Biography

Julia Marty (born Ioulia Vladimirovna Danshina) grew up in the former Soviet Union and began her musical training at age six. The daughter of an accomplished pianist and choirmaster, she studied classical piano and graduated from the Rostov College of Music in Russia. Julia’s career quickly shifted to vocal music when she was asked to audition for the popular Russian folk group, Balalaika. Her talents propelled her through the very competitive levels of Russian folk music and culminated with the internationally acclaimed Don Cossacks. Julia has performed in France, Germany, Spain, South Korea, and Canada, and in the United States, where she toured under the sponsorship of Columbia Artists in over fifty major cities. In 2001, Julia decided to remain in the States, where she now lives with her husband and daughter in central Missouri, living her American Dream. Her life as come full circle: from world-touring vocalist to hotel housekeeper, to operating room technician, and now again Julia returns to the stage and studio. Her style is eclectic and her talent diverse, consisting of original contemporary adult music in English and Russian, as well as Russian folk music, instrumentals and a cappella works. Her purpose: to bridge the gap between East and West through her music.

Lyrics

Dark Night

Written By: Julia Marty/ Russian Folk

O dark night why are you so stormy
And do not light my way?
I will walk through the darkness to find my love.

O dark night, you will never know
How much I want him here
To warm my heart.

O dark night, why are you so stormy,
Waving the ripening wheat
And breaking my tender heart?

O dark night, you will never know
How I long for him.
Tears are falling from my eyes…
Where are you, my falcon?

All of This Time

Written By: Julia Marty

I’ve felt you in the breeze,
Seen you in the streams,
Held you in my dreams.

I’ve known this voice for years,
Longed to hold you near
Kiss away your tears.

I never knew that you loved me,
All of this time from afar.
Two separate lives separate stories,
All of this time worlds apart.

When the music made you weep,
Waking you from sleep,
That was us my sweet.

When the painting made you stare,
Were you not aware,
I was waiting there?

We always knew love would find us,
All of this time worlds apart.
Two lives together with one soul,
For all of time, heart to heart.

I’ve felt you in the breeze,
Seen you in the streams,
Held you in my dreams.

Silken Grass

Written By: Julia Marty/ Russian Folk

O my silken grass,
I have no one next to me to stroll on you…
I have no one next to me to stroll on you.

I am without my friend, my hope.
He loved me, but only for a short while…
He loved me, but only for a short while.

Only for a short while… perhaps for just an hour.
My love left me then to go to the city…
My love left me then to go to the city.

My love left me then for the city.
But this woman will follow him…
But this woman will follow him.

Crescent Moon

Written By: Julia Marty/ Russian Folk

Hurry, hurry behind the roof, crescent moon,
Hurry to me, my love, for our nightly farewell.

Hurry to me, my love, for our nightly farewell.
My heart is aching for your love.

There are no days or nights in my life
When my hazel eyes do not cry for you.

Hurry, hurry behind the roof, crescent moon

Natalia

Written By: Julia Marty

An early morning, dusted with snow,
And windows etched with Winter flowers,
The kaleidoscope of my childhood seems
Without invitation to enter my dreams.

Your lovely face, laced with a hundred lines;
Your sparkling voice, through the fields of Kologrev,
Ran like a clear silver stream.

Natalia, your Russian name, so beautiful yet so strong…
Loving and forgiving, you gave all your love till the last.
Your gentle heart knew no other song.

I recall a summer long ago with cherries in bloom
And sunshine gently kissing your tired hands.
You beckoned me then to follow my dreams
And to know love and pain as sisters.

Seasons

Written By: Julia Marty

Do you remember spring?
We paused to gaze at each growing thing:
Which is flower, which is weed…
How this oak began a seed?

Recall for me the summer heat,
With breezes bending billowing clouds.
We toiled by day, sweet dreams at night,
To rise once more at morning’s light.

Joys of life must come with pain,
Let’s not weep because it rains.
Beyond the clouds the sun shines still…
Beyond the clouds the sun shines still.

Fall is upon us now:
The harvest bears our labor’s reward.
Time to reflect and give our thanks
For love we shared and wine we drank.

Silently snows grow deep…
Cold, still darkness will descend.
I’ll make some tea, you tend the fire.
From winter’s death blooms spring’s desire.

Do not fear the coming frost,
We can’t find what’s never lost.
Beyond the clouds the sun shines still…
Beyond the clouds the sun shines still.

Forever love the snow, the rain.
Let’s not regret the doubts, the pain.
We’ve always loved, we always will:
Beyond each cloud the sun shines still…
Beyond each cloud the sun shines still.
