Julia Biel

Julia Biel is a British singer and songwriter and musician.

Julia Biel won the title Perrier Vocalist of the Year in 2000. In 2002 she was invited to join the F-IRE Collective, and her first band including Sebastian Rochford on whose Polar Bear project she has also featured, drew largely from its ranks. In 2005 she released her self-produced debut album 'Not Alone' (2005) which featured songs co-written with guitarist Jonny Phillips. In 2006 she was nominated in the 'Rising Star' category of the BBC Jazz Awards.

Second album 'Love Letters and Other Missiles' was released internationally in 2015[1] after the previous year's EP release of 'Nobody Loves You Like I Do'. These releases featured self-penned material and were produced by Idris Rahman. She performs accompanying herself on piano or electric guitar with backing from bass and drums and tours extensively in the UK and abroad.[2]

Formerly the singer of a now defunct project Unity, she came onto the radar of Everything But The Girl producer Ben Watt who released their EP Love in the Dead of Night on his Buzzin Fly label (2004). Subsequently, Watt invited Biel to collaborate on other material, a single of his "Guinea Pig" (2008) and also "Bright Star" (2010),[3] a three way collaboration between Watt, Biel and German producer Stimming.
