In her Inspirational and Christian songs, Julie Lindemuth moves easily from humor and simple lessons of life and relationships to the weighty topics of faith and hope. A breast cancer diagnosis and life-long struggle with endometriosis have given her much of the raw material for her writing. These battles have given her empathy, compassion, and a sturdy and unmovable faith in her Savior.
Julie grew up singing in a small town in Northwestern Pennsylvania. Her years of experience in acappella choirs is why she’s just as comfortable singing or whistling a tune with or without her guitar. Her numerous musical influences include listening to big band records and watching Lawrence Welk with her parents; hard rock, pop and Christian bands of the 1980s with friends; 50s, 60s, and 70s rock and blues with her older brothers; and learning English madrigals and sacred tunes for choral performances, and classical and pop pieces for orchestra and band.
When Julie was a Music Marketing major, she had aspirations of being a talent agent, or perhaps an entertainment lawyer. After experiencing a friend’s tragic death, her dreams were shrouded. Her faith in God and confidence in her abilities were shaken. After she graduated with her Music Marketing degree, she was introduced to Guided Imagery through Music, a type of therapy that helped her to process her trauma. She pursued a second degree in Music Therapy and along the way re-learned the healing power of songwriting.
She approaches life with a light touch and sense of humor. She's not afraid to be vulnerable with her heart and it shows through both her lyrics and performances. Her vocal delivery has been called “crystalline pure”, “soothing” and compared to Kathy Mattea and her on- and off-stage presence “calming” and “peaceful”.
Her inspirational program “Catch a Falling Dream” weaves stories together with her faith-based songs to take listeners on a journey through her life.
She also sings cover tunes for eldercare audiences, taking them on a “Sentimental Journey” from the 1920s to the 1960s. In performing for eldercare concerts and leading therapeutic sing-alongs, she has shared music with hundreds of groups of older adults in independent living, assisted living, rehab, and dementia care facilities.
She has lived in Missouri since 2010 and currently makes her home in Saint Charles with her husband Clayton and their 11-year old rescue pup, Faith.
