Julie Jurgens

 Chicago, Illinois, USA

Warm, evocative vocals and strong songwriting in the tradition of Bob Dylan, Dolly Parton, Neil Young, and Joni Mitchell.


My name is Julie Jurgens. I write songs, plays, stories, and checks. I dream in color, but usually see things in shades of grey. I hope to one day compose a decent sestina. I adore ellipses, parentheses, and horses. Without coffee, I am a sad tomato. I like to tell stories about the lives of jazz musicians and self-destructive poets. I try to use proper grammar but I cannot explain rules of usage to another person; hence, despite my major in English, I probably could not make it as an English teacher. On rainy days I play sad songs and think of where I’ve been and where I have yet to go.
