  • BLUE PONY, Miller's debut record on Hightone (her previous effort was on a small, Christian-oriented label) places her as a kind of quirky alternative-Americana artist. Think of a rootsy Victoria Williams, whose voice Miller often brings to mind. As if to purposely move past the "country" label, BLUE PONY starts off strong with a rocker, "A Kiss On the Lips," with its understated energy and Hammond B-3 backing. The next song "Take Me Back," is a high lonesome duet with Julie's husband and co-producer, Hightone recording artist Buddy Miller. It recalls the kind of Appalachian folk songs that lie at the roots of commercial country music.
  • While BLUE PONY does feature guest appearances by some big names (both Emmylou Harris and Steve Earle contribute their talents), the real star here is Miller's voice, a slightly helium-laced affair that you'll either find completely irresistible or somewhat annoying. What makes her singing remarkable, though, is her ability to suggest girlish innocence while singing about a deep kind of evil.
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (4/25/97, p.72) - "...arrives on her alt-folk-rock debut armed with dark, poetic lyrics about betrayal, redemption, and the damage caused by long-held secrets....One of the year's most haunting surprises."
