Perth Concert Hall 24/11/17

Myself and the band will perform in the beautiful Perth Concert Hall tomorrow evening, November 24th, in a special ‘Celtic Sessions’ double bill with the mighty Session A9.  Some tickets are still available here.

The new album ‘alterum’ has been receiving great reviews and airplay too – thanks to all who have bought the record and to everyone who has shown such great support over the last few months.  I truly appreciate it.

Remember the album is available directly from us at the website shop in CD format and as downloads (high-def 24-bit, 44.1kHz Stereo wav OR MP3).

Our ‘alterum’ vinyls have been delayed, much to our great disappointment, and we are awaiting a final delivery time, which will be early in 2018.  For anyone who orders from us in the meantime, you will get the download immediately, and the vinyl will follow as soon as we can get it to you.

Love,

Julie

 

Announcing ‘alterum’

We are delighted to announce that Julie’s fifth studio album ‘alterum’ will be released worldwide on 27.10.17

Engineered by legendary musician Calum Malcolm and featuring special guests including Mary Chapin Carpenter, the Latin title of this record gently suggests that Julie’s latest offering will have a somewhat different musical twist.

Pre-ordering is available directly from the artist here at the shop – and all pre-orders from www.juliefowlis.com will be shipped two weeks in advance of the worldwide release.  All orders made before Sept 30th will be also be signed by Julie.

Looking forward to sharing more news with you next week!
