Press play and it might surprise you! If you're ready for this meeting it might even like you. Put your headphones on and you'll hear the pounding, or subtle sound, of a piano, organic strings, wood, breathing, cracking; a world of sounds so natural, you might think the music is happening in your room and the singer's voice is getting closer and closer to a whisper in your ear.
Julia Marcell's debut album is a collection of stories and, as she describes them herself, ? simple stories, to make sure everyone gets them, but still not too simple, to make sure everyone gets them in a different way.?
Musically, classical punk is possibly the best way to describe her style: classical because of the intentions and punk because of the execution. The sound is raw, yet positive, and it?s not only instruments you hear in the completely live recording, but the musicians' actual presence in the room. You can hear the shoes of a dancer, the accordion breathing, and all the fun it is to play with anything you can grab and make use of.
Funded by 657 people from all over the world, Julia's album is the first release by a Polish artist through Sellaband.com ? a website built on the innovative idea of fans investing in music. Produced by Moses Schneider and recorded in Chez Cherie studio in Berlin, the album features sounds made by singer-songwriter and piano player Julia Marcell, a string quartet of very young musicians from Poland and 4 guest drummers playing sometimes simultaneously. Mixed by Moses Schneider in Transporterraum and mastered by Michael Schwabe at Monoposto, the album captures the same spirit of fun and love of music it was created in.
