A Message from Julie Blue:

Much of this music was written the last 3 years while recovering from 2 car accidents that occurred within one week. It made me stop long enough to give my muse time to create a new body of songs. I had planned a trip to Thailand Christmas 2004 and was unable to go because of the injuries. Finding Grace in Everything was written the day before the Tsunami. Had I been in Thailand I would have likely died. My muse reminds me that there is grace in everything, sometimes you just have to look a lot harder. Composing music is such a joyful and healing thing for me from the Bluer than Blue moments to the One of a Kind Woman days, each one has a song and a message to bring. I hope this music finds its way to touch your heart and brighten your day.

MEDIA REVIEWS:

“With a voice as sultry as Sade’s and as dreamy as Dido’s, Blue unites the world of jazz, blues, pop, and soul with tasteful and deliciously inviting compositions. “
- Carson James, Chillout Island


“soars with beautiful melodies and inspired lyrics.”
- The Vancouver Province


“Blue’s voice is rich with texture and laced with palpable emotion.”
- Adam Herrington Whisperin’ & Hollerin’ U.K.


"Julie Blue, what a performer! She took our quiet little gospel hour on Sunday morning and galvanized it into Prime Time. Julie has the amazing gift of drawing in both audience and other performers and making them a part of her joy in music. It's impossible not to be captured by her
songs, her spirit and beautiful voice. Truly a major highlight of our festival."
- Keith Alexander, Artistic Director
Edge of the World Music Festival


JULIE BLUE BIO

Songs of healing and love embody the heart of Canadian singer/songwriter Julie Blue. With a richly soulful and beautifully evocative voice that has had music critics comparing her to Norah Jones, Sade, and Dido, Blue looks beyond stylistic boundaries, weaving together influences of jazz, classical, pop, and blues with a painter's eye for sonic detail. Blue's latest album, One of a Kind Woman, brims with warmth and an uplifting, therapeutic spirit. At a time when pop music has been redefined as disposable and superficial, Blue has dared to inject substance and timelessness in her songs, polishing them with radio-friendly hooks and a classy presentation.

Blue was born in Calgary, Canada. Her early passion for music led her to start playing piano at the age of five. By the time she was 17, Blue was already singing and playing professionally. She finished training in jazz at Capilano College in Vancouver, British Columbia and spent years studying classical music and voice. A global artist, Blue has performed throughout the United States, Africa, Australia, Mexico, Spain, the Caribbean and Japan. She currently performs at festivals and concerts with her trio or quartet of world-class musicians including multi-instrumentalist Joseph Pepe Danza and renowned bassist Laurence Mollerup.

Julie's current projects include a performance as Musical Keynoter for Goldie Hawn's Bright Light Foundation fundraising event; Matthew Fox's Earth Revival Cosmic Mass; and the Neale Donald Walsch world tour. She also performed at the Minerva Foundation's Life in Balance forum, and the international conference of both Noetic Science and Religious Science. She was a featured artist at the International Unity Conference in Kansas City, was part of the grand opening of the new R.O.M. museum in Toronto, and performed at the Edge of the World festival in Queen Charlotte Island.

She founded the Singspiration Creative Empowerment Programs in 1989 and has touched thousands of people through her Healing Sound and Songwriting Performance courses. Blue also writes music for and directs a 70-voice gospel choir, "The Singspiration Singers." Blue has also artistically directed many shows and concerts over the span of her career. She continues her fifth year of performances as Motivational Presenter at Harv Eker's Enlightened Warrior Camps in Canada and the U.S.

Julie's film composing credits include the award-winning documentaries Close to the Heart, Stolen Lives (which was the recipient of a Leo award), and Life and Times of Alex Trebek and Shipyard Lament for CBC. Her current projects include Traveling at the Speed of Life, an Ocean Playground Productions feature film; the National Film Board's documentary My Father, My Teacher; and the PBS documentary called Pete: Moving Man-Made Mountains.

One of a Kind Woman, her sixth album, made its debut a two sold-out concerts in Vancouver. Her instrumental CDs, Shining Through and Heart of the River, are selling internationally.

Inspiration and toe tapping at the same time
The music on this CD stays with you. It heals and inspires. Some songs are simply thoughtful while others have you tapping your toes and clapping along. Extremely worthwhile.

Pamela Dewolf

Best music to listen to when having a bad day.
Have you ever had one of those days? You know, get up late, spill your coffee, miss the bus. When I'm having one of those days, I let Julie's lyrics put the smile back on my face. She has an amazing way of combining whimsy, reality and spirituality to sing about life and living.
