Show Detail
Wed-06-May (7:00pm) - £15.00
Julia Biel
Show Time 8:30pm / Doors Open 7pm

Hailed by the The Independent as 'the best British vocalist to emerge in an age', Julia Biel is a rare artist indeed. Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, Julia Biel blends 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 a melodic and accessible chorus-led style of song-writing.

A former Perrier Jazz Vocalist of the Year winner and Jazz Awards Rising Star nominee, her self-produced debut album 'Not Alone' spearheaded a wave of British vocal folk/jazz and emerged amid a flurry of critical praise. Features with a host of other acts followed including Polar Bear, Hidden Orchestra and Soothsayers.

Whether performing her own self-penned material, or re-inventing old classics, Julia Biel has forged a unique signature sound, edgy and smooth in equal measure and lies somewhere between jazz, pop, soul and folk. With influences including Massive Attack, Nina Simone, Bjork and Portishead plus an eagerly anticipated second album soon to be released, prepare to be moved, beguiled, soothed, transported and ultimately mesmerised. Julia is currently touring in trio format, accompanying herself on piano and guitar alongside Idris Rahman on bass and Saleem Raman on drums.

"Soul-baring songs of great beauty from the best British vocalist to emerge in an age" The Independent

“Julia Biel has her own style… striking and original and also formidably accurate in both pitch and rhythm and beautifully controlled” The Observer

“a voice of supreme subtlety and honeyed depth. Her mesmerizing voice and magnetic stage presence should encourage many to follow where she leads... about to hit the big time...” The Guardian

“The gorgeous-voiced Biel sings affecting, original compositions which occasionally recall Bjork and Joanna Newsom.” The Evening Standard
