Singer-songwriter Julie Mar is looking to bring a new outlook to pop music, one song at a time. She started both playing music and writing early in her childhood, and she currently builds her songs around lyrics. Mar’s words are simple and direct, their primary concern being to reach out to the listener. Her debut album, Theorem (due out April 2), explores universal topics like love, faith, and loss, with a very personal and reassuring approach. A release party for Theorem will be held at The Bitter End in Manhattan on April 4.
