JULIE IWHETA is a new-ish kid on the UK soul block. The sweet voiced singer/songwriter has been captivating crowds in various London and SE venues for a year or so now. Julie’s played places like The Jazz Cafe, The Wireless Festival, The Uprise Anti-Racism Festival and Soul-D-Out celebration.
Her voice has featured on a number of charting house singles…. like David April’s ‘Love My Life’ but right now Ms I is busy promoting her first proper solo EP that won release at the end of July. The mini album is ‘Just Julie’ and the title track is a lovely gentle, acoustic semi auto biographical thing that reminds me of India. Airie’s ‘Video’ – both in mood and message.
EP highlight is another acoustic flavour, ‘I’ll Be There’. This features some sweet, sweet harmonies that betray Julie’s time as an in-demand session singer.
Julie will be officially launching the EP @ The Fox and Firkin in Lewisham High Street on 27th September.
