From East to West
Are you tired of music that all sounds the same, from track to track, from artist to artist? Want to hear more than three cords in predictable progressions? Do you wonder sometimes if the artist knows how monotonous that drum machine sounds? Would you for once like to enjoy real vocal talent instead of some noises from a pretty face that were forced through harmonizers and pitch correctors until a "marketable" product was synthesized? Are you fed up with noise that insults your intelligence as well as your ears? THEN CONTINUE ON. YOU ARE ABOUT TO EXPERIENCE MUSIC AS IT SHOULD BE: PURE... HONEST... INTELLIGENT... ENGAGING... MUSIC THAT SPEAKS TO YOUR SOUL. This is Julia Marty. Julia Marty (born Ioulia Vladimirovna Danshina) grew up in the former Soviet Union and began her musical training at age six. The daughter of an accomplished pianist and choirmaster, she studied classical piano and graduated from the Rostov College of Music in Russia. Julia's career quickly shifted to vocal music when she was asked to audition for the popular Russian folk group, Balalaika. Her talents propelled her through the very competitive levels of Russian folk music and culminated with the internationally acclaimed Don Cossacks. Julia has performed in France, Germany, Spain, South Korea, and Canada, and in the United States, where she toured under the sponsorship of Columbia Artists in over fifty major cities. In 2001, Julia decided to remain in the States, where she now lives with her husband and daughter in central Missouri. She has just completed her first CD, "From East to West", and is actively composing and arranging for her next. Her style is eclectic and her talent diverse, consisting of original contemporary adult music in English and Russian, as well as Russian folk music, instrumentals and a capella works.
