All Blue: Vinyl LPLPYC059
Pre-Order Item. Release Date Subject to Change.
Label: You've Changed Records
Release Date: 14th October
At once a honky tonk heartbreak, with a tangy guitar, the yearn of slide guitar and then the next a power pop glam stomp but then onto a piano ballad that escalates into some rock n roll boogie. It's a celebration of great Americana pop, folk and rock n roll.
For those who dig: Daniel Romano (he plays on this and she's part of the band), Carson McHone, Charlotte Cornfield and I guess the Judee Sill homage as a cover will catch eyes.
ALL BLUE is the debut solo album by Julianna Riolino, the white-hot- lunged vocalist best known for her increasingly prominent role as a member of Daniel Romano's Outfit, including a star turn on lead vocals on the 2021 hit - The Motions - and where she displays a nightly mastery of the stage
On All Blue she displays a rare ability to re- envision the warmest strands of musical sepia and put her own individualist stamp on them, mixing a hefty dose of wit and wordplay into pitch- perfect representations of classic Americana tropes, sung in a powerful and unique voice, rich in character and attitude.Julianna Riolino knows how to capture and highlight beauty before it fades. She spent her days running up to the recording of her solo debut helping restore the stained- glass windows at St. Michael's Cathedral in Toronto. Surrounded by symbols configured in bits of 19th century French glass, Riolino couldn't help but reflect on her own past and the memories of pains, healing, and love strewn through it. It made me think about life as a balancing act, and we're all just trying to do our best to navigate it, she says. That focus on morality and the stretch of time seeped naturally into Riolino's songwriting, resulting in the golden, fluid All Blue: If I was a painter, this would be my blue period, she says. I'm looking at my life, all my decisions lined up, and either atoning for them or laughing them off.
