Juliana MacDowell is an Americana singer-songwriter, living between Loudoun County, Virginia and Key West, Florida, whose earthy vocals and moving originals unite her with listeners in unforced and memorable ways. She fell in love with music as a toddler when her grandfather hoisted her up on the bench of his Steinway - the piano she plays to this day.
Juliana's second album, "Leaving Home," signed to Indie label, Conch Town Music, features a cast of prodigious players from across the globe. With award winning songs like "All Those Things" and "Two Kinds of People," Juliana's work has gained traction beyond the east coast where she got her start. Juliana's third album takes her to Nashville to record with legendary engineer/producer, Bil VornDick (Alison Krauss, Ralph Stanley, Bela Fleck...).
Whether at home or on the road, Juliana loves playing with her band, The Agreeables. "I told the guys to come up with a name for themselves. Months went by and they couldn't agree. I just said 'Ya'll are just so damned disagreeable!' The name stuck.
"More than just a woman singing into a microphone, Juliana is an entertainer who connects with fans, reaches out to them and draws them in to the power of the music. (KS, MUSE-ic Monthly).
“Juliana MacDowell has a great instrument with which to communicate and can belt it out or be soft and intimate - pitch perfect with a depth of resonance regardless of dynamic. There is a finish when she releases a note; it stays with you. ”
“Juliana reminds me a lot of the late Eva Cassidy in that, like Eva, she seems incapable of singing an ill-advised note or taking a song in the wrong direction. Unlike too many performers for whom it’s all about them, Juliana respects the song and her role of communicator. And she has a great instrument with which to communicate. ” - SJ
