'Musical performance rides the current
of what’s swirling around us, embracing a diversity of ways
in which we can grapple with the world around us.’
Julie Michels was born in New Jersey and raised throughout Europe and the USA, before settling in Toronto, Canada. Her travels instilled a wanderlust not only for different countries, but for diversified cultures and distinct musical genres, all of which helped mold her career in music.

Her next CD is set to be recorded in New York. A re-interpretation of the songs of Lyle Lovett, it will be produced by Grammy Award nominated Mark Ruffin.

While attending the University of Wisconsin in Madison, ultimately receiving a Bachelor of Political Science degree with a minor in Macro Economics, Julie studied jazz with the bassist, Richard Davis.

After graduation, Julie traveled to Scotland where she worked as a singer for six months. The following year, she performed at jazz clubs throughout Europe including the Jazz Vortex in London, the Cafe Gorilla in Paris and the Jazz Cafe in Brussels. She performed in Germany, Italy and Holland as well as appearing at the Glasgow Music Festival, the Bridgeport Music Festival, the Aaran Musical Festival on the Isle of Aaran, the North Sea Jazz Festival and Utrecht Festival in Holland

‘It’s a real pleasure to share the stage with Julie Michels…one of the Jazz Masters!’
Sherif Elian, Principal Bass, Cairo Symphony Orchestra

‘Julie Michels possesses a huge voice with amazing control, both in range of volume, expression and wonderful tonal effects which she uses like an instrument.’
Bob Scott, The Examiner

‘Michels is a powerful, gritty, all-in singer, with the power and confidence needed to belt the music out.’
Peter Hum, The Ottawa Citizen

‘Risky, imaginative, fresh, and fun loving.’
Roger Levesque, The Edmonton Journal

DAVID (DAVE) YOUNG (bassist) was born on January 29, 1940 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. He began studying the guitar and violin when he was 10 years old, but a turn of events at his first gig (a university dance band) compelled him to pick up the bass. Educated as both a jazz and a classical player, Young’s elegant performances with the late guitarist Lenny Breau are legendary. He was a member of the Lenny Breau Quartet in live performance and recording for five years from 1961 to 1966. Dave Young’s professional relationship with jazz giant Oscar Peterson spanned three decades during which he played in the Oscar Peterson Trio in appearances all over the world up until Peterson’s death.

Young is equally comfortable with symphonic work and acoustic jazz. As classical artist, he was the principal Double Bassist for a number of years with the Edmonton and Winnipeg Symphony Orchestras as well as with the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra. As a jazz artist, he has collaborated with the genre’s brightest luminaries including Oscar Peterson, Clark Terry, Zoot Sims, Joe Williams, Oliver Jones, Lenny Breau, Rob McConnell, Phil Dwyer, Michel Lambert, John Hicks, Mulgrew Miller, Tommy Flanagan, Ellis Marsalis, Barry Harris, Kenny Barron, Cyrus Chestnut, Cedar Walton, Peter Appleyard, Harry “Sweets” Edison, Kenny Burrell, Hank Jones, Nat Adderly, Gary Burton, Barney Kessel, Ed Bickert, Ranee Lee, Marcus Belgrave, Don Thompson, and James Moody.

In 2011, Young released Aspects of Oscar with his quintet featuring Dave Young, Kevin Turcotte, Reg Schwager, Robi Botos and Terry Clarke. The album was nominiated for a JUNO Award. In 2012, the Dave Young / Terry Promane Octet released their recording Octet Volume One, which was nominated for JUNO Award.

As an educator, Dave Young has taught at numerous music seminars and jazz clinics and is currently a faculty member of The University of Toronto. In 2003, Young was in residence at the Music Department of St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, conducting bass master classes and performing.
