Cameos is a song cycle with music by Juliana Hall set to poems by Molly Fillmore.
The song cycle has been recorded for the Blue Griffin label and is part of an upcoming full-length album release of songs by Juliana Hall, entitled Bold Beauty (anticipated release: August 2021.) For more information about Juliana Hall, go to: JulianaHall.com
Cameos is inspired by the visual art of six American women: Sarah Albritton, Alice Dalton Brown, Corita Kent, Agnes Pelton, Nellie Mae Rowe, and Kay Walkingstick. Each song and poem is named after one of the women, and captures some part of the essence of their work.
