    this was my first time working with Julia and not the last. Julia is a solid singer-songwriter that undoubtedly excels at harmony. I look forward to the next time I work with her.

    We pinged Julia for some additional work on our track and she delivered (once again) quickly with the top-notch vocals we were hoping for! Thank you!

    Julia was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. She was a great communicator from the initial interaction and provided regular updates as she worked on her ideas. We are delighted with the vocal tracks that she provided for us - strong lyrics, great melodies and clever backing vocal and counter-melody arrangements for our track. She's inspired us to work even harder to make the song worthy of her vocal contributions! Thanks Julia! :)

    It was wonderful working with Julia especially because I dug the music so much. She was very detailed and efficient when it came to listening to my production and giving me notes. She has a clear vision of what she wants her sound to be and it's great to work with someone who knows how to communicate well. I would definitely recommend working with Julia, she's dope!

    Julie is the real deal. I've been working with her on a series of projects over the past few months and every single time I am floored by her musicianship, her communication and her imagination. I recently brought her a song I was working on that desperately needed lyrical and melodic help and she took it to the next level, making it one of my favorite songs I've ever worked on.
