"Klee's voice is exceptional"

"Klee’s voice is exceptional, and her music a provocative mix of folk, country and indie." - Splash! Chicago

Klee’s voice is exceptional, and her music a provocative mix of folk, country and indie. - Splash! Chicago


""Lyrically smart, country/folk, pop songs. Great stuff. But then comes “Drunken Chess”…"


At this point, the whole album becomes else – more emotionally dangerous, more compelling, and more satisfying.

" I thought I’d just be globbing on to a Julia Klee frenzy. But no. Seems like everyone else is still missing out on this great record. A great record, if you like songs about lost love, being used, left, hurt, or heartbroken. Or, if you’re a fan of singers like Dolly Parton, Kelly Hogan, Emmylou Harris, Neko Case… and yes, the album stands up to those comparisons.”

"Showstopping..."

"Showstopping vocals and songs that were at once unique and accessible, in the vein of Neko Case. Keep your eyes open for her, as well." -Windy City Rock

"She's Got..."

"She's got pipes that rival Neko Case and Kelly Hogan" - TIME OUT CHICAGO

"Julia Klee..."

"Julia Klee has a Chicago career of her own but shares a huge voice for harmony." - NO DEPRESSION - No Depression


"Recent Press"

"She has a varying music style all the way from rock to country and folk, and a voice to be jealous of." - Gapers Block

"In the Arms of Annalee+Julia Klee and the Clockworks+Slaughtertown String Band"


" Julia Klee's versatile vocal stylings range from Joanna Newsom quirks to gospel-tinged alt-country harmonies." - Time Out Chicago


"RadioMike #142, Ecleticism, Hellbus, Ian Sklar, Alfabeats And More "

"JULIA KLEE has an amazing voice, more so than you could possibly realize. Chicago is apparently an incredible testing ground for such wonderful vocal and lyrical beauty. Does Julia realize how wonderful a talent she is? Does the Chicago music going public realize that if they don’t see her soon, it will be too late as she grows angel wings and flies into the heavens?"

-Mike Perazzetti - FEVERED BRAIN RADIO NETWORK

Bio

Julia Klee has been compared to the likes of Emmylou Harris, Kelly Hogan and Bille Holiday...with a songwriting stylethat is playful, and a voice that is sometimes haunting.

..."Every once in awhile, we see a live show that's so transcendental in its scope, that takes the live venue and transforms it into a singular experience, where the voices of the crowd drops away, and the artist becomes a singular focus."

- The Real Big Rock Candy Mountain-

..."She's got pipes that rival Neko Case and Kelly Hogan."

-Time Out Chicago-

Most recently making waves in the Chicago music scene with her record "Big Charade", Klee's prior performances with acclaimed songwriter Joe Pug at Lollapalooza, and on the album "Messenger", brought Julia to a wider audience in 2009.

Invited to sing on the record, "The Best of Times," with Austin native Colin Gilmore, amongst country greats Willie Nelson, Rhett Miller, Shawn Colvin and The Flatlanders, put Julia on the map and into the studio to make her own record.

Big Charade", is a brilliantly crafted collection of piano driven songs with a cast of alt-country musicians that have a tour history ranging from The Bastard Sons of Johnny Cash, Head of Femur, Merle Haggard and ZZ Top.

Her song, "Overpass", a haunting duet recorded with Jim Becker (Iron & Wine and Califone) was a bizarre twist of fate. It was a live performance by Iron and Wine that inspired Klee to drop out of music school years earlier to pursue her own project.
