At eight years old, Julie Nolen knew she wanted to be a hell raiser living amongst the hippies and the freaks of Austin, Texas. She got there as soon as she could.
Nolen, an Americana-rock-country-ass-kicking troubadur who is known for her energetic and exciting performances, has been playing in Austin for over ten years, focusing not only with solo shows but also with her band. She regularly plays rooms such as the Saxon Pub, Lambert's and One2One Bar.
Having her soul rooted in West Texas, Nolen knows how to write a good story. Writing songs of loves won and lost, betrayals and triumphs, (sometimes with a sense of humor) comes second nature to her, much like the memorable melodies that help support those stories.
With the ambitious task of releasing two albums in one year, Nolen first captured her energetic sound onto disc after releasing her first solo demo album, "Raise Hell" in February 2015. Her full length studio album “Songs of Dignity and Grit”, was released in January 2016.
