Description

Love, conflict, rootlessness, solitude... Julia Biel wraps her unmistakable voice around profoundly universal themes in timeless songs of spine-tingling beauty on this eponymous third album.

Her distinctive melodic flair, her poetic yet conversational lyrical style and an ability to write songs as magical as they are immediate all combine to create an unusual elegance in the world of jazz/pop crossover music.

Accompanying herself on either piano or guitar and contributing string arrangements, backing vocals and percussion as well as 11 of the 12 songs presented, Julia once again joins forces with producer Idris Rahman to build on the production style they developed for her MOBO-nominated second album 'Love Letters and Other Missiles' to carve out a unique space in the musical landscape where the classic meets the contemporary.

Press Quotes

"Another hauntingly enigmatic collection of mostly self-penned songs of an exceptional drama, breadth and craft...Biel's voice is unfailingly beautiful in tone throughout."

JAZZWISE ****

"Biel's third solo album confirms her knack for penning smart, intimate songs and delivering them in a voice both crystalline and dreamy...a total delight."
