Biography

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."

..."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.

…"She has a varying music style all the way from rock to country and folk, and a voice to be jealous of”…

…"Showstopping vocals and songs that were at once unique and accessible, in the vein of Neko Case. Keep your eyes open for her”…
