Vocalist, improviser and songwriter, Julie O'Hara has been an impressive contributor to our jazz scene for over twenty years. Julie has earned her reputation for her prodigious activity in jazz and music clubs, national and international music and jazz festivals as a versatile and committed vocalist and songwriter. You will find her on recordings as wide as The Cat Empire and as close as her own "Use the Force".
Her current project, 'Unobtainium', features original bepop, latin jazz & vocalese neo-soul music penned over years of careful research of impressive horn solo's and creative music making.
