Julie Black first appeared on the horizon with her debut release Call Me Angel for Blues. The album was issued in 2007 by BOJA Records, the independent label of music veteran Bob Langford (Deep Purple, Atlanta Rhythm Section, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Joe South) and mastered by Rodney Mills (R.E.M., Charlie Daniels, Gregg Allman, Pearl Jam, Journey and Patsy Cline).
Blues Revue Magazine, the world’s largest blues publication, referred to her as “a major singing and songwriting talent”. The album climbed up the charts, including those at XM Sirius Satellite Radio. Call Me Angel for Blues was named one of the Top 5 Contemporary Blues Albums of the Year by Blues Critic Radio and could be heard on blues, jazz & rock stations worldwide. No small feat for a new artist.
Her sophomore album “You Just Might Win” (BOJA 2010) was another great success. The album featured 15 original songs and a wider example of Julie’s songwriting abilities. Glowing reviews poured in as more people discovered Julie’s music. The album made it into the Top 10 at B.B. Kings’ Bluesville on XM Sirius. Committed to originality and the artistic process, Julie Black continues to explore many creative possibilities. Her innate songwriting abilities have started opening doors to work with other artists; including celebrated vocalist & recording artist Shaun Murphy and Finnish Blues/Rock band The Ärräpää Orchestra. She performs often at major music festivals, concert halls and select venues. Her passionate live performances are intensified by the superb musicianship of her worldclass band; Dave Eichenberger (guitar), Michael Johnn (keys), Father Bill Spicuglia (bass) & Frankie Timpanelli (drums)
