Julie Robert first burst onto the scene with 2004's "Breakdown Here," which ultimately charted in the Top 20 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs tally. She then followed that up with a pair of records for Mercury, later releasing music on her own Ain't Skeerd label. Despite lack of commericial viability or radio hits, Julie did not let that damper her progression to a admirable beacon of hope in a dismal country music landscape, delivering her best recordings of her career.
With "Good Wine and Bad Decisions" she attempts to carve out her own little niche in the market, a sulty hybrid of blues, country, americana and soul. Needless to say, she delivers one of the year's truly interesting records. As her first wide scale release in seven (long) years, Julie's album is the first release in decades for the iconic Sun Records, a studio which gave fans the blessed music of Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley and Conway Twitter (among many others). It's touted as "Where Rock and Roll Was Born," and Julie does not disappointed with "Good Wine." In fact, her voice has never sounded as good, or as alluring as it does here.
