An artist with a distinct gift for the craft of songwriting, Julianne Sutton is a captivating performer who sings from the heart. She has the ability to deliver with diverse intensity, powerful one moment and intimate the next. Julianne has spent years honing her songwriting and vocal skills, and studied under premiere vocal coach Don Lawrence.

Julianne plays out as an acoustic duo with brother-in-law Christopher DeMaria, a musical visionary who goes in new directions that seem to please all who hear how much he does on one acoustic guitar. The duo is best described as acoustically based and soulful, with a strong storytelling element to the lyrics. The music, a mixture of pop, folk, rock, blues and country, truly has its own sound. Their sound is often compared to the Indigo Girls, Jewel and Shawn Colvin. The duo has had their music picked up in 8 Movies this year and was recently seletced to score the whole soundtrack to the upcoming thriller "PreMeditated."

The act has written over 200 songs together and has performed at notable venues such as The PNC Arts Center, The Bitter End, The Saint, The Crossroads, The Bluebird Café, and The Broken Spoke. Julianne and Chris have been featured artists on WBAI in New York and WRSU in New Jersey. Additionally, this duo has received numerous songwriting awards from organizations such as Billboard Music, Unisong International, and the Canadian Country Music Association, including the prestigious selection as New Folk Showcase artist in the New Jersey Folk Festival.

They were also selected as one of the top 20 songwriters in the Tri-State area to study the craft with Barbara Cloyd and receive feedback from top Nashville Publishers. Additionally, Broadland International artists Girls Nite Out recently recorded Julianne's song "One Fine Day." She has also written and produced music for the off-Broadway production of Amarelo.

Julianne and Chris are currently gearing up to tour with their upcoming 3rd CD, after taking some time off to write more and each add a son to their respective families.

Lyrics

Puppet Master

Written By: Buccino/Demaria

PUPPET MASTER

VERSE 1:
SHE SAID "WHEN'S THE LAST TIME I MADE A DECISION FOR MYSELF"
THEN SHE LOOKED HIM IN THE EYES AND SAID
"THERE'S NO ONE ELSE, BUT I'M LEAVING"
SHE WENT TO PACK HER BAGS, HE REACHED OUT HIS HAND
TEARS FILLED HER EYES SHE SAID "YOU JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND
I'VE BEEN CHANGING, YOU CAN'T HOLD ME TO THE GIRL I USED TO BE"

CHORUS:
BOY, YOU'VE BEEN MY PUPPET MASTER
AND I'VE BEEN YOUR PRODIGY
BEFORE YOU SAY TO JUMP I'VE BEEN BENDING AT THE KNEES
YOU'VE BEEN PULLING ME SO LONG,
I'VE MISSED SO MANY THINGS
BABY DON'T YOU THINK IT'S TIME THAT WE FINALLY CUT THE STRINGS

VERSE 2:
HE CALLED HER AT HER MOM'S AFTER THREE LONG DAYS HAD PAST
SAID "I'D LIKE TO WORK IT OUT BUT YOU'VE GOT O FACE THE FACTS
THE WAY THEY STAND
YOU NEVER SPOKE YOUR MIND OR ONCE STOOD UP TO ME
I NEVER SAW THE STRENGTH IN YOU 'TILL YOU GOT UP TO LEAVE
AND I'VE BEEN LONGING
FOR SOMEONE NOT AFRAID TO TALK TO ME"

REPEAT CHORUS:
GIRL, IF I'VE BEEN YOUR PUPPET MASTER,
YOU'VE BEEN MY PRODIGY
BEFORE I SAY TO JUMP YOU'VE BEEN BENDING AT THE KNEES
I'VE BEEN PULLING YOU SO LONG,
I'VE MISSED SO MANY THINGS
YES I THINK IT'S TIME THAT WE FINALLY CUT THE STRINGS

The Love You Leave

Written By: Buccino/Demaria

THE LOVE YOU LEAVE

VERSE 1:
STARING AT MY LITTLE GIRL PEACEFULLY SLEEPING
SHE'S SUCH A PERFECT EMPTY SLATE
WONDERING WHAT I'LL SAY THE DAY SHE COMES WEEPING
AND ASKS ME TO EXPLAIN HATE
CAUSE SHE LOOKS TO HER LEFT AND SHE SEES
PEOPLE DYING FOR PEACE
JUST TO LOOK TO HER RIGHT AND SEE MORE
PEOPLE PRAYING FOR WAR
IF I’M HONEST WITH HER, I JUST MIGHT SAY

CHORUS:
I DOUBT THERE'LL EVER BE PEACE
NOT EVERYONE WILL EVER BE FREE
THERE ARE ALWAYS PEOPLE CRYING
EVERYDAY SOMEBODY'S DYING
SOMETIMES IT’S A STRUGGLE TO SURVIVE
BUT TRY TO DO GOOD EVERY DAY OF YOUR LIFE
'CAUSE ONE DAY THOUGH YOU WILL BE GONE
THE LOVE YOU LEAVE WILL CARRY ON
THE LOVE YOU LEAVE WILL CARRY ON

VERSE 2:
SO MANY BADLY BROKEN HOMES
MAMAS LEFT RAISING FAMILIES ALONE
THEIR CHILDREN CRIPPLED BY THE PAIN
CONVINCED THAT THEY'RE TO BLAME
If I COULD TALK TO THOSE MOMS, I THINK I'D SAY

REPEAT CHORUS:

BRIDGE:
WHEN I SIT HERE ROCKING MY GIRL
LOOKING THROUGH HER EYES LOOKING AT THE WORLD
NO DOUBT I'VE GOT TO BELIEVE
THERE'S MORE GOOD IN HER THAN EVER WAS IN ME
AND I GET A LITTLE BIT HOPEFUL ONE DAY
WE MIGHT NOT HAVE TO SAY
WE MIGHT NOT HAVE TO SAY

REPEAT CHORUS:

To Find Me

Written By: Buccino/Demaria

TO FIND ME

VERSE 1
WHEN THE RAIN FALLS DOWN I CAN’T BREATHE
AND IT FEELS LIKE I WON’T WIN
YOU COME ‘ROUND REACH FOR ME AND PULL ME IN

CHORUS
YOU DRY MY TEARS FROM THE INSIDE OUT,
HELP ME SEE A BETTER WAY
REMIND ME WHAT LIFE’S ALL ABOUT, GIVE ME BACK MY STRENGTH
WHEN I’M SO FAR GONE I CAN’T SEE YOU REACH OUT TO FIND ME
YOU REACH OUT TO FIND ME

VERSE 2
WHEN THE STORMS THAT RAGE LEAVE ME COLD
AND LIFE’S ITS MOST UNFAIR
YOU BRING FAITH BACK TO MY SOUL AND LIFT ME FROM DESPAIR

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE
TIME GOES BY, DREAMS GO NUMB
PAIN COMES TO EVERYONE
YOU’VE BEEN THERE IN MY TIMES OF NEED
WHEN YOU ARE WEAK PLEASE TURN TO ME

REPEAT CHORUS

The Silence

Written By: Buccino/Demaria

THE SILENCE

VERSE 1:
YOU WANT RIGHT WORDS FOR A MOMENT LIKE THIS
I TEND TO DOUBT THAT THERE EVER REALLY IS
AND YOU WANT LOGIC WHERE I SEE JUST PAIN
LIKE YOU WANT ANSWERS WHERE I SEE NO BLAME

CHORUS:
SO COMES THE SILENCE, SO COMES THE FEAR
SO FAR FROM ANGER- AND TOO SAD FOR TEARS

VERSE 2:
YOU WANT A TIME MACHINE TO TAKE US BACK TO WHEN
BUT I JUST DON'T BELIEVE WE'LL EVER BE WHAT WE WERE THEN
CAUSE THERE ARE SOME FACTS YOU CAN'T TAKE BACK
LIKE THERE ARE SOME LIES THAT CAN ONLY MEAN GOODBYE

BRIDGE:
THIS IS HOW IT ENDS, WHERE IT ALL FALLS DOWN
EVERYTHING THAT WE'VE BEEN IS OVER NOW

REPEAT CHORUS

I Let You In

Written By: Buccino/Demaria

I LET YOU IN

VERSE 1
YOU DRAW ME IN WITH EVERY WORD, WITH EVERY BREATH
IN ALL MY LIFE I NEVER FELT SO DEFENSELESS
IT’S DEEP WITHIN THE THINGS YOU DO AND WHAT YOU SAY
I KNOW I SHOULD BUT I CAN’T KEEP MYSELF AWAY
THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT YOU THAT JUST DRAWS ME CLOSE
‘TILL AGAINST ALL MY JUDGEMENT I LET GO

CHORUS
AND I LET YOU IN, I LET YOU IN, AGAIN AND AGAIN OH, I LET YOU IN

VERSE 2
IT’S LIKE A MOVIE YOU WATCH AND KNOW ALL THE WHILE
DANGERS THERE BUT YOU CAN’T STOP THE DOWNWARD SPIRAL
PASSIVELY I’M WITNESSING MY LIFE
UNABLE TO DEFEND, UNWILLING TO FIGHT
THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT YOU THAT JUST DRAWS ME CLOSE
‘TILL AGAINST ALL MY JUDGEMENT I LET GO

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE
YOU’RE DOOMING MY SOUL, I KNOW FOR SURE
BUT WHENEVER YOU CALL I OPEN THE DOOR

REPEAT CHORUS

The Light

Written By: Buccino/Demaria

THE LIGHT

VERSE 1
LIFE NEVER FELT THIS PEACEFUL
COLORS NEVER SHONE SO BRIGHT
I NEVER FELT LIKE SOMEONE'S EQUAL
NEVER HELD SOMEONE SO RIGHT BUT

CHORUS
I FOLLOWED THE LIGHT AND THE LIGHT BROUGHT ME TO YOU
THE WORLD SHINES BRIGHTER BY YOUR SIDE
I FOLLOWED THE LIGHT, THE LIGHT BROUGHT ME TO YOU
AND YOUR LOVE IS MY GUIDE
YOUR LOVE IS MY GUIDE

VERSE 2
I NEVER KNEW SUCH PURPOSE
NEVER SENSED MY OWN STRENGTH
I WAS AFRAID MY DREAMS WERE WORTHLESS
BUT THROUGH YOU I'M CHANGED

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE
I FEAR NOT, I DO NOT HESITATE, I WILL WALK BY YOUR SIDE
WHEN YOU NEED COMFORT YOU'LL HAVE MY HAND TO TAKE
I PROMISE YOU ALL MY LIFE

REPEAT CHORUS
