CMA Fest 2017 Julia Neville Interview
Julia Neville talks about Survivor EP
By Charlie Kriak on July 25th, 2017
Julia Neville has been making great strides in her country singing career since 2015 when she traveled to Nashville and recorded her single, “Six Strings are Hard on Diamond Rings.” The song was met with great reviews and helped to earn her the “Young Country Single of the Year Award” from the NTCMA (National Traditional Country Music Association). Since then the Logan, Ohio based singer has performed in Nashville at such legendary clubs as Tootsie’s, The Full Moon Saloon, Nashville Palace and many more.
The singer has heartfelt stories to share about her own life and uses her music to relay the sentiments to her fans. Earlier this year she released her first EP, Survivor. The five-song collection shows off an eclectic mix of music from Neville on songs that deliver the message of not succumbing to the bad things that can happen in someone’s life.
We had a chance to talk to Neville about the new release and some of the stuff that inspires her to make the music she does.

“LOGAN — A local singer is celebrating the release of her CD after years of dreaming and dedication.

That was the first moment that I realized that I could encourage and move people with my voice.” From that moment on, Neville’s goal in life was to continue to perform, and so she did in musicals, choirs, and any other opportunity she could find. Eventually she would be awarded a $16,000 scholarship at Ashland University for her singing skills, however the school wanted her to primarily perform opera style music, which she did not enjoy,
RECORD REVIEW BY BOB EVERHART - WWW.NTCMA.NET, JULIA NEVILLE - SIX STRINGS ARE HARD ON DIAMOND RINGS (MAY 01, 2015)
“This is a 'single' song CD, extremely handy for DJ distribution, sent to me by Allen Karl, one of our very best classic country performing artists that comes to LeMars. He's also the CEO of Century II Records in Nashville. Donna Cunningham, Executive director of Artist Development for Century II, discovered this incredibly gifted young woman at the Southern Ohio Opry in Lucasville, Ohio. This particularly well written song, a good 'story' song about being a musician, the demands of trying to earn a living doing that, and being in love, and being married, and being, yes BEING one of the many music makers, perhaps God's most underpaid servants, tells it like it is. Extremely well written song, but it's Julia's voice that 'sells' the song. It always takes two to tango, and music-maker Julia does the dance beautifully with Jason Deere who wrote the song. This lovely girl has a hard ladder to climb, she already knows that, but I would suggest that Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood,”
