"Once, Or Twice is a lush, rich record full of beautiful, haunting music, sung by a voice that’s all at once pure, flexible, and expressive. [Julia] draws the listener in with warm, deeply personal songcraft, but at the same time stays enigmatic, revealing something new upon each listen... Decades ago, Joni Mitchell made waves across the landscape of music with her haunting songcraft, and became an icon of the singer/songwriter genre. If there is any good in the world, Julia Barry will find the same success...she has certainly earned it."
"Her talent for writing poetic and haunting...lyrics will be her calling card."

"The smooth sounds of her jazz should be heard from coast to coast...Barry does a great job of story-telling, accompanied by brilliant piano."
"Have you seen a virtuoso piano player recently? How about a virtuoso pianist with the voice of an angel and the passion and fury of 10 mountain lions? Okay, maybe not that extreme, but Julia Barry is about as close as they come."
"With a great portion of blues & jazz, pianist and songwriter Julia Barry is our SoundClouder Of The Day. Hopefully you're enjoying this as much as we are right now at SoundCloud HQ."
