NEW EP from

Julie & the Wayves


Turn your face to the sun  

Turn your back on the shadows spun

Turn from fear of the other one  

Turn to hope for everyone


Julie & the Wayves



Julie & The Wayves is a 5-piece, progressive bluegrass band, based out of Portland, Oregon.  Centered around the songwriting of Julie Schmidt, a confluence of hard-driving bluegrass and masterful composition and arrangement sensibilities delivers a sound that is both powerful and elegant. Timeless tones within a modern, artful structure, that incorporates genre-bending subtleties without sacrificing what their instrumentation suggests they are: a bluegrass band.
