“Dropping Julia is the culmination of guitarist Emily Kresky’s journey as a musician, which she began in New Jersey at age 19. After developing her chops on the road, Kresky landed in Charlottesville where she formed the four-piece pop rock band. Rootsy Americana graced by jazz and folk is channeled through “Jersey sass and Virginia charm” on the group’s debut album, Wake Up.”
“Dropping Julia’s Wake Up is a tight album that blends a variety of genres to form a strong sound. Enough can’t be said about Emily Kresky’s amazing voice. It’s rough, raspy yet elegant and filled with soul. Of course it wouldn’t be as impactful without a fantastic group of musicians surrounding her.” —- Read more HERE!
“At times it sounds like the Country Rock album Amy Winehouse never made [but the singing sounds more Jazz like at times], a collection of words I never expected to write! At other times there is an almost funky vibe to the songs, this is not an easily pinned down band.” - 3 Songs & Out —- Read more HERE!
