Julie's angelic voice delicately renders snapshots of life and love. Her sultry snarl on "Bad Boys" is a pleasant shocker. Grower has an knack for penning tunes that reside comfortable in your ear. - Songwriters' Monthly


Julie Grower is a songwriter's songwriter.Grower's minimally inflected vocals work well on the jazz-blues tunes like "Here Comes the Storm" and "Bad Boys," during which one imagines oneself in a cabaret drinking a whiskey sour, glancing at the singer through a haze of smoke while casing the joint for romantic possibilities… as our President might say, make no mistake: on the evidence of this treasure chest of songs, Julie Grower is a songwriter to watch.

The moody undertones of Julie's voice sets the right tone for this understated piece of songwriting pleasure. The stories are simple, yet when delivered by Julie, they take on subtle shades of interpretation.
Her relaxed handling of the lyrics creates a sense of shadowed indifference to the stories being conveyed. Julie Grower proves that even small changes in vocal tone or minute shifts in the music can excel the songs to brave new heights of glory. Julie Grower makes it look so easy, and makes it sound so good.
