Juliana Riccardi’s new 7-track EP, Full Cup arrived on October 8th, and charts a very personal journey “from self-destruction to self-acceptance”. The EP’s title track answers the question, “Do you view life as a glass full or empty?”, but takes a specific focus on assessing oneself, and finding the positives that outweigh the negative. The accompanying video brings home the idea of “self-love” as a basis for finding a balance in other relationships.
The LA-based singer-songwriter and emerging producer recorded Full Cup live at Dreamland Recording Studio, bringing together analog and digital effects. She drew on her background in Jazz Performance for the EP, but you’ll also hear connections to Blues, Roots, and a love for the 60s and 70s, including artists like Stevie Nicks, Creedence Clearwater Revival, and Bonnie Raitt.
A previous single from the EP, “Hold For Your Woman” is “about someone having the clarity to not be intimidated by a strong, independent feminine person or energy”.
