Biography

The voice of Julie Palmer is unforgettable and hauntingly beautiful in its delivery and feel. The 25 year old singer/songwriter has been playing guitar and writing songs since the age of ten and has been influenced by the likes of Billy Corgan, Heather Nova and Queen.

Originally from Gunnedah, New South Wales, Julies love and passion for music initiated a move to Sydney in 1999 to pursue her solo music career. The same year, one of Julies songs made the finals of a regional NSW songwriting competition 'Heatwave'.

After completing a Diploma in Music at the Contemporary Music Centre in 2003, Julie was named Songwriter of the Year at the 7th Annual CMC Awards.

During 2004 and 2005, Julie worked with local producer David Liotta of Tonemarket, developing her sound in the studio. What has emerged is a truly unique and original four track EP. Imagine Enya meets Massive Attack and Evanescence. Beats intertwine with driving guitars to provide a strong rhythmic setting. This combined with electronic soundscapes makes for a fresh and exciting new sound.

In October 2005, Julie was invited to work with UK songwriters Tom Nicholls and Tim Baxter, who have collaborated with the likes of Kylie Minogue, Jessica Simpson and Guy Sebastian. Julie recorded backing vocals for a song the duo wrote with Erica Baxter in the renowned Sony Studios. The song will appear on Erica's album released through Sony BMG Australia, due out later this year.

In December 2005, Julie was nominated for a MUSICOZ Award, Australia's premier music awards for unsigned artists. She reached the Top 5 of the World Music Category with her song ‘Destiny To Prove’. Julie also made the Top 10 in the Dance Category for her song ‘Run’, which is currently receiving airplay on Gunnedahs local radio station 2MO.

Julie performed an acoustic set to a packed home crowd in July this year, supporting Anthony Snape, another talented artist originally from Gunnedah. Julie is also working on a side project as one of the key songwriters collaborating with artists for a new development and production company.

2006 will see Julie Palmer continue to write and perform her original material around Sydney.

Lyrics

Run

Written By: Julie Palmer

Watching you run
Watching you run

I continuously stay with my feet glued to the ground while my head
circles the clouds
then my heart starts heading for the stars
I continuously stay with my feet glued to the ground while my head
circles the clouds
then my heart starts heading for the stars
And beyond, and beyond
I continuously stay with my heart telling me every which way I choose
will still lead to you

There may be more but it’s you I keep looking for
There may be more but it’s you

I continuously stay with my feet glued to the ground while my head
circles the clouds
then my heart starts heading for the stars
I continuously stay with my feet glued to the ground while my head
circles the clouds
then my heart starts heading for the stars
And beyond, and beyond
I continuously stay with my heart telling me every which way I choose
will still lead to you

Watching you run
Watching you run

I continuously stay with my heart telling me every which way I choose
will still lead to you
I continuously stay with my heart telling me every which way I choose
will still lead to you

You

Written By: Julie Palmer

I’ve never felt this much happiness
Until I met you
I’ve never felt this much love before
And it’s all due to you

You, you , you
You, you , you
You, you (I need you my love)
You, you , you
You, you , you (my one and only love)
You, you

I’ve never had someone care before
Until I met you
I’ve never felt so complete before
And it’s all due to you

I’ve never wanted so much before
Until I met you
I’ve never been so in love before
And it’s all due to you

You, you , you
You, you , you
You, you (I need you my love)
You, you , you
You, you , you (my one and only love)
You, you

If love is letting go of fear
Then I am fearless

You, you , you
You, you , you
You, you (I need you my love)
You, you , you
You, you , you (my one and only love)
You, you

You, you , you
You, you , you (my one and only love)
You, you (I need you my love)
You, you , you
You, you , you (my one and only love)
You, you

All I ask of you my love
You, you’ve already given me
All I ask of you my love
You, you’ve already given me
You, you’ve already given me
You, you’ve already given me

Destiny To Prove

Written By: Julie Palmer

I’ve been blinded by the sun
Kept these secrets too long
I’ve been watching the seasons change from green to gold
I’ve been losing all my thoughts
There’s only one that still haunts
Your face keeps clouding up my mind
I can’t see that far in front of me

But I’ve got a plan to follow through
I’ve got a destiny to prove
I wanna make that stars fall just to be near me
I’ve been keeping it all inside
I’m gunna burst I feel so alive
Every drop of rain is turning into sparks

I was locked up now I’m free
Got optimism in me
I can’t keep this stupid smile off my face
It’s been on my mind for a while
And even though it’s a thousand miles away
I still can say that I’m sure it’ll soon be mine

But I’ve got a plan to follow through
I’ve got a destiny to prove
I wanna make that stars fall just to be near me
I’ve been keeping it all inside
I’m gunna burst I feel so alive
Every drop of rain is turning into sparks

In my heart I think I’ve known
To the wind caution is thrown
In my heart I think I’ve known
To the wind caution is thrown, thrown, thrown

But I’ve got a plan to follow through
I’ve got a destiny to prove
I wanna make that stars fall just to be near me
I wanna make them see what I have known all my life
I wanna let you know that I’m here to stay

I’ve got a plan to follow through
I’ve got a destiny to prove
My destiny
My destiny
