Winner of Ireland’s prestigious Choice Music Prize in 2009 for her album pages, Julie Feeney is a much-beloved singer-songwriter known for her Kubrick-like involvement in all levels of music production, from composition to instrumentation to designing her distinctive array of headpieces. During her 10-day residency in New York, the powerhouse orchestrator leads an ensemble of strings, horns, keys, and accordions, belting out the chamber-pop hits from her albums pages and 13 songs as well as debuting new material from her upcoming release. Ben Ratliff of the New York Times called the singer’s first album “a charming, urbane, dreamy record,” praising her self-harmonizing talent and ability to fully realize her concepts. In front of the musical backdrop of her ensemble, Julie showcases avant-garde fashion and melodies, inspiring audience members to resonate emotionally and wear their sofa cushions as hats.
