5. MUSIC: Julia Weldon, Light Is A Ghost
New York-based singer-songwriter Julia Weldon might be the most soulful singer you've never heard of. The 30-year-old New Jersey native has been making East Coast audiences swoon for more than a decade with her heartfelt lyrics, and aching, tender voice. Weldon's sophomore album, Light Is a Ghost, debuts Friday with a release party at Brooklyn's legendary Knitting Factory. Light Is a Ghost reveals a tender, multitalented out artist with impressive depth as she's backed up on 12 tracks by a full band. The album's digital release is scheduled for August 20, according to Weldon's website.
