Derivative and inspired by Eliot Smith, Bob Dylan, Bon Iver, Ani DiFranco and Cat Power, singer/songwriter Julia Weldon says that others have told her (and she believes) that she “transcends several boxes with [her] music, songs, performance and stage presence.”

As an “extremely androgynous” woman in the industry, she explained that she luckily has not encountered a requirement to exploit her sexuality, but has felt subtle pressures. However, taking charge of her semblance allows her to be comfortable. “I find luckily that once anyone hears me play, they realize I don’t like being boxed in. […] I feel fortunate that my music does that work for me.”
