Welcome to the New Year, from Julie Doiron and You’ve Changed Records!
As so many of us are in various stages of separation and isolation, and with the dream of a return of live music and communal experience postponed again, we want to share some recordings from Julie’s album release show at the Horseshoe Tavern in December. Julie was joined by Dany Placard on bass and vocals, Daniel Romano on lead guitar, and Ian Romano on drums.
This was a beautiful, truly special show, that happened in the small window of optimism and opening this past fall, before new variants and bad governance led us back into darkness….
