SINGER AND ACOUSTIC GUITARIST

biography

Julie Freeman is a guitarist and vocalist available for performances in the northeast Florida area. You may have heard her perform in the beaches area at Arts in the Park, Art Walk's Six Songbirds, or at many local restaurants entertaining patrons. An accomplished vocalist and perhaps Jacksonville's best female finger style player, her breadth of genres ranges from folk to pop and from rock to country.

 

Julie began performing as a solo singer/guitarist in junior high when she got her first instrument. She says that she picked up a guitar at 13 years old and it never occurred to her to put it down. Four decades later, she is quite an accomplished acoustic player.

 

Julie's love of singing began even younger and led her to sing in children's and youth choirs, talent shows, high school chorus, and pursue college voice studies. She was even chosen at age 18 to sing with the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra during a performance at her school. Julie continued her vocal training at Florida State College and Jacksonville University.

 

An accountant by day, Julie spends her evenings and weekends performing a uniquely diverse program of songs and instrumentals. A gift for numbers and an over-sized creative streak provides the foundation that has led her to her greatest passion - music.

A child of the early sixties, Julie's music is representative of an era that often blended folk, rock and pop into its own unique sound. She plays and sings music from multiple genres and eras spanning the 60s through the 80s and early 90s. She has the range and warmth to sing Joni Mitchell, Stevie Nicks, Carrie Underwood, Dan Fogelburg, Harry Chapin and many others. A friend described her voice as 'hot buttered honey.'
