Songwriter & Composer

Original Music

Music is where I go for inspiration

Music is where I go for inspiration, each song a beacon on my journey through life. I love crafting windows of sound to take myself, and you, on beautiful sonic travels. 

The songs on my vocal albums are messages and stories; of falling down and getting back up, of digging deep to find the light in the soul. I hope they touch you and raise you up too. take me there

My instrumental music combines my other voice – the grand piano – with moving accompaniment like cello and sax. It’s there for you to relax and enjoy, have a listen. take me there

The music inspired by film brings the magic of matching light, color and sound to the emotions of the project. take me there

Julie

In the eyes

of others...

“Blue breaks the heart with the aching beauty of her singing; it's almost too lovely for this world, a voice sent down from the heavens. Blue's vocals are down-to-Earth and in your ear; they whisper in the darkest corners of your room, caught between the sun and shadow. Blue combines sensuality with empathy and tender loving care; her vocals don't just kiss you, they embrace you.”
