JGM Pick of the Week: October 22, 2018

Juliana Schnee
(release date: October 5, 2018)
Available on iTunes

By Bob Marovich

With her soaring tones accented by endearing yodels, twenty-two-year-old singer Juliana Schnee sounds like a young LeAnn Rimes.

Her inspirational song “Blue” is made all the more effective by the understated small jazz combo and strings that accompany her winsome urging to not let life get you down.  “Blue” blends jazz and inspirational lyrics in a way that dignifies both.

A self-described lover of “Jesus and Jazz,” Schnee is from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. As a child, she taught herself to play piano and ukulele and wrote her first song at eleven years old. Her debut album, Dance in the Rain, came out when she was sixteen. She has amassed several singing awards over the years and is currently at work on an EP, VANITY.
