HOPKINTON, R.I. – For a singer whose career is just starting to gain national and international attention, it is ironic that Juliana Fraioli’s favorite place to sing is a place called “The Bitter End.” Fraioli, 25, who grew up in North Kingstown and now lives in Hopkinton, in between stops of New York City, Boston and Providence, has just released a new CD called, “Juliana.” The Italian-American, classically trained songstress brings a fresh, new sound to contemporary music. She writes and performs songs of passion and angst, fantasy and fun, all through the eyes of a wise young person. According to her bio, with early training in piano, violin, flute, and voice, Juliana grew up with a classical guitarist father and singer mother. Shem has spent much of her life in international circles as her parents performed, lectured, and traveled in Europe, Latin and South America, and the Caribbean. Born in Providence, her favorite nursery music ranged from Latin to lullabies with a strong dose of Mozart. Her vocals are both sweet and sultry, her range wide and expressive. Juliana’s lyrics can be heartfelt or sassy and she performs them like an angel with an attitude. An interview with up and coming singer Juliana Fraioli can be found in this week's Standard Times.
