They are featured in the July/August 2014 issue of Curve Magazine and also featured as one of the 100 Women We Love in the Summer 2014 issue of GO Magazine.
Julia Weldon
Julia Weldon
Light Is a Ghost is the follow up to Brooklyn indie-folk-pop artist Julia Weldon’s 2008 self-titled debut. Produced by Saul MacWilliams (Ingrid Michaelson, Dan Romer) and featuring Adam Christgau (Sia, Tegan and Sara) on drums, the album showcases Weldon’s storytelling, voice, and unmistakable charisma.

Weldon’s album unfurls as an evolving ride through life, family and relationships, complete with the necessary loss, regret, resentment, and debauchery. Classic while being contemporarily resonant, the album’s twelve tracks draw on everything from indie folk to blues rock, dialoguing with current artists like Bon Iver, Iron and Wine, and Cat Power as well as legends like Bob Dylan, Elliott Smith and Suzanne Vega. A self-taught, nationally touring musician, Julia Weldon’s possessing personality and captivating music crosses bridges and divides. With unfailing fingers, she tells stories that feel both intensely personal and widely universal. Unapologetically herself, Weldon’s songs grab you— asking you to pull up a chair, pour yourself a whiskey, and stay a while.
