The Deli Philly's Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner: Julia Rainer

Julia Rainer began her music career in a puppet band at the age of 10, and “after hours of listening to Hank Williams and Leonard Cohen,” taking what she absorbed, and fine-tuning her songwriting skills on earlier EPs, the burgeoning Philly singer-songwriter beautifully pieces together a lifetime of experiences and emotions into her deeply personal first LP, a release “about the people, places and things you carry around with you.” Admittedly, Rainer was kind of on our periphery before, but with Spirits (Creep Records), she totally has our attention, and deserves yours as well. Dig into her latest below, and take a moment to learn more about our Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner HERE.

Dig into her latest below, and take a moment to learn more about our Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner below.

The Deli: How did you start making music? 

Julia Rainer: The first song I ever wrote was part of a puppet band I was in when 10. After that, I started playing in human bands, and eventually sought to make music on my own, after hours of listening to Hank Williams and Leonard Cohen.

TD: What are your biggest musical influences?

JR: A need to retell and process my own experiences and the ability to fully do so solely through music-making is what influences me. As a guide for this practice, I look to artists like Neil Young, Etta James, Joni Mitchell, Nico, Aimee Mann, Cat Power, Jenny Lewis, and Mitski.

TD: What artists (local, national and/or international) are you currently listening to?

JR: Been really getting into HEAVN by Jamila Woods the last few weeks. Also, Pine Grove, Lady Lamb, the RENT soundtrack, and always Rilo Kiley.

TD: What's the first concert that you ever attended and first album that you ever bought?

JR: The first concert I ever attended was the late and great Tom Petty, at the E-Center in August of 1995. My dad took me! Pretty sure the first CD I bought with my own money was Floored by Sugar Ray… which is slightly embarrassing.

TD: What do you love about Philly?

JR: I love how it feels like a big small town. I’ve lived here pretty much my whole life, and it feels so much like home. But there is still so much of it I don’t know, or have yet to discover.

TD: What do you hate about Philly?

JR: Sometimes I lament the fact that I love it so much… Makes it hard to go anywhere else.

TD: What are your plans for 2018?

JR: To collaborate with artists and friends on music videos, to tour, to become more self-fulfilled, and to write another record.

TD: What was your most memorable live show?

JR: Performing my song "Can’t Survive” at only a few days sober for the other patients in rehab.

TD: What's your favorite thing to get at the deli?

JR: I’m a turkey girl, for sure. My favorite food is a Thanksgiving sandwich. It’s not a deli, but the “Stuffin Cranberry” at The Original Turkey in the Reading Terminal is my idea of heaven.

Weekend Warrior, November 10 - 12

We were surprised and saddened to hear that folk-pop outfit The Lawsuits are calling it quits this weekend due to “unforeseen circumstances”. We’ve had the opportunity to watch the band mature as musicians and songwriters, and are sure that Brian Dale Allen Strouse, Brendan Cunningham, Vanessa Winters, and Josh Friedman will continue to stay active and share their talents with the Philly music community in one way or another. They are a bunch of kind folks, and you can show them some love at their farewell performance this Saturday at Underground Arts. They’ll be surrounded by friendly faces and music pals Chris Kasper, Dirty Dollhouse, and Sun Parade. Join in the good vibes!

We also suggest for you to get out to Great How You’ve Been Fest this weekend, where you’ll find local up-and-comers like Julia Rainer, Gender Work, and Secret Nudist Friends. The three-day festival will be taking place at DIY spaces Tralfamadore, Slime Time Live, and The Woods. Good people will be opening up their homes to us so be respectful. – Alex G.

Lola Kirke brings her twangy pop to Baby’s All Right on 11.19

Lola Kirke is the daughter of Simon Kirke, an English drummer for the rock bands Bad Company and Free. Primarily known for her acting, (she had a role in David Fincher’s Gone Girl), Kirke has also turned her talents to music, and currently calls herself bicostal, split between LA and NYC. Her solid, self-titled EP dropped last year. It features her breathy and expressive vocals with a hint of country twang. Album closer "Not Used" is a highlight that feels like a classic and hearkens back to luminous figures in country: Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris. She’s definitely worth checking out at Baby’s All Right on November 19. –juan leon

Maura Lynch of Darlings drops solo release on 12.08

Blush is the new solo project of Brooklyn singer-songwriter Maura Lynch (previously keys and backing vocals in Darlings). With its distant, reverberated vocals, first single Daisy Chain (streaming below) seems to confirm Maura's preference for (beautiful) melodies that work around your ears, rather than in front of them. The tracks' sleepy attitude and plodding pace place it squarely in the dream pop niche - heck, even the lyrics are about dreams! According to Bandcamp, the full record will drop on December 8th, but we couldn't find a date for the release show.
