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 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!
