Bio:

Julia Marks is a multifaceted artist. Singer, song writer, lyricist, MC, music producer and voice diapason, she continues to display a stunning musicality which has developed across a lifetime dedicated to her art. From her beginnings in the church choir at the tender age of seven, to her background in pop-jazz vocal art at the private Moscow studio of acting, her professional singing career is just as eclectic as her voice. To this day, she continues to study different vocal techniques within rock, jazz hip-hop and soul, always striving for her audience’s wow-reaction, especially whilst debuting her impressive vocal ranges. As well as featuring in many jazz and rock bands as a vocalist, becoming well-known on the major Russian city live circuit, she also took part in the infamous Russian Hip Hop battle InDaBattle during 2010, becoming the first female to reach the competition’s finale. However, despite her love for hip-hop she began to understand the necessity of diluting her vocal parts to develop more recitative. Julia Marks has been heavily present within the world of drum & bass. Having performed at some of the biggest drum & bass events in Russia – including World of Drum & Bass and Bassland, she’s also taken part on releases for labels such as Program, Lifted Music and Renegade Hardware and for artists such as Magnetude (where she is instated as their Exclusive Vocalist). Working with some of the most notorious players within the scene, she became a staple part of their back catalogues, further pushing herself across a wide variety of platforms and tastes. Her undeniable musicality was also clear on her offering for Dutch label Fokuz Recordings, proving yet again that her enviable vocal talent could fit a wide-ranging set of moulds. / /Julia Marks is a rarity; an artist who brings real meaning to the term and a name that will be on the lips of many in the near future./
