One of Julia's favorite singers is Minnie Riperton to whom she dedicated the song "Roadside Angel."
Julia's daughter appeared on the cover of her EP "Baby Love" which was released on May 2006.
Julia did 20 local radio commercials, joined four bands, and made 42 demos before finally signing to Circa/Virgin Records in London.
As a kid, she played several instruments: the trumpet, tuba bass, percussion kit, the triangle, and the tambourine.
She appeared as a guest vocalist with the National Youth Jazz Orchestra in London during her late teens.
Julia is the president of Little Boo Records which released her EP "Baby Love".
Julia started writing songs at age 12 and performed in local folk clubs at age 14.
Julia helped with the 2004 Tsunami victims by giving the proceeds of a remix version of "Happy Ever After" to the rebuilding of a school in Cuddalore, India. In February of 2007, she attended the school's opening.
She released her 7th studio album "That's Life" on her 42nd birthday on August 10, 2004.
Her song "Shame" was featured in the movie Untamed Heart.
Her hit song "(Love Moves in) Mysterious Ways" reached No.19 on the UK charts.
Julia: There's a lot of peculiarities with British people, they do have these idiosyncratic ways. I find Americans are more open, more interested in self-development.
Julia: Mainly, my life revolves around music and the community. I am always delving into the next releases in film, music, and books.
Julia: (advice to artists who are starting out) I think I used to answer that question by saying, "Follow your instincts!" Now I think I would say, practice hard. Be really accomplished at what you do. Always keep your eye on the song. Be very clear whether you want to be a pop star or a musician.
Julia: I've always felt very comfortable in my feminine skin, and I never have been aware of that. I'm all good to go with the business as a woman. I think you have to play the game. Not to use your feminine ways and whiles, but more just sort of accept that there's a different energy around the man than there is the woman.
Julia: I think that it's some kind of dreadful uneven and frankly unfair balance when we constantly will pay off the executive but never cut the band any slack and make them pay for everything, even if the company collapses, closes down or drops the act.
Julia: My technique is that I don't have a technique or have a style that I polish and refine, but rather that pretty much 99% of the songs just seem to come to me with words and the music together at the same time, which is quite unusual, I think.
Julia: (on her fourth album "Falling Forward") This time I wanted to sing my pants off... I just came to feel you can't keep doing the same things forever.
Julia: I wanted to be a singer from the time I was a small child but my hopes were temporarily dashed when I couldn't get into the school choir. My voice was so low they wouldn't have me.
Julia: I'm someone who can have really close relationships with people, and I do have really close women friends, but I have never had a lesbian experience.
Julia: (on not being part of the mainstream) I think you need youth on your side for that, for one, and I think it also helps if you have a ton of cash behind you, or you have a video, or whatever it is that kind of propels the very small percentage of artists who make it into the stratosphere, so to speak.
