Born and raised in the Ottawa Valley, Julie Corrigan is a warm & soulful country singer/songwriter hailing from the small town of Shawville Quebec. Julie’s hometown has been a source of inspiration for many of her songs from her debut album The Language, recorded in Ottawa at Little Bullhorn Studios with producer Dave Draves. Through memories of growing up on a farm along the Ottawa River, her songs tells stories of heartache, loss, tragedy and a longing for going home.

Known for her stunning live performances around the Ottawa Valley and across Canada, Julie’s lifelong songwriting growth culminated in the summer of 2017 when she performed at Ottawa Bluesfest. She has also performed at the National Arts Centre and Blacksheep Inn, as well as other festival performances which include Marvest City Folk, Shawville Fair and Megaphono. Julie has been featured on CBC Radio and CKCU FM, in which "The Language" was the #1 played album of the year in 2015. Julie also hosts a live monthly event at Irene’s Pub in Ottawa called Girls to the Front Songwriters Circle, which showcases  women in music locally and beyond.

Julie is currently writing her follow-up album and preparing for a European tour in 2018, continuing to share her songs, stories and warm country glow.
