Pictures from “Awaken Me” CD release concert

A heartfelt ‘thank you’ to everyone who came out to my concert Friday. I was surrounded by richness on every side from the musicians who worked with me, to every member of the audience, to every volunteer serving behind-the-scenes. You are beautiful people! I was literally bursting with my new song, “Psalm 45,” which has become my anthem for 2012 and 2013. Be looking for a fuller studio version in the coming months. I believe the urgency I’ve been feeling to do this song is for “such a time as this.” Read More...

Rehearsal footage for Friday’s concert

Preparations have been well under way for my concert this Friday night (November 16th). I am literally ready to burst with these new songs! A few of them are on my new Awaken Me album, and the rest will be released in early 2013. I’m bringing in a dear friend of mine for this concert, flutist Angela Kelly, who will be playing on Fire in the Night, a new song that premiered earlier this year. Also, we have a mystery tenor arriving Thursday evening just in time for our dress rehearsal! Enjoy this rehearsal footage… You’ll see some familiar faces, as well as some new. Come on out this Friday night, 8pm at Christ Community Church.

Awaken Me: new release

Awaken Me, new Christian praise-worship music from Julie Bernstein

I’m getting close to the release date (surprise!) of my first devotional / worship album in response to a request that was made while I was recording my next studio album. Most of the tracks / songs on this devotional album come from time spent at my piano singing through the psalms or other portions of scripture, not setting out to ‘write’ or ‘craft’ a song … just singing through the scriptures. And this album portrays literally that: me at my piano singing as unto the Lord. This album is perfect for a personal devotional time, or for meditating on the scriptures being sung. There will be a limited number of these CD’s available at the Women’s Conference this weekend (November 9th & 10th) and also at my concert on November 16th. (But these concerts will surely NOT be unplugged!)

CDs available at the upcoming live events, iTunes / Amazon online release dates to be announced shortly.

November 16th, 2012 Concert

I would like to invite you all to my next concert, Friday November 16th, 8:00 at Christ Community Church in Charlottesville. I know it has been a while since my last concert, but I have been hard at work on plenty of new material. I will be sharing several of my new songs along with some favorites. Limited preview CDs of my new unplugged album will be available also.

Looking forward to seeing you all there!
