Julia Messenger Biography

JULIA MESSENGER - SINGER

"Julia Messenger should be fighting off the offers- the dizzying force and passionate intensity of her voice, steering an unerring course between cruelty and cream, would merit the ticket price alone."
Sue Wilson, The Scotsman


It hasn't taken long for the exceptional Australian singer/songwriter and producer Julia Messenger to rapidly build a solid international name for herself. She has been consistently crowned by many in the U.S. as the 'Queen of Chill'. Born and raised in Melbourne, Julia has spent years touring and singing all over the globe and perfecting her unique vocal style.

Julia is unique in her ability as a vocalist and songwriter to metamorphosize across genres and break boundaries into new ground. This is largely due to the fact that she has a rare talent for it, and has chosen to live her life honouring it.

Throughout her career, Julia has caught the attention of many notable artists. Most recently she is working with global superstar DJ and Producer Ferry Corsten (consistently voted as one of the top 5 DJ s in the world and whose last album was #1 on the Dance Charts in the USA). Her song Black Velvet appears on his new album Twice In A Blue Moon.

Her songs and productions have appeared on numerous compilations in Europe and America alongside artists such as: Amy Winehouse, Norah Jones, Moby, Boozoo Bajou, Nitin Sawhney, Groove Armada, Ursula Rucker, Goldfrapp, Kruder & Dorfmeister, Zero 7, Rae & Christian, Joss Stone, Bebel Gilberto, Norah Jones, Basement Jaxx, Bebel Gilberto and Julee Cruise to name just a few.

Julia's voice has been likened to such artists as: Sade, Dido, Norah Jones, Ursula Rucker, Lisa Gerrard, Annie Lennox, Sinead O'Connor and Donna Summer - although given the diversity of these artists, her style is her own. Her vocals have been called "sultry, sexy, superb, stunning, sweet, scorching, intense, dizzying, cream, aromatic, bewitching, exotic, exceptional, luxurious".. and the list goes on!

She has regularly collaborated with a number of major artists - Klaus Schulze of 'Tangerine Dream' and 'Alphaville'; Massive Attack sound engineer/mixer Jeremy Allom; Henning Schmitz (Kraftwerk); Waldeck (Dope Noir, Vienna); Hans Nieswandt (Whirlpool Productions, Warner, Germany); Soul G and Tony Match (Paris); Frank Elting (previously MRI - Berlin); PFL (Hannover), Ian Melrose (Clannad ), MOD X (Paris), Moodfood (Grammy winner- USA) and Marcus Worgull. She is also currently collaborating with grammy nominee Scott Rockenfield (who is also the drummer with renowned US band Queensr├┐che) writing film music.

New York Times mentioned Julia's song Look Up Look Down as one of the top 10 on the playlist for U.S. restaurants.

De:bug claimed Myamisumi, Julia's first solo 12" vinyl, as "the best vocal album ever to come out of the Cologne electronic scene".

Julia's song So Complicated was a finalist in the prestigious ISC - International Songwriting Contest.

She is currently writing her 3rd solo album with MODx in Paris - a cool and catchy piece of work.

As well as a passion for working and writing with producers all over the globe, production and writing itself is one Julia's fortes. When she is in Australia she spends most of the time in her studio either working as a singer in her own right, or writing for others.

Julia is consistent with her work and skills and is unwavering in her passion to bring quality music to her fans. She has been widely reviewed as a 'world class-performer'.

SOME PRESS GRABS

"Julia Messenger is widely considered to be one of the most inspiring
musicians to ever come out of the studios of Australia!"

Elusive disc, 2004


"The new Dido of Chillout has been crowned"

Music Report, USA

"Whoever believed that there was nothing more to say after Kruder &
Dorfmeisters K & D Sessions is sorely mistaken.... On three appearances the
Australian singer and producer Julia Messenger leads the PFL tracks with
her dark and seductive voice, dipping the songs in a gentle breezy Soul,
with a depth and bass that goes through your body. The ideal classic
Popsong, is that which PFL and Julia Messenger purposefully move against..."

that?'' At last, these restaurants' current Top 5 playlists provide some

Hi Julia, Wow, that is too bad that the show is not shown there yet. Well I don't know how much u know about the show, but it is the top rated show on the entire Oxygen network. so u song would have been heard by a couple million people. I did watch the episode with u song Stripped in it ! I don't think they played the vocals, only the instrumental portion of the song if my memory serves me right. The episode the song is in is titled
" Can't Teach Old Dogs New Tricks ". As for royalties since the original episode aired on 10-24-11 it has played about 5 more times and it will play again tomorrow 11-7-11. The current season, which is season 7 just ended on 10-31-11, but expect for them to run the episode with u song in it a bunch more times leading up to when season 8 starts early next year 2012 like they always do. That is just here in USA , not counting how many times the episode will be aired in the other countries the show is shown in! Hope that information helps u some!
