Julie Fowlis is a multi-award winning Scottish Gaelic singer and the voice of the theme to Disney Pixar’s Oscar-winning animated film Brave (“Touch the Sky”). With a career spanning five studio albums and numerous high profile collaborations, her ‘crystalline’ and ‘intoxicating’ vocals have enchanted audiences around the world.
Nominated as ‘Folk Singer of the Year’ at the 2018 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, and ‘Best Artist’ at the Songlines World Music Awards, Julie is a warm and engaging live performer who has graced stages around the world, from village halls in the Highlands to stages in New York, The Philharmonie de Paris and Shakespeare’s Globe in London. She has collaborated with pop stars including James Taylor and Mary Chapin Carpenter, as well as Celtic folk musicians such as the Quebecois band Le Vent Du Nord, Galician singer Rosa Cedrón, and Welsh vocalist Julie Murphy.
There are some voices that carry much more than a melody. They transport you to another place, give you goose flesh and make magic out of thin air. Julie Fowlis has just such a voice. - Evening Standard- London
