Julia Othmer is an award-winning singer/songwriter who has performed internationally for the last ten years. She appeared on the 2010 Lilith Fair tour alongside Sarah McLachlan, Emmylou Harris, Heart, Courtyard Hounds, Ingrid Michaelson and others. Music from her 2006 album Oasis Motel can be found on shows such as The Lying Game, Army Wives, Party of Five, and DeGrassi: The Next Generation. Othmer has won numerous awards for her songwriting, including several Honorable Mentions at the Billboard World Song Contest, Semifinalist at the International Songwriting Competition, and Runner-Up at the 2006 Singer/Songwriter Awards. Her follow-up album is being recorded in Stockholm and Los Angeles and due for release in late 2013.
Originally from Kansas City, Othmer is now based in Los Angeles and will be accompanied by LA's Erik Eldenius on drums (Billy Idol, LeAnn Rimes), Johnny Griparic on bass (Slash's Snakepit, Carole King), and John Schreffler, Jr. on guitar (Gin Wigmore, Shooter Jennings).
Broken Bravado started as a song writing project by John Schreffler Jr, lead guitarist for Shooter Jennings and Hierophant, in March of 2010. John's good friend, Andrew Covell, had the idea to paint a painting each day for thirty days straight and suggested to John that he do the same with songs; a song a day for thirty days. So a song was written and recorded each day between March 1st and March 30th. Some of those tracks were made more complete with the addition of drums and further sonic layers. Most of the sounds on the tracks, including most of the lead vocals, were recorded on the day the song was written. Broken Bravado is hoping to release some of the tracks later this year.
