Julia Kasdorf is an award-winning, professional music performer & songwriter. She has spent her whole life playing and performing in bands, duos, and as a solo artist, so she knows know songs in many styles, including Beatles, standards, classic rock, jazz, old and new country, motown, folk, and popular songs of today. Requests are welcome - this develops a nice bond between the musician and the audience, enhancing the overall energy of the event. Julia's voice is rich and subtle, without affectation, and it's what people appreciate most about her performance.

Julia plays wineries, breweries, and listening rooms all over the DC region. Sometimes she's hired to be the highlight of an event, other times simply to provide background music to support the client experience. Julia does this superbly. Through years of experience refining her vocal delivery and guitar technique, she has hit upon the fine balance of enhancing, not interrupting, the flow of a working establishment or event.

Julia can choose from over 500 songs in her repertoire, and can always find the songs that feel right for the event. She is always up to learn special songs to help make the event apecial and memorable, and it also helps build her repertoire. Julia watches the flow of the event, and chooses songs accordingly - she tones it down for conversations, and brings it right back up when folks want to engage or dance. She has a professional sound system and lights, and can also play the client's choice of recorded music between sets.

Julia can also appear as a duet or in a trio, fattening up the sound with other instruments, including pedal steel, percussion, and bass.

Julia also likes to play music cafes and listening rooms, because then she gets a chance to play her own award-winning music. Julia likes every one, no matter what age, to feel that they are welcome. By gratifying a song request, however dated or obscure, she acknowledges that person, and helps them feel more connected to the day. Julia loves people, and it shows when she plays.

Julia was a great performer. She was very interactive with the audience. Her professionalism is top notch and talent is awe inspiring. She was on time and was set up and ready to go in a very short time. I highly recommend her for any event small, medium or large. She has the talent to carry the room and then some. We will be hiring her on regular basis.

We booked Julia to play for a group of elderly veterans who are discerning in their music choices. Julia quickly won them over with a great mix of pop, country and classic rock songs. She played requests and handled them well. I highly recommend Julia and we will definitely have her back.
