My Exit: Julia Lee

Tonight's My Exit D.J., Julia Lee

Every Monday night our friends at WEXT do this thing called My Exit -- local listeners get to come into the station and program an hour of music. So we thought it'd be fun to find out a little bit about these people and why they picked the songs on their play list.

Here's tonight's person:

Who?
I'm Julia Lee.
I'm from Ohio, but I moved to Troy last year to attend graduate school at UAlbany.

How would you describe your musical taste?

I am definitely a mood-dependent listener. I rarely say I have favorites because I enjoy so many different types of music for so many different reasons. At the most basic level, I enjoy music that feels honest.

Three songs from Julia's show:

Collete by Langhorne Slim. Langhorne Slim truly enjoys making music and sharing it unabashedly. I had a chance to go to one of his shows and speak with him afterward. He has a kind soul.

We're all looking for Astronauts by The National.
I am in love with the lead singer's voice. It is unique and touching.

Autonomy by Heartless Bastards.
They were a local band from Ohio whose shows I used to go to all the time. Now, they're getting more national recognition and I couldn't be happier for them. They deserve it.

You can hear Julia's My Exit show tonight at 8 at 97.7 or at exit977.org.

Here's how to schedule your own My Exit show on WEXT.

My boyfriend put up a whiteboard in our shower (thinking he could get his ideas down while in the shower)- however the steam allows about 20 seconds of writing time- so now its more of a love note board- I love pulling back the shower curtain and seeing a cute drawing and note!
