Julie Hanney

Julie Hanney has been a musician and songwriter since she was a young childl. She graduated from the University of Oregon where she received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music, with a special focus on composition. She did post-graduate studies in composition with Dr. Robert Kyr at the U of O.

Julie is a published composer of works for piano, choir, string quartet and more. She has been commissioned to compose pieces for choirs, string quartets, cello ensembles, piano duets and more. The piano was Julie's first love and she has played professionally for many years as a soloist, as the director of a community choir, in churches, and as an accompanist. Painting in Sound is her first official album release, and it represents a lifetime of learning, experiencing and growing.

Julie's second release is titled A Peace-Filled Christmas and the 12 songs on this album certainly do impart peace and an invitation to pause, to breathe and to be grateful for the present moment. This album is the antidote to an over-scheduled, stressful holiday season.

Julie's music is inspired by the natural world. From waterfalls to forests to oceans and falling leaves, the beauty and natural music of creation is something that Julie loves to capture with her musical paintings.

In addition to performing as a solo pianist, Julie is one of two members of 20 Fingers Piano Duo. Kyle Pickard, a talented pianist with an affinity for jazz, is the other member. 20 Fingers performs at a variety of venues and is working on recording their first CD.
