Razor Harp - Dark Fairy Tales From Julia Mascetti, A British Harpist Living In Japan



New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Julia Mascetti, having relocated from the UK to Japan, has brought the traditional folk of her homeland and allowed the influences of her new surroundings seep in. The result is a beguiling, haunting experience, featuring Julia, her harp and traditional Japanese sounds floating in and around her siren-like voice.

The EP is centred not just around her own feelings of being far away from a familiar land but of loss, disillusion and memories, which is evoked through delicate, spidery vignettes which evolve like dark fairy tales. There's a Lynchian/Waitsian atmosphere which hints at sadness and loss but which balances this with a feeling that it is far more of a warning than a threat.

Julia has an arsenal of impressive musical instruments, from the traditional, towering six-foot harp; a smaller folk harp; to a small purple harp she has used when playing alongside metal bands - a true indicator that Julia is constantly looking to surprise and intrigue her audience. As well as being a freelance harpist, Julia is also a highly regarded blogger, reporting on expat life for women living in Tokyo.

"In Distance, Everything is Poetry" is a perfect introduction to a unique sound and a magical approach to storytelling through folk music from two very different cultural traditions.
