Hailed by THE INDEPENDENT as ‘the best British vocalist to emerge in an age’, self-taught and award-winning singer, songwriter, pianist and guitarist JULIA BIEL is blazing a trail on the British music scene blending vocals reminiscent of the greats of jazz’s golden age with a poetic yet conversational lyrical style, a uniquely sharp perspective on contemporary life and love and accessible chorus-led song-writing presented in a widescreen sound you can lose yourself in.
With a busy touring schedule taking her all across Europe and beyond into major jazz festivals alongside some of music’s biggest names and including some amazing headline shows in her own right, an incredible response to Julia Biel’s second and MOBO-nominated album ‘Love Letters and Other Missiles’ has seen her being invited to play ever bigger stages all over the world. A natural performer with instant crossover appeal, as the LONDON EVENING STANDARD put it, ‘Julia Biel should really be a household name by now’..
Fast forward to 2018 and the release of her eponymous third album looks set to see the rise of JULIA BIEL continue…
“Julia Biel has a great voice. That is possibly the understatement of the year so far… She is amazing.”
JAZZ IN EUROPE
“another hauntingly enigmatic collection of mostly self-penned songs of an exceptional drama, breadth and craft… Biel’s voice is unfailingly beautiful in tone thoroughout.”
