Heart-thumping, Lyric-driven Indie Folk
Julie Loyd is a professional indie folk singer-songwriter, toting along her banjo, guitar and heart-thumping, lyric-driven songs. Loyd is a seasoned performer with 20 years of experience on the stage – 10 years touring nationally (170+ shows per year) – and a stage presence that Curve Magazine characterized as "kick-ass.” She grew up as a child of musical theater and while her music is deeply rooted in the modern folk tradition, her ability to convey deep meaning through her performance is what makes her live shows so special. Her tours have included performances at prestigious listening rooms such as Bluebird Café (Nashville), Club Passim (Boston), The Bitter End (NYC), The Iron Horse Music Hall (Northampton), Hotel Café (LA), and Schuba's (Chicago). Her tours have always been notable, performing with artists such as Shawn Mullins, Patty Larkin, Alana Davis, Michelle Malone, and Chris Barron (of the Spin Doctors), to name a few.
Over her career she has released 6 solo albums that range from folk-pop (The Waiting Room, produced by David Perlick-Molinari of French Horn Rebellion) to indie-grass (Dandelions & Party Queens, produced by Evan Brubaker) to her latest indie-pop EP (What The Waves Said produced by AG of The Rescues). She’s currently working on songs for her 7th album which is expected to be a return to her indie folk, acoustic-driven roots.
Julie Loyd has lived across the country including Chicago, Boston, Northampton (MA), Asheville (NC), New York City, and now lives outside New York in Westport, CT.
