Julia Bullock's solo recording debut, Walking in the Dark, was nominated for a BBC Music Magazine Award earlier this week, and is up for the Grammy Award for Best Classical Solo Vocal Album. On the album, Bullock and the Philharmonia Orchestra, conducted by Christian Reif, perform Samuel Barber’s Knoxville: Summer of 1915 and a song from John Adams’s El Niño. She is joined by Reif, on piano, for a traditional spiritual and songs by Oscar Brown, Jr., Billy Taylor, Sandy Denny, and Connie Converse. Bullock is “one of the singular artists of her generation,” says the New York Times, “a singer of enveloping tone, startlingly mature presence and unusually sophisticated insight into culture, society and history.” You can get it and hear it here.
