Tonight is a special night in our family's life and in home in Franklin. Lynn's daughter, Julia Damore is performing as a new artist in the music world here in Music City, USA now as a professional. As one of the rising stars in Nashville, Julia has spent her entire life preparing for this very moment to step into the world of music professionally.
Like an Olympian who trains for a lifetime for the ultimate race, she begins her new journey in music. Soon, you will see more about her on SPOTIFY and ITUNES. You can learn more about her at julia.damore.com and experience her talent first hand.
So what did it take to get here for this amazing talented new artist? A lifetime of work is the answer.
Julia focused on her craft from the time she was a child. She was in productions at Bravo, involved in middle school and high school singing in chorus, in musicals and vocal contests. She later became the choir president at Franklin, High School and began to focus on musical presence in her youth. Getting a scholarship in music at Lipscomb, she was selected by an all college choir to be one of three soloists.
On the national level, she won at NATS third place for her amazing vocal talent and became nationally recognized early on. After an opera and classical training background in her first two years in college, she studied in Vienna. Then, she flew to NYC to meet with casting directors on Broadway and also Juliard School of Music considering her future options.
Belmont University quickly became the next musical focus and she transferred into commercial music for her remaining under graduate years where she could also have more of a variety background. Quickly rising as one of the lead talents, Julia began to visualize a future in professional music.
Getting married in January of 2017 was a landmark with her wonderful husband, Brandon Damore who is a barista at Golden Sound in Nashville. He is an artist, vocalist, guitarist and an audio engineer in his own right graduating from Belmont's prominent sound engineering school with a B.S. in Audio Engineering Technology. The talented couple had become a real first family in music in our home and have been working together on this new project, AN EVENING WITH JULIA DAMORE.
At the country club this evening, Julia will be performing her first three song demo ever as a professional recording artist. She has invested thousands in getting to this place and tonight launches her entire career performing. Continuing to invest in other vocal students, she is practicing and performing all the time. A sacrifice is truly involved in being a committed musical artist.
Having this special event, her goal is to fund raise for an album project which will be expensive, but worth performing. People are being asked to contribute to her dream and they will! She has a CD of her new three songs with one original song created for her entitled Time Waits. Stephanie Musser and I wrote this song dedicating the piece to our mother's have prematurely gone to heaven.
You can't just "wing it" when you are an artist in the competitive field of music and being an author is exactly the same story.
If you have a dream to be involved in film, you have to sacrifice, invest, being disciplined to connect and network with the right people and it takes years to prepare. Julia has an amazing accompanist in Stephanie Musser who has traveled from Oklahoma to join our family and we are so thankful for her involvement in Julia's life too.
A team gathers when an author desires to move from one place to a higher place. Can you imagine being Tom Clancy, Stephen King or J. R. Rowling and having a dream to be in film too, but the goal seems almost unreachable? Ms. Rowling barely had enough money to survive before HARRY POTTER. The process is never fast, but always worth the journey.
So if you are an author, let us know if you would desire to have your book reviewed for the purpose of transitioning your book to film. It is our honor at the Filmmaker's Roundtable to be a part of your journey and we take every author seriously. We pledge to read carefully every word through our team of professionals and bring solid advice on the process you will need to be most successful.
Congratulations Julia and thank you for being a great example of working hard to achieve your goals, investing in your future and believing when the times get rough and believe me, they will get stormy. Remember it will not always be easy to reach your dream, there will be supernatural attacks which can come against you, but don't be discouraged as you can rise above any obstacle with God's help.
We honor you on this special occasion and are praying for your success in every way. To the entire team, family and host of people surrounding you, we thank you. Johnny Hodges for your musical direction, Javier Solis for helping us find the right studios and for all of the "dedicated" music people believing in your future, we salute you too.
Excited about the future,
