Julia Feltham is an ocean child. A Nova Scotian folk musician who fancies herself a viking, and loves passing on her East Coast joie de vivre: Her own fiddler claims she has ‘the voice of a mythical celtic siren.’ She is also known for impromptu and playful Motown, Nirvana and Tupac covers on cello she wants to spread a little joy, and uses music to pass on the moral to her own story.
A proud Nova Scotian, nerd and Atlantic Canadian. Her melodies often capture a thoughtful joy, and are reflective of her love of life, people, Nova Scotia, myth and legend. Her first album was released summer 2011 -- just before she took on another cross-Canada tour.
Ms. Feltham resides in Halifax, and was born to and raised by Newfoundlanders. Heavily influenced by her Newfoundlander/Nova Scotian heritage, her music-enthusiast father and her own ecclectic musical tastes: Her music is often acoustic and her sound is often compared to the likes of Portishead, Kate Bush, Regina Spektor, Norah Jones, Janis Joplin,Joanna Newsome, Jorane and Joni Mitchell.
A multi-instrumentalist -- who is partial to singing and writing songs with guitar & cello, but occasionally plays on piano & barritone saxophone, harp and any instrument she gets her hands on -- she has happily begun living the life of a traveling minstrel while taking on the world.
