Julie McKee


In a year known for young female singers, it’s tempting to ask why this one's any different. That there is a difference is the point: Julie McKee has some serious quality to her voice, a deft way with lyrics, and she plays piano brilliantly. If you've not heard her yet, think Randy Newman played with a Tori Amos feel, a slap of Ben Folds irreverence and a voice reminiscent of Annie Lennox and Jane Siberry. But Julie's her own smart, musical mix of pop, soul, rock, blues and classical. Read more on Last.fm
In a year known for young female singers, it’s tempting to ask why this one's any different. That there is a difference is the point: Julie McKee has some serious quality to her voice, a deft way with lyrics, and she plays piano brilliantly. If you've not heard her yet, think Randy Newman played with a Tori Amos feel, a slap of Ben Folds irreverence and a voice reminiscent of Annie Lennox and Jane Siberry. But Julie's her own smart, musical mix of pop, soul, rock, blues and classical. And her witty, gorgeous songs are being picked up by radio all over the UK, in her native Australia, and in the US - where she's already charted at no.1 on Que fm and been given a five star rating by New York's Wildy's World. A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT JULIE Julie’s been performing professionally for a couple of years.

Now, with a new album of original songs, she’s getting new recognition. What A Woman Shouldn’t Do is her debut studio album; its songs draw on her experiences of life in a big city and a fascination with the foibles of others. The resulting musical vignettes range from compassionate and tender to downright funny. Born in the States to Australian parents and now living in London, Julie's a classically trained pianist with a masters degree in jazz studies from the Guildhall School of Music & Drama. Her musical influences range just as far and wide, taking in pop, soul, rock, blues and classical - and it's all right there in the new album: “I listen to all kinds of music and would hate my songs to be described simply as one genre.

To me, good music is good music, wherever it comes from,” she says. What A Woman Shouldn't Do features: Julie McKee - vocals and piano, wurlitzer Simon Little – bass (Divine Comedy, Ben Folds) Mark Fletcher – drums (Liane Carroll) Nigel Price – guitar (James Taylor Quartet) Rob Gentry - hammond, Rhodes (Lazenby) Steve Rubie - alto flute (and owner of London's legendary 606 Club) Read more on Last.fm.
