Julie Delgado has been singing all of her life, starting at a young age as a member of a church and school choir, then entering the realm of musical theatre. Julie has performed in stage musicals including Man of La Mancha, Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, The Wiz, Scrooge, Guys & Dolls, as well as at civic light operas in the Los Angeles, her native city. Julie was honored to sing our National Anthem for California Angels, Los Angeles Dodgers, the Disney Spectacular at the Hollywood Bowl, and the Rose Bowl in Pasadena for the Los Angeles Galaxy soccer team.
Julie and her husband, Manuel Delgado, decided to move their business, Delgado Guitars, from Los Angeles to Nashville, and the move has provided many opportunities for Julie to write and perform with other songwriters, musicians, and singers in the Nashville community.
Julie plays regularly at Nashville’s top venues in songwriter rounds and is proud to be a long time member of NSAI and SGA. Most recently, Julie has been performing Latin music as part of the the group, Los Delgados.
Runner of the Woods frontman Nicolas Beaudoing previously led NYC’s Cajun honky-tonkers, the Doc Marshalls. Over the course of three releases, the band evolved from Bakersfield shuffles and Acadian barnburners to jagged, glimmering folk. The pedal steel was still king, but the band massages the music through a low-watt amp with a brash fuzz tone. The musical millieu is familliar... only...different.
