Oh, did I mention Burton Cummings and Leonard Cohen. Yes, she is the real deal, and is still gigging.
Many know Julie from her time as a percussionist and vocalist from the gold and platinum award-winning band The Parachute Club. She was a co-writer of several of the band’s songs and toured extensively with them throughout Canada, Europe, Jamaica and the USA performing in front of live audiences.
After leaving The Parachute Club Julie focused on session work and backing up artists such as Dan Hill, Bruce Cockburn, Shirley Eikhard, Alannah Myles, Ken Whiteley and David Foster. Her soulful & sultry voice can be heard on many recordings for Canadian artists.
Julie spent time in southern California thru the 90’s writing and recording and performing live with many musicians. She did several dates with the amazing Jose Feliciano during that time.
After moving back to Canada in 2003 Julie has been active raising money for Bicycle for Humanity, Aids, Toys for Tots, Okanagan Food Bank and her popular annual Winnipeg Social raising money for Prostate Cancer.
Julie has also teamed up with many of the talented local musicians on their live dates, recordings and writing sessions. Most recently she has focused on her duo project Le Mo Nay with the uber talented Steve Soucy and has gained popularity throughout the Okanagan Valley and Vancouver area.
Today Julie continues to be a sought after talent.
