She sounds like a perfect mixture of Billie Holiday, Björk, and Amy Winehouse. Julia Biel’s voice is movingly tender yet also striking, vulnerable, and raw. With her poetic and lyrical music, this multi-talented young artist from London is one of the festival’s big discoveries. With her new program, Biel takes a melodic look at contemporary life and love.
