Julia Biel

This amounted to a concert of more than ordinary gaiety.

Julia Biel played piano and guitar, performing songs from her previous and a forthcoming album. Her band made a favourable impression, due in particular to the forceful and discerning playing of the drummer. He was very definitely with it.

The songs had a jazz, blues, soulful flavour though Biel’s passion was all her own. In truth, she could have done with a fuller or a less saturnine audience. But, even so, Biel showed enough gallant heart to make you hanker to hear her new songs.
