Julia and the Unexpecteds already have the indie lingo lined up.
"We don't want to find a record company," singer-songwriter-guitarist Julia Brochey says. "I don't want anybody to tell me what to do."
It's an independent spirit that shows through in their soon-to-be-released (Nov. 11) debut album, All I Want. The nine-track disc moves between tracks kaleidoscopically, shifting from sultry and soulful folk to ragtime-like jazz-funk.
"We've got it all," says Lucian Rowland, who plays various string instruments for the band.
The band even resists committing to its first interpretation or delivery of a song. When playing live, it updates each original composition with a fresh, unpredictable performance.
Although Rowland, Brochey and trumpet player Bruce Harris make up the core trio, percussionist Willie Koenig appears on the nine-track release, and bassist Richard Mikel can be seen at live gigs.
"When it comes down to the show, that's the "Unexpecteds' part," says Rowland. "Sometimes it changes with a venue. If we're at a bar, five people; if a coffee shop, it's maybe two."
This show at Stargazers with the Charlie Milo Trio will be broadcast live on local…
