull folk, jazz and funk together like you, gal! What a pleasure to hear you connect all your talented dots over such a rich array of players...' Noel Paul Stookey of Peter, Paul, & Mary 'The emotions are raw, the lyrics confessional, and the arrangements are rich, though never overdone. It's an ambitious work worth every bit of the time I spent with it: truly adult music in the best sense of the word. The country-pop template is gone, and in it's stead are arrangements that remind me of Joni Mitchell at her most essential. Julie never gets lost in that great woman's shadow, though: she travels this territory simultaneously with the assurance of a professional and the delight of a child. It's a tremendously satisfying work.' Bob Franke Nationally acclaimed Singer/Songwriter 'Great songs. Flawless musicianship and the voice of an angel. Julie Dougherty is a treasure.' Don White Nationally acclaimed Singer/Songwriter/Humorist See the review of The Sweet Unraveling in the June Issue '06 issue of Performing Songwriter Magazine.
