Born and raised in the Ottawa Valley, Julie Corrigan is a soulful, country, pop, roots, singer/songwriter hailing from the small town of Shawville Quebec.  Julie is on the heels of releasing her first full length album The Language, recorded in Ottawa at Little Bullhorn Studios with producer Dave Draves (Kathleen Edwards, Howe Gelb).  The album also features distinguished musicians Fred Guignon on guitar, Peter Von Althen on drums, and Don Cummings on B-3 organ. 

 

Julie grew up on a farm along the Ottawa River.  On The Language Julie taps into these romantic whispers of her past, including stories of heartache, loss, tragedy, and a longing for going home.  Heading into the studio with nothing but the words and melodies written on her acoustic guitar, Dave Draves put his magical and creative talents into developing a sound for the record.  The result is an exquisite blend of roots, country, soul, pop, and something else in between.

 

2014 saw Julie open the Canadian Tulip Festival, tour Southern Ontario, and perform internationally on the Caribbean island of Barbados.  No stranger to social media, Julie has garnered over 2 million youtube video views, and as a result had the opportunity to share stages with notable artists such as Lisa Lavie and David Choi in Washington, DC.  Other opportunities have included performing in a band and individually at the National Arts Centre, Parliament Hill, and singing the national anthem for over 20,000 at Ottawa Race Weekend.

 

Armed with a unique voice, a strong passion for live performance, and brand new record "The Language" in tow, a promotional tour across Canada is in the works. 

 

2015/2016 will be a very exciting time and Julie hopes to shine that light a little brighter for anyone who will listen.
