ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
British singer-songwriter Julia Fordham continues to enchant audiences around the world with her extraordinary vocal range and heartfelt songs. From 1988’s Happy Ever After — her first release and an international hit — and throughout all 15 albums, her unique voice and exquisitely crafted compositions strike an everlasting chord.

A luscious contralto that she wields with an almost operatic command, it is one of the most strikingly beautiful new voices to be heard in pop. - New York Times

At 14, Julia started writing songs and performing at local folk clubs. Soon after, she was invited to be a guest singer with the UK’s National Youth Jazz Orchestra, which sparked a lifelong love of the genre. On her highly acclaimed second album, Porcelain, two original jazz songs “For You, Only For You” and “China Blue” were featured along with the hits “Manhattan Skyline” and “Lock and Key.”

In 1992, “Love Moves” (from her third album Swept), was chosen as the theme song for The Butcher’s Wife, starring Demi Moore, and became a big hit in the UK, US, and the Philippines.

Four of Julia’s albums have been produced by Grammy winner Larry Klein (Joni Mitchell, Herbie Hancock, Madeleine Peyroux). Her 2005 live CD (That’s Life) and DVD (That’s Live), features Klein as producer and bass player as part of an all-star band including the Academy Award-winning trumpet player/composer, Mark Isham. On the soulful song (from the album of the same name) “Concrete Love,” Julia performs a stunning duet with another Grammy winner, India.Arie.

After 2004’s devastating tsunami struck in Asia, Julia became intimately involved in a charity project to help rebuild a school in India, by donating the proceeds from a “Happy Ever After” remix. It featured a children’s choir from England. This beautiful production brought Julia back full circle to the place where she first started writing and performing as a teenager.

In 2007, Julia’s Baby Love EP, a set of unconditional love songs dedicated to her daughter, Marley Rose, was released.

Julia's 10th album, China Blue, is a collection of original jazz compositions, except for one song: a reinterpretation of Michael McDonald’s “I Keep Forgetting” with Michael himself contributing his amazing vocals.

Under The Rainbow, is a piano/voice album featuring all her hits and fan favorites, plus a new song: “Skipping Under The Rainbow."

Mixed, Shaken & Stirred is Julia’s latest project. This unique album features some of the songs from Julia’s much loved first album, all of which have been remixed, reworked and reconstructed by some of today’s leading and cutting edge producers of dance and electronic music. Released worldwide on October 28.

The first single “The Comfort Of Strangers (Vinny Vero Remix Single Edit) premiered on YouTube on September 30.

Julia’s next album, Live & Untouched, is a wonderful cross-section of songs recorded at recent shows. The first single “Ingrid & Humphrey” will be the instant gratification track when the album is purchased as a pre-order on November 18. Live & Untouched will be released on November 25.

Both albums will be available worldwide in both physical and digital formats, as well as, streaming services.

Totes Mindblown!
I tend to shy away from special remix albums such as this, as there is always this fear that my original perception of the songs would be tainted , but since I am familiar with Vinny Vero's work, I kept the faith. Upon hearing the previews, my jaw dropped! I just got to have them in my collection, stat! What I never thought possible was just proudly blasting out of the speakers! No wonder all the tracks won Julia's approval because apart from Grant Mitchell (and Vinny Vero), you can actually tell and feel that the DJs/remixers are fans or at the very least familiar with Julia's material, especially her debut album where all of the songs were taken from and given a new form. Listening to this is pure joy as it comes close to being time warped back and forth between 1988 and 2016, i.e. My Lover's Keeper (Parralox Remix) it's as if it brought back a memory that didn't happen in the past at all, envisioning myself cutting some serious shapes on the dancefloor had this remix came out in the late '80s when I was a lot able to! lol I love how the ballads were given new life sounding like they were tracks straight from a Hed Kandi or Ministry of Sound Chillout album. How I wish this album becomes available on vinyl too, as this whole project seems to transcend time and taste particularly for people whoe can't seem to get enough of Happy Ever After. Well done, guys!
