Nedra Russ & julio inglasses
 

Nedra Russ (aka The Harmonica Lady) and Julio "inglasses" Guerra make up nJr - an acoustic songwriting duo in the Americana tradition. Their music is eclectic, inspired by Traditional Blues, Folk, Country, Old-Time Mountain, and Rock roots. From the Little Bumblebee to the Happy Little Frog to Dusty Roads to Just Hit Rewind (to name just a few), the lineup and variety of of artful compositions by this pair presents a pleasure to explore. And, any cover tune that inspires emulation by them receives a new lease on life with the blessing of Nedra's inventive and hard-driving virtuoso harmonica style and soulful vocals on top of the foundation of Julio's solid and masterful rhythm guitar.  Nedra and Julio constitute an orchestra of two.


These seasoned award-winning musicians, true soul mates united by a bond of performance and composition, welcome you to their page.
