About Julia Biel

It will be followed by a performance by Julia Biel. Her exceptional ‘Billie Holiday meets Bjork‘ voice weaves a magical spell out of folk, jazz and soul. “The demanding nature of the music – the wide range of styles, sonorities, the sometimes irregular harmonies and rhythms – might seem like hard work. But Biel is obviously committed to the experimental aesthetic, and her mesmerizing voice and magnetic stage presence should encourage many to follow where she leads” (THE GUARDIAN, Culture Vulture, April 2006).

Julia Biel (composer, voice, guitar, keys) , who was also nominated in the BBC Jazz Awards ‘Rising Star’ category, got a place in The Independent’s Top 5 best live performances of 2006 in their review of the year and even a brief modeling contract for Nokia’s ‘I am my music’ campaign when she was one of 6 artists chosen globally to feature in the print advertising for their new phone/mp3 player.
She will be performing on Saturday night with Idris Rahman on saxophone, keys, backing vocals, Michael Pickering on drums, Marco Piccioni on electric guitar, backing vocals & Ben Hazleton on double bass, while on Sunday, Sebastian Rochford will take the drummers place.
