About this event

Genre: Pop/Jazz

Julia started writing her own songs and performing them at local folk clubs in the south coast of England when she was 14. A few years later she was invited to be a guest singer with the UK’s National Youth Jazz Orchestra which sparked a lifelong love of the Jazz genre. When she was 16 Julia started working at Radio Victory in Portsmouth where she loved being in the studio singing jingles and doing the voice overs for commercials.

In 1988 Julia signed with Virgin/Circa Records and released her debut album simply titled, Julia Fordham. The album, which featured her top 40 single Happy Ever After, reached No.20 in the UK chart and earned her a platinum disc. The album also charted in the US reaching No.118 on the Billboard 200 chart. The single Happy Ever After reached the No.1 spot at the top of the charts in Japan, where she has recorded TV adverts for Toyota and where she still regularly tours.

In 1989 Julia’s follow up album Porcelain became her landmark work, charting not only in the UK (No.13) and Japan, but also the US (No.74 in the US top 100) and Europe. The album featured some of her most well known songs including Porcelain, Girlfriend and Lock And Key. Already a big name on the live circuit, Julia’s fan base continued to grow and her Porcelain tour saw her sell out the biggest halls in the UK, including dates at London’s Hammersmith Odeon.
