Five Challenges to Flight
- Artist: Julia Francis
- Format: CD
- Release Date:8/23/2005
Driving rock confessions, country-infused lullabies, and inspirational folk anthems deliver a diverse cast of characters in 'Five Challenges to Flight; the seductress in 'Metropolitan' lives in harmonious contrast with the hopeful child in 'Seal Baby'. The songs here are lush and warm, supported by strings, piano, Hammond B3, Wurlitzer, guitars, celeste, clarinet, flute, trombone, and of course, the ocean. Julia Francis' voice will most likely sound familiar to you, but you'll have a hard time thinking of anyone she sounds like: she's an original. Well respected for her live performances, Julia's flirtatious, heartbreaking and bold storytelling is well represented on this, her first of many records.
