Jully Black

This Canadian-born, triple-threat (singer/songwriter/performer) loves to share her talents and has an enthusiasm for music that is unparalleled. Her charming attitude and charismatic personality has helped propel her career and reach milestones that most artists struggle to achieve in a lifetime – opening for Kayne West in Singapore, being hand picked to perform for the Queen, headlining the opening ceremonies at the 2010 Winter Olympics, winning multiple Juno awards, penning songs for the likes of Missy Elliot, Nas and Destiny’s Child as well as performing alongside artists such as Jay-Z, Sean Paul, Kardinal Offishall and Alicia Keys. Most recently, she has been added to line-up for the 2012 Jamaica Jazz and Blues Fest alongside Ceelo Green, Celine Dion, Damian Marley, and others. There is no question as to how she has achieved the status of “Canada’s Queen of R&B”, a title given to her by her fans and peers.

Her new, soon to be released album, entitled (8)IGHT, boasts a fresh, energetic and soulful sound, something that has been described as “the future of soul”. Traditionally, Jully is from the school of R&B, with influences like Lauren Hill & Tina Turner, she has combined these sounds with the super futuristic beats and rhythms provided by the album’s sole producer YoungPete Alexander and the funky creative writing and arrangement skills of Luther Brown.
