WOMEN IN MUSIC ARTIST SPOTLIGHT
Lynn “Julian” AKA Cookie “Cutter” Girl
(Augusta, ME & Ipswich , MA)
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. Lynn 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’s” Band Is:

Lynn 'JULIAN' a,k.a. Cookie Cutter Girl
"Girl Power Pop Super Hero on over
500 TV & RADIO STATIONS!"
"Now, *this* girl can SING!"
"One of a kind... Made for TV...
COOKIE CUTTER GIRL!
Unusual and complex... bold and individual, your songs tackle subjects that we (women) are all aware of, but perhaps don't want
to discuss ... YOU can be our voice instead! I could imagine some other current, popular female acts covering "Jenny" too, (Liz Phair, The Donnas), since it tells a controversial, yet engaging story!"
"Once the disc was in, I couldn't
take it out.
This artist has what it takes and then some! It's only a matter of time before this girl breaks into the majors. GREAT STUFF!"
"I feel privileged to promote
you and thank you for entrusting
your vision to me. I am compelled to do all that I can to get you where I feel you belong and will exhaust all possibilities of my 'resource world!' YOU have a dream... close to becoming a reality!"
Marlee Garza, RADIO DISNEY
I'm a fan! I rarely gush at the artists
who cross my path...
but, I love your music, I love your look and You ROCK!
Phil Peretz, President/Founder, Indie Artists Alliance
There should be more girls out there
with ROCK and
GIRL POWER. We rock chicks have to stick together!
"I like your tracks a lot...
They have GREAT COMMERCIAL POTENTIAL!"
Jerry Bader, Massive Record Productions
"I found your material
and voice quite unique and
commercial sounding." Brian, SongCatalog.com
"Hey Cookie Cutter Girl... Very, very
I seldom write someone after getting his or her CD
but this is definitely original and Tres cool! Let us know
when the full CD's done... very interested in checking it out!"
Stay in touch, Paul Woodfin Face Magazine, FACEMAG.COM
"The "Terminal Diner"
theme song you wrote for us
is so WAAAAY COOL! Don't get a swelled head, or your hats
won't fit, but go ahead and stand tall, 'cause it's a swell song.
You have an awesome voice and it's very danceable too, which is just great! We're organizing a launch party for the CD single,
Video and commercial..." Sonic Comics, SONICPUBLISHING
"You've got a nice touch of madness
I like that in a girl... Great CD! "Stalker" cracks me up.
The mad glee of the protagonist. . . she ain't doin' nothin' wrong. .Rock On!" Dave Isaac, WKIT Bangor

girl makes it big!"
"'Get the Picture' is a GREAT
I'm overnighting it to one of our clients.

"Received your pictures and both
my wife and I were
VERY impressed. She actually commented that you were "hot," which made me feel a little uncomfortable - *sigh* She's right, you'll be very easy to translate into comic mode. You look a LOT like how DC comics has been drawing Wonder Woman over the last few years." Reece Friesen, AspireComicBookArt.com
"Just really good songs with strong stories and genuine lyricism. Turnin Blue a song about urban legends has a cool bluesy feel
with an interesting story thread that brings you back to the track over and over again. The strongest track is The Terminal Diner
with a gutsy voice, strong lyrics and a haunting feeling.
Julian has a vocal quality that captures the song perfectly
and by itself justifies the price of this EP."

"You're a very clever and creative
Wish more writers were as inventive as you!"
