Julia Mark brings her folk-pop-jazz music to Brandon

Julia Mark is a singer, pianist and songwriter performing jazz-inflected folk/pop — we’ve heard that before. What makes Mark unique are the subjects of her songs. She writes lyric-driven, optimistically dissonant songs about life on the moon, loss of memory, shifting homes and palindromes.
Mark returns to the Brandon Music stage with upright bass player Forrest Pettengill this Saturday, Aug. 4, 7:30 p.m., before she embarks on an East Coast to Midwest tour.
With the songwriting penchant of Carole King and the soft-easy vocals of Suzanne Vega, Mark is for the listener who likes to transcend into a musical and visual scene. Plus she is captivating to watch.
Mark grew up in semi-rural New Jersey, listening to bebop greats and folk music legends. After several years of classical piano lessons, she began writing her own music as a student of the late jazz pianist, Eric Doney. Upon graduating from Wesleyan University with degrees in psychology and music, Mark continued northward to Boston and became immersed in the singer-songwriter scene. She was a 2016 Iguana Music Fund grantee, spurring the creation of her first full-length album (“Gemini”), released this year.
Saturday’s show is $20. Add dinner for an extra $25. Reservations are required for dinner and recommended for the show. Venue is BYOB. Call (802) 247-4295 or email [email protected] to reserve or for more info.
