Julia Othmer's debut studio album "oasis motel" was recorded in Los Angeles with producer Michael Blum (Madonna, Roger Daltrey, Suicidal Tendencies). An amazing array of musicians joined her including Johnny Griparic (Carole King), Herman Jackson (Stevie Wonder, Outkast), Matt Laug (Alanis Morissette, Slashs Snakepit), and Dean Pleasants (Suicidal Tendencies, Infectious Grooves).
She has a voice that can only be described as "Macy Gray meets Alicia Keys with a dash of Alanis Morissette," says Ear Candy Magazine. The NXNE Festival Guide calls her "a piano-playing siren making a mark with her fiery, passionate performances." "Oasis Motel is remarkable for several reasons - the most obvious being that it's hard to believe this is her first release," said music critic Brandon Whitehead for eKC online. "With ten original tracks of clear, crystalline vocals that evoke melodic sounds reminiscent of Patsy Kline to Anne De Franco [sic], Othmer shows how music is meant to be made."
Though recently relocated to West Hollywood, Julia has garnered a fast growing fan base from her other homebases in Philadelphia and Kansas City. She has performed at such venues as Philadelphia's World Café Live, WXPN's All About the Music Festival, the TLA, and the Tin Angel; New York City's Knitting Factory, Cutting Room and the Bitter End; and LA's Hotel Café. Julia was recently nominated at the Philly Music Awards for "Best Female Entertainer" and "Best Female Vocalist. She has shared the stage with a range of artists including Amos Lee, Regina Spektor, Ryan Star, John Waite, and eastmountainsouth.
Othmer is currently working on her follow-up to "oasis motel." She will be seen this summer on the Lilith Fair tour!
