Julianna Riolino & Band (US/Canada)
A quick return for Canada/US outfit Julianna Riolino & Band
The young Toronto singer-songwriter Julianna Riolino channel’s cosmic country music with a modern twist & her nimble voice and her band’s dynamic playing make the results both golden and fluid.
Julianna Riolino knows how to capture and highlight beauty before it fades. On her debut LP, ‘All Blue,’ Riolino reflected on her own past, the memories of pain, healing, and love strewn through it. The songs focus on morality and the stretch of time, seeping naturally into Riolino’s Alt – Country & rootsy rock n roll leanings with even some straight-up power pop added for good measure. If the songs are diverse in sound, then the constant is the vocal power that Riolino brings to each track. Even on the bigger sounding numbers, songs driven by an urgent drum or an insistent guitar riff, the accompaniment is never allowed to outdo the voice. And, when you have a voice that good, it could hold its own without a microphone in a crowded bar.
 “I have no notes for Riolino except to say that she may have undersold herself with that title because All Blue is pure gold.’’ Dominionated magazine
