You Were Mine -- the first single from my forthcoming album MOTHERSHIP -- is now on Spotify, Apple Music/iTunes, Soundcloud, YouTube, and other digital platforms. Atwood Magazine recently described it as "an icy, heavy-hearted surrender" (read the full review here).
I wrote and recorded You Were Mine (and most of MOTHERSHIP) alone in a cabin in the woods in the Adirondack Mountains.
This is my deepest, most layered work to date, and I am so grateful to be able to share it with all of you.
I recently chatted with Magnetic Magazine about creativity, being a female producer, and leaving my comfort zone. Click HERE to read the full interview and hear Someone To Save Me, my new collaboration with producer/artist The Land Below (also available on Spotify, Apple Music/iTunes, Soundcloud, and Amazon).
"As a seasoned producer, she wields her will like a sword, crafting intricate sonic landscapes with an expert's hand. As I Am Snow Angel, she tells her truth with heartfelt vocals and powerful songwriting. Her live set [is] equal parts spellbinding and spectacular; she waxes between all facets of human emotions with the same ease that she skillfully operates her Ableton Push in crafting her songs live. Through it all, she retains a sincerity that enables her wide and varied emotional range to land, no matter the message." -- Magnetic Magazine
I have a brand new song to share with you!
I’m thrilled to announce that I'll be playing South by Southwest 2018. This will be my first trip to Austin, and I’m very excited about it!

Let me know if you’re going to be in Austin for the festival!
In other news, my recent sound design work has come to fruition. I designed several of the midi synth presets available in the newest, long-awaited version of Ableton Live (Ableton Live 10). Ableton is an electronic music software and hardware company based in Berlin. My sounds are featured in the new “Synth Essentials” soundpack.

"The project of songwriter and producer Julie Kathryn, the haunting tension of ‘Losing Face’ accentuates a variety of electronic and organic colours. A muted chop’ n’ chuck provides the percussive backbone while an eerie soundscape is steadily configured as Kathryn succumbs to lust. “You’re different when you’re on top of me… how I hate the state I’m in” she paradoxically reflects, as bubbling detuned synth swirls and acoustic guitar penetrate the foreboding atmosphere in the vein of ‘Felt Mountain’ era GOLDFRAPP."
Mike has reviewed all of the submissions and has picked his three favorite remixes from I Am Snow Angel, Herb Strike, and Hänk B. Mike shared his thoughts on I Am Snow Angel's remix sharing he "especially dug the swirly, sad, nebulous section at the top, with the Mellotron-like sound wafting back and forth".

“It felt wonderful to express myself and reveal another layer of this song through dance. For me, this track is moody and dark, but also somehow sweet and nostalgic. I allowed myself to feel all of this while creating these visuals.”
