"A legacy in the making.”
Song Premiere: "Collector Man"
- Paste Magazine
“The arrival of a significant new Americana/blues talent.”
“There aren’t many unknown artists who get to record their debut albums partially at Muscle Shoals’ Fame Studios with legends such as keyboardist Spooner Oldham, guitarist Greg Leisz and fiddler Sara Watkins sitting in. But, there aren’t many new singers as impressive as Julie Rhodes either.”
“Part of 'Bound to Meet the Devil's' charms come from the production and the players, but Rhodes' songwriting completes the spell. Her songs seem to rise from the ghosts of '50s blues and '60s soul greats."
“On the cusp of a meteoric rise in the songwriter community, Julie Rhodes is a powerhouse vocalist with authentic soul, grounded both in the songwriting traditions of yesterday’s Americana and today’s very present social and political issues.”

Song Premiere: "Faith"
“There’s not a throwaway in the 10 listed songs and one hidden track. “Collector Man” and “Skyscraper Blues” seem especially mature, both tracks getting airtime on various Sirius/XM channels.

"Sometimes you hear a voice and you immediately sit up and take notice. That’s what happened when I first listened to Julie Rhodes, her vocals big, soulful and growling through the speakers in a dark powerhouse sass that suits her Americana sound perfectly..."
- For the Country Record
"The ease with which she soulfully sings us through her heartbreak, and subsequent anger, is exceptional. The blend of country, soul, blues, and folk is effortless on this record. Rhodes’ uncompromising vocals, paired along with the sharp lyricism, leave me shattered in the best possible way."
