'Three Little Words' - NEW RELEASE

Hey hope you’ve been doing well and living life to the max. I’ve some new music for your down time my friend :).

At the beginning of the year I decided I was going to create some solo piano/voice recordings to share with you. In my topsy-turvy music world, it’s something I’ve come to last despite many of you coming up to me after live shows asking if I had made a solo piano/voice record. I was listening honest..! But I felt I should only do this when I thought I could pull off putting the drama in the music recording full solo live takes in the studio singing and playing at the same time in a way that I’d be happy with… and that meant strictly no overdubs. This year the time was right - I felt ready for the challenge and cleared my diary for a week in March.

So now without further ado, I can share the first solo recording with you. It’s a brand new song called ‘Three Little Words’ and I’m pretty sure you’ll know the ones I mean. I wanted to write about the power words hold, and especially that particular pesky threesome. They can be healing, weaponised, manipulative, controlling or withheld - perhaps that’s when they have the most power of all.

For now, this series is streaming/download only but keep an eye out, there will be physical copies released bringing the whole series together at some point! If you want to be the first to hear when the next in the series is released, be sure to follow my page on Spotify and you’ll get automatic notifications.

Oh and don’t forget to let me know what you thought of the song - can’t wait to get your feedback :). Come and find me on Instagram or Facebook and we can chat there.

Happy listening, stay well!

Happy New Year

Happy New Year everyone!!  I hope 2016 is kind to you as we wave goodbye to an intense 2015. 

For me, as well as some much needed catching up with the people I love, it's been great to have the time to reflect back on an amazing run of shows in 2015, think about all the people I met and whose company I have enjoyed and of course on all the music we made.  The time has come to make a new album and I'm happy to say it's shaping up better than I could have imagined so I cannot wait for you to hear it and I hope you will during the course of 2016. 

Let's see what 2016 brings.  Personally I'm hoping for a little kindness and compassion to enter the political realms.  All the while remembering it all starts with us - being good to ourselves, listening to our bodies and above all, finding a stillness amid the franticness just to enjoy the miracle of being. 

Wishing you everything you wish for yourself,

love

Julia.x

 

 

 

In new music we trust

I am still floating somewhere on Cloud 9 after an absolutely incredible summer of touring.  The shows at weekend in Norway and Sweden were the icing on the cake with just such an amazingly warm and powerful reception from everyone who came.  Myself, Idris and Saleem can't thank you enough for giving us some wonderful memories over these past few months. 

Back in London now, I am working hard on preparing some new music for you, so do stay tuned and remember, if you want to be the first to hear about any new releases, free mp3s or be in line for exclusive early bird access to tickets (as and when possible!), do join the mailing list.  Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click 'join mailing list'!

Shows for this year continue in October - London, Ingolstadt and Vienna still to come!!  See the 'tour' page for details :)    Over and out for now.
