Julie Felix......singer-songwriter, humanitarian and environmentalist......a very special woman!

 Julie’s current tour is a celebration of over 50 years as a singer songwriter and her belief in the power of music to enhance people’s lives and bring about change.......not forgetting her love of the rapport with audiences!  

In April this year, Julie appeared on BBC Radio 2 The Folk Show with Mark Radcliffe and after the show Mark posted this on twitter; “A  total honour to meet the legend that is Julie Felix – still performing, campaigning and creating at the age of 80. Inspirational.”

 It doesn’t end there though and two months later Julie was playing on the Acoustic Stage at Glastonbury; 30 years or so since performing on the Theatre Stage there for the first time.  

On the final day of Glastonbury, Julie was one of the guests on BBC Radio 6 Mark Radcliffe Live from Glastonbury.  Mark had a chat with Julie and played "La Elva Leva" a song from Julie's latest album, Rock Me Goddess

In 1964 Julie arrived in England after leaving California and hitchhiking through Europe with the guitar her father (a Mexican Mariachi musician) had given her.  It didn't take long before Julie took the seat as the resident singer on the amazingly popular TV Show ‘The Frost Report’, and quickly became a household name in the UK

Only four years after stepping on our shore, Julie is given her own TV series, Once More with Felix, the first colour series produced by the BBC that sold to virtually every country in the world.  Over three years Julie presented over 40 shows with guests that included The Kinks, Spike Milligan, Richard Harris, Leonard Cohen, Dusty Springfield, Donovan, Jimmy Page and many more...

Throughout the 60s and 70s Julie’s career flourished, and her music reflected her heartfelt beliefs and her love affair with nature.  In the 1980s she moved back to California and took a break from the music world.  An experience on a peace march in Central America in the late 80's inspired Julie to pick up her guitar and start singing again.  Two decades later of none stop activity, in October 2013 Julie was invited to Buckingham Palace to meet the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Camilla

What began for little Julie as simple home entertainment, as her father and his friends played Mariachi music into the small hours of the morning, has actually been this remarkable woman’s vocation for half a century......and fortunately for us.....it still is!
