Julia Biel @ The North Wall, Oxford
Saturday 6 June 2015, 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
£13 / £11 (concessions)
Hailed by the Independent as “the best British vocalist to emerge in an age”, award-winning singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Julia Biel is blazing a trail on the British music scene, blending vocals reminiscent of the greats of jazz’s golden age with a poetic yet conversational lyrical style and a uniquely sharp perspective on contemporary life and love.
Since spearheading a wave of British vocal folk/jazz with her pioneering and self-produced debut album Not Alone, co-written with folk/jazz guitarist Jonny Phillips, Biel is now looking forward to the release of her new record, an altogether bolder affair than her acoustic debut.
A former Perrier Jazz Vocalist of the Year, her set promises to be chock full of melancholic innocence and epic drama, with nods to Radiohead, PJ Harvey, Portishead and Bjork as well as to Nina Simone and Billie Holiday.
