Julia Sheer has nothing but fond memories of her growing up in Colorado. “I had the best childhood ever,” the songstress reflected. “I lived in this little cul-de-sac in Golden – where they make Coors Beer. My dad said we were bottle raised on Coors Lite. We played in the snow and the sun, and had a lot of childhood friends that were great. It was an amazing experience,” she said of growing up outside of Denver. “It was twenty minutes to downtown, and twenty minutes to the mountains.” Her childhood memories also contain many clear recollections of music. “I listened to a lot of Fleetwood Mac and the Eagles. That’s what my parents were listening to. I’ve always loved music and being able to sing.” However, it wasn’t until her late teens that she seriously consider pursuing as a vocation. “I didn’t really think it was a realistic career until I was about eighteen. Up till that point, I just thought it was a dream that someday I might be able to be.”
Things changed when Julia began to play some local shows in the Denver area – and began to gain a loyal following of people who believed in her and her talent. That was a catalyst for bringing the singer – who was so shy that she only sang in the shower before then – to come out of her shell.
