Julia’s voice has been likened to such artists as: “Sade, Dido, Norah Jones, Ursula Rucker, Lisa Gerrard, Annie Lennox, Shirley Bassey, Sinead O’Connor and Donna Summer” - although given the diversity of these artists, her style is her own. Her vocals have been called “sultry, sexy, superb, stunning, sweet, scorching, intense, dizzying, cream, aromatic, bewitching, exotic, exceptional, luxurious….”
