BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Nominee 2018: Folk Singer Of The Year.

Julie Fowlis originally hails from North Uist in the Outer Hebrides and is now based in the Highlands of Scotland. Firmly established as a world music artist with a natural interest and ability to cross-over into other genres and styles, she will forever be known as the singing voice of Merida, the female protagonist in the Disney-Pixar Oscar/Bafta/Golden Globe winning movie 'Brave'.

During an impressive career spanning more than a decade, with multiple awards, accolades and four studio albums, she has until now, sung primarily in Scottish Gaelic. The Latin title of her fifth studio album 'alterum' gently suggests that this record is a departure from what has gone before and for the first time, she sings in English on a couple of tracks (Anne Briggs' - Go Your Way and Archie Fischer's - Windward Away).

'Fowlis's ascent to international stardom, putting Gaelic folk on the world music map, is evidence that a sublime voice transcends language and culture' - The Guardian.

Press Quotes

"Unusually beautiful with a very theraputic and calming shroud that gently ushers the demons away after a hard day"
