Bio

Award winning children's recording artist Julie K channels her lifelong passion for music into writing songs that are inspirational, educational, and most of all, enjoyable for the whole family!

Born to perform
Music has played a significant role in Julie K's life since the age of five when she spent her time arranging backyard performances for the neighborhood. Julie received a Bachelor of Arts degree in vocal performance from Rollins College in Florida and owned and operated her own business that focused on teaching music and movement to children and families. Inspired by her son Weston and driven by a desire to create great music, Julie began writing songs that children and their parents could enjoy together. Julie K’s 2009 CD “A Sunny Day” and 2010 CD “Animal Party” have been recognized with the following awards: a 2011 and 2010 Parents’ Choice Award, 2011 Creative Child Album of the Year Award, 2010 Dr. Toy’s Best Vacation Product Award, Creative Child Award, Rising Star recognition from The National Parenting Association and the Dove Family Approved Seal from The Dove Foundation.

Let the sun shine
Julie K has brought a sunny day to audiences throughout the midwest! She has performed in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Missouri and Oklahoma and most recently held her second annual Noon Year's Eve Concert at The Caterpillar Performing Arts Center which was a huge success! She has partnered with The Children's Hospital of Illinois, Cookies For Kids Cancer, The Junior League of Peoria, The Peoria Jaycees, The St. Louis Art Festival, The St. Louis Big Read, The Crittenton Center's Festival of Trees, Day of the Dozer a benefit for the Community Cancer Center Foundation, The South Side Mission and AEYC Bright Futures. She wrote and performed “Roger The Reading Raccoon” as an opener for former First Lady Laura Bush and Congressman Aaron Schock.

Living life to the fullest
Julie K lives in Peoria, IL with her firefighter husband Donny and 7-year-old son Weston, the light of her life. When she is not performing, Julie can be found on the golf course watching her son or in the studio working on her latest project!
