New York City rockers Jules and the Family have been writing and performing music together since September, 2001. The band’s sound and style is a smooth composite of the interests and backgrounds of its four members: modern pop, story-based folk, danceable soul, and straight-up rock.
Jules and the Family has just completed its sophomore album, Border Radio. Completely and professionally written, recorded, produced, and engineered by the members of the band, John Madden (percussion), Marc Osborn (bass and keyboards), Jonathan Lloyd (guitars) and Julie Corbalis (guitars and vocals), this new record has already begun to generate a buzz in the music industry and among fellow artists and fans. These four talented musicians have pooled their artistic and technical skills to create a very modern sounding album that is tough to categorize but easy to listen to and identify with. The new album also welcomes guest performances by Grammy Award winner, Cherish The Ladies founder, and Irish whistle virtuoso, Joanie Madden, as well as world renowned jazz instrumentalist Rob Schepps. A direct result of this buzz is that Jules and the Family’s Spring and Summer concert schedule is rapidly booking up! Some events include a tour of festivals and clubs in the New York area and Ontario, Canada!
Over the past five years Jules and the Family has cultivated an eclectic and growing fan base in the New York City area, as well as in Belgium and The Netherlands, two countries frontwoman Julie Corbalis toured in April, 2005 and August, 2006. Irish singer/songwriter, Pat Kelly, perpetually on tour in Europe, has said Corbalis is, “One of the finest singer-songwriters to come out of the U.S. in recent times.” The band has also achieved much success promoting its music on the internet, racking up over 220,000 hits since May of 2005 on the website https://www.tradebit.com. With the release of this new album, Jules and the Family plans to continue building its loyal following on this sturdy foundation of friendship, talent and the shared goal of creating the best music possible.
