JULIA AUTUM FORD

JULIA AUTUM FORD

You’ve are a nominee for “Best New Band” at the Connecticut Music Awards.  In one sentence, what is your reaction to that?

 

Fuck yeah, Bitches!

 

How long has your band been together?  (If you are a single artist, how long have you been working as a musician?)

 

Since I wrote my first song called “Potty Potty No No” when I was 2.

 

What’s your latest release and what do you want folks to know about it?

 

I’m actually releasing the greatest EP ever in a few months which is being produced by Tracy Walton, the greatest person ever. It should be pretty great.

 

What’s in store for you for the next year?

 

Music, videos, a tour starting in October, I might grow the other side of my hair out.

 

CTMA’s has a Red Carpet?  What will you be wearing?

 

I will be changing the answer to this question until the second I walk out the door on June 10.

Lisa Sanchez Gonzalez – lsg Original

Lover of music and the visual arts, Lisa Sanchez Gonzalez is the insanity behind lsg original photography. lsg specializes in artist and performer photography. She’s had the honor of photographing national bands such as Weezer, Snoop Dogg, A Simple Plan, Paramore, Whitesnake, Wye Oak, and The Antlers along with countless local bands and performers.

Hailing from Hartford, CT, Lisa is a life- long music connoisseur. Growing up, her mother exposed her to everything from The Stones to Simon and Garfunkel to Earth, Wind, and Fire to Loretta Lynn…and everything in between. No genre was left unexplored in her vinyl collection. She saw her first concert at 14…Rod Stewart at the (then called) Hartford Civic Center. Thirty years later, it’s still her favorite pastime.

Lisa has two kids (grown!) and a day job. Her loves of music and photography have melded into a second career. And her love of CT keeps her promoting and pushing for local artists and performers. Lisa spends the greater part of her free time seeing and shooting live bands, performers, and artists and art work…and purchasing vinyl!
