Buffalo, NY native Julie Byrne brings her 2017 second studio album Not Even Happiness, and fondness for slowing down and noticing her surroundings in a hectic world, to Toronto and The Great Hall.

“Julie Byrne doesn’t sing her ice-crusted songs so much as murmur them beneath her breath. And ‘finger-picking,’ while accurate, feels far too percussive a word for her guitar playing; it’s more like she brushes the strings with her fingertips, like wisps of hair obscuring her vision. Live clips show Byrne performing to reverent groups of three or four in cafes, where she barely rises above the sound of milk steamers and muffled coughing. Her album, Rooms With Walls & Windows, feels like a secret she’s keeping from you, even when it is safely in your headphones.” — Jason Greene/ Pitchfork
