LYNN 'JULIAN' AKA
Cookie 'Cutter' Girl
NORTH EAST IN TUNE INTERVIEW
by Bob Donovan
Lynn 'Julian' is a woman with a mission. A
hard working, dedicated, very talented singer, songwriter and musician out
to show the world that women can do it on their own in this big, bad, male
dominated music industry. As a strong supporter of Women in Music myself,
I can totally understand what she is doing. To some, her music might not be
“metal enough” or doesn’t fit into the mold of the current
trend; some may think she is too commercial or flamboyant. However, no matter
what you may think about her music, you have to give her credit for her ambition,
dedication, and the guts to carve her own path rather than following the trendy
flow of what is or isn’t “cool.”
Yea, maybe she pushes the line or the limit on some things and maybe she is a bit flamboyant, but the fact remains, she has the spirit and guts to do what she has to do to be visible and not forgotten. These are qualities of success whether you believe in them or not. It’s obviously working for Lynn “Julian” as her music can be heard on over 500 TV and Radio stations! So all you who think what she is doing won’t work, stop and count the station your music is heard on; the number of gigs you’ve gotten; how much press you are receiving. Than, at that point, you may start to realize Lynn “Julian” is on a successful mission and won’t stop fighting until she has accomplished her goal. This is total dedication, commitment and a belief in oneself that is strong enough to make those dreams and goals an actual reality.
Lynn has developed her own sound, image and creative outlook
and taken it to the max and run with it. No hesitation, “what ifs”
or “I wonder what others will think.” She has just taken control
and gone for it and the path she blazes is wide and will not end
until she wants it to do so.
She has developed a “superhero” image for women in the industry and combines comedy and serious hard work and writing to develop a storyline for success. She is currently incorporating this storyline into a comic book that will be heavily marketed as well. Whether you see or hear Lynn “Julian” you won’t forget her and the alter ego
she has developed as the Cookie “Cutter” Girl.” Lynn “Julian’s” music is “Girl Power with a PUNCH” pop/rock with fun and enjoyable lyrics. Her songs are well written, structured and produced. Her talent is obvious with each and every song.
Julian has received rave reviews and great write-ups in on-line and print media/press throughout the Northeast and beyond. She has earned the respect of many industry folk as well.

Lynn 'Julian': Vocals, Rhythm Guitar
Peter Doubt: Vocals, Lead Guitar

Not only has Lynn “Julian” worked hard to fight through the male dominated music industry with her music, she has taken complete control with her own label “Cookie Cutter Records” and music publishing company “Cookie Cutter Publishing.”
