Julie Rhodes will play three SXSW showcases as she is earning incredible reviews, comparisons to some all-time great likes Etta James, and predictions of a long career and a rapid rise:

Thursday – Stiles Switch BBQ – 6pm - 6610 N Lamar Blvd.
Thursday – Love Goat – 7:30pm - 2716 Guadalupe St.
Saturday - Goorin’ Bros Hat Shop – 4pm - 1323 S Congress Ave.

In addition to spotlights in Paste Magazine, the Boston Herald, Elmore, The Bluegrass Situation, SIRIUS XM and bookings on radio shows Music City Roots, Blue Plate Special, and Beale Street Caravan, ‘Bound to Meet the Devil’ is earning raves:

Pop Matters ran a Q&A, a track premiere, and a 9-star review, saying “Exhibiting a combination of talent, soul, and grit often unmatched by debuting artists, Julie Rhodes seems poised to become a mainstay in the Americana blues music scene for years to come.”

American Songwriter said that she is "the real deal," continuing, "this is just the promising start of a career”: https://americansongwriter.com/2016/02/julie-rhodes/

No Depression called her show a “powerful performance,” continuing, “The magic that poured from the stage was intense and incredible!”

Downbeat called her "a natural talent."

The Knoxville News-Sentinel compared her to Etta James and said, “Julie Rhodes is a rare find… Rhodes’ songs are strong… There's an ease and confidence to her vocal style. She doesn't need to show off by screaming and shouting or, worst of all, proving her range and technique on every song… Rhodes is the kind of performer modern music is lacking.”

Glide Mag said, “Her voice, though uniquely her own, can best be described as the love child of Janis Joplin, Adele and Etta James. The entire set was nothing short of evangelical.”

Her hometown blog Vanyland said, “There’s a lady who’s causing a stir with a voice that wails and can take over a room in a split-second… Get down with what will be one of the best albums to come out of New England in 2016 and enjoy.”
