She has a long history in the music industry, though mostly as a “second job”, with her major career being in adult education. As a vocalist, she pays tribute to artists such as Patsy Cline, Peggy Lee, Connie Francis, Skeeter Davis, Helen Shapiro, Sandie Shaw, as well as many mail artists of the 50s/60s. Below is a brief overview of her experience. 1963 – Joy Boys (Sydney) – dances.

Appeared on first ever Australian New Faces, Channel 9 – 1964, singing Helen Shapiro’s “Little Miss Lonely”. 1964 – Brisbane: Cloudland Ballroom (private functions) promoter Ivan Dayman. Mersey City (Festival Hall) with acts such as Tony Worsley & Blue Jays, Russ D Wylie & the Kodiacs.

Currently working with her husband on keyboards and using professional backing materials to achieve the right sound for the eras represented in song. Julie has a deep slightly husky voice, which lends itself to a broad cross section of music.
