“Julie July and her band have delivered a first-rate collection of contemporary Folk Rock music. Quality songs, superb vocals and forthright lyrics delivered with skill, technique and conviction. Perfectly conceived, recorded and superbly realised – this is proof that she is one of the brightest talents in the UK right now”
John O’Regan Journalist & Broadcaster – fRoots, Living Tradition, LCCR.

 

‘Went to the gig @ Birmingham Kitchen Garden Café last night and really enjoyed the set.  Great musicianship and arrangements from the band and Julie’s superb vocal interpretations of Sandy Denny’s songbook really do justice to what is outstanding material.  A couple of original songs of their own were also performed and fitted into the set very well indeed.  Thanks for an evening of great live music and placing an outstanding musical legacy right where it should be, alive and well and being performed for people to enjoy.  A rare opportunity not to be missed!” (Garry – Birmingham)

 

“Have you heard of this fantastic singer Julie July and her band, they cover Sandy Denny songs and to say they cover them is to do them a disservice.  They bring life back to the songs….and I am sure if Sandy was still here, she would have loved them” (Ken)
