Julie Anne is one of a kind! You will be entranced by Julie Anne's own personal style that sets her aside from all others. Influenced by the most distinguished jazz vocalists such as Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn, Julie London and Peggy Lee, Julie Anne pays tribute to them by keeping these classic jazz standards alive. The quality of her voice, her unique phrasing and interpretations make Julie Anne one of the top jazz performers around. Julie Anne has a degree in Music Education from the University of Arizona. She taught choir, general music and theatre locally for eight years. However, her biggest love is singing. Julie Anne has been singing in Tucson for over 20 years. You may have seen Julie Anne at many Tucson Jazz Society events such as the Diva’s of Jazz or Tribute to Women in Jazz concerts, “Tucson Swings!” dances and concerts, "Triple Threat!" concerts in which she sings and dances with two other talented ladies Crystal Stark and Katherine Byrnes, Cushing Street, Dove Mountain, the piano bar at McMahon’s Steak House, Ventana Canyon, Kingfisher, Blue Fin, Westward Look, The Gas Light Theatre, Starr Pass resort, Green Valley, Saddlebrooke, Sun City/Phoenix, Old Pueblo Grill or any number of other concerts, events, conventions or weddings. Julie Anne performs with just a piano or guitar, a trio, quartet or a full Big Band. Her preference is an 8 piece band with horns. That really swings!!! "Hey, Daddy!" is now available for purchase or download. It was formally released October 16, 2007. "Hey, Daddy!" was chosen to be one of the top 25 indie music releases of 2007 by Indie-Music.com!!!!
