Profile

Julia Biel is a self-taught singer and songwriter, pianist and guitarist with a sharp perspective on life and love, a voice as electrifying as it is hypnotic, and a fondness for pop song structures as much as for jazz harmony, She inhabits distinctive musical territory combining the raw emotional power of her old-school-jazz-sounding vocal with backdrops that include elements of 1960s psychedelia, electronica-imbued acoustics, driving electric guitars and epic, cinematic arrangements.


Tipped as 'the best British vocalist to emerge in an age' by The Independent and turning heads with her performances wherever she goes, 2015 saw the release of Julia's highly anticipated and acclaimed second album, 'Love Letters and Other Missiles', nominations for a MOBO Award and an Urban Music Award as well as a packed touring schedule taking her worldwide. Fast forward to 2017 and a third album release is on the horizon; her first single 'Wasting Breath' is released on May 12, 2017 to audiences worldwide.


Julia Biel won the title ‘Perrier Vocalist of the Year’ in 2000. In 2002 she was invited to join the F-IRE Collective, and her first band, including Sebastian Rochford on whose Polar Bear project she has also featured, drew largely from its ranks. In 2005 she released her self-produced debut album Not Alone, which featured songs co-written with guitarist Jonny Phillips. In 2006 she was nominated in the 'Rising Star' category of the BBC Jazz Awards.


Her second album, Love Letters and Other Missiles, was released internationally in 2015 after the previous year's EP Nobody Loves You Like I Do. These releases featured self-penned material and were produced by Idris Rahman and Julia Biel. She performs accompanying herself on piano or electric guitar with backing from bass and drums, touring extensively in the UK and abroad. She was nominated in the Best Jazz Act category in the MOBO Awards and the Urban Music Awards in 2015.


Formerly the singer in 'Unity', she came to the attention of Everything But The Girl producer Ben Watt who released their EP Love in the Dead of Night on his Buzzin Fly label in 2004. Subsequently Watt invited Biel to collaborate on other material, a single of his "Guinea Pig" (2008) and also "Bright Star" (2010), a three way collaboration between Watt, Biel and German producer Stimming.
