Hello Alex, my name is Julie Gower, Im @GowerJulie on twitter this is a tumbler I made over 2 years ago, so im guessing your the only one that will read this, which is better! Hope you will like what I have to say! It is all true.
I wanted to thank you for creating music. I have listened to your music over a decade now.
Since I was 14 I have listened to your music. When I bought your first album I always got my parents to play it in their car. Im surpised it still works, I remember when I was 15 my acting teacher years back asked me to sing at her birthday and it was far away so I had your the calling album in the car and i used it as my vocal warm up, my mum kept saying save your voice Julie lol.
I admire you for the professionalism and attitude that you have towards your career a great deal, you take it seriously and you refuse to bring out what I would call ‘manufactured’ pre paackaged, music. I thank you for that, thats why I admire you so much its extremly hard to find that in music, to me theres no good music around these days all manufactured. You don’t get songs like yours and won’t either because your very original, I just hope no artist will try to copy you as you stand out because of your own unique style that no one else has. You’re my favorite song writer of all time, haven’t came caross an artist that writes so much from the heart as you do. Your song writing skills are something else. Your vocals amaze me, your vocal range how you can sing so high then automatically drop down really low. Thats natural talent, you have very much been blessed im thankfull to your parents as without them the music world would not be what it is, it needs good music like yours! Of course you know your talented but just want you to know that I appreciate your music.
My music in Comparision to yours is embarrising, I enjoy it more than anything, but I cant sing or write like you do, however because of you, you inspired me to want to write a song and I have been writting away ever since then. For that Thank-You.
When I listen to your songs it motivates me to write a song or learn something new, learn more barr chords on your Songs etc, learn a new cover…
I love every one of your songs and of course heard them all. Your song our lives, never gets old its my message tone and Adreiene is my ringtone, such a powerfull song. Your song “things will go my way” honestly thank you for writing that song as lyrically it means a lot to me, and I did a cover of it on You Tube. Yourself and Michael Jackson are such a huge inspiration to me in my life honestly its actually hard to put into words but im trying lol. You have never been a sell out like so many end up in the music industry, you know what REAL music is and you have put nothing but your heart and soul into all that you do in your music career. And lets be honest Id give my right arm to have the talent that you have, even if you stoped creating music tomorrow I’d still supprt you in the exact same way and still listen to your songs. You were born to create music and you can see that you enjoy it a lot. Its good to enjoy something that your great at!
Your first band, the song Netherlands, still like hearing that song, my favorite one, I very much enjoyed the Stage it show, but hope to get to see you live one day. All the best to you in all that you do, now and in the future and remember that your a musical genious! Im not a crazed fan, just respect what you do and look up to you as what I aspire to be. In no way requesting you sing it but the song running away by crimson doves would fit your voice like a glove. Keep Rockin, Julie!
Great music and great melodies are immortal. I don’t care…you know, fashion change, culture changes, customs change…great music is immortal. We still listen to Mozart today…any of the greats. Great music is like a great piece of sculpture or a great painting. It’s forever. You know, for generations upon generations to appreciate forever. And that’s…I know that’s a fact.
I don’t wanna be just another can in the assembly line, you know? I want to, you know…create. Do something that’s totally different and unusual.
That’s what drives me. It’s the medium, it’s the art. I love it. And that’s the world I’m most comfortable in.
You can’t teach that, you can’t teach it. It has to come from inside. It’s a gift.
I don’t know if it’s the psychology whatever or what. I just love working hard on something, putting it together, sweating over it and sharing it with people and having them love it. And I always pray that they like it. And that’s what give me great satisfaction as an artist.
I’ve always love to dance. When I was just real little I used to watch Sammy Davis, Fred Astaire, James Brown…and just dancing about the house.
I feel it and I see it. I’m visionary. So, if I can give that, I do. And that’s what I love to do with music, with film, with dance.
See the thing is, artists seem to get in the way of the music. Get out of the way of the music. You know,…don’t write the music. Let the music write itself.
If I sat here and played some chords whatever and say ‘I’m gonna write the best song ever written’ nothing happens. Something in the heavens has to say ‘Look, this is the time, that this is gonna be laid on you and this is when I want you to have it.’
It’s innovating it and pioneering it. Taking the medium to a new place.
I like to take sounds and put them on the microscope and just talk about the way you wanna manipulate the character of it.
It’s hard to say how one creates music, because it’s hard for me to take credit. I feel it’s more spiritual or heavenly.
When I create my music I feel like an instrument of nature. I wonder what delight nature must feel when we open our hearts and express our God given talents.
