Julia's Bio

"Perhaps the best way to explain [Julia] would be if Norah Jones, Tom Waits, Billie Holiday, and Lyle Lovett had a musical orgy and let you watch behind a curtain of burning lace and a whiskey waterfall.  I'll bring the unfiltered cigarettes, you bring your soul."  - Out of Print Magazine

Julia Othmer is an award-winning singer/songwriter who has been captivating audiences for the past decade with her energetic live performances. Her critically acclaimed album, Oasis Motel, put her on the map and helped solidify her unique spot in the singer/songwriter landscape.  You may have seen Julia on the 2010 Lilith Fair tour (alongside such greats as Sarah McLachlan, Emmylou Harris, Heart, and Ingrid Michaelson) or watched her powerful contribution to the "First Day Project." Perhaps you have heard one of her songs featured on such shows as Switched at BirthThe Lying Game, Army Wives, Party of Five, or DeGrassi: The Next Generation.   She has also shared the stage with artists as Regina Spektor, Amos Lee, and John Waite among others.

Julia has won numerous awards for her songwriting, including several Honorable Mentions at the Billboard World Song Contest, Semifinalist at the International Songwriting Competition, and Runner-Up at the Singer/Songwriter Awards.

She is currently recording a follow-up album slated for release in late 2014 and collaborating on a film soundtrack slated for 2015.

Julia is passionate about books, the New York Times Sunday Crossword Puzzle, and cooking feasts for friends.  She is currently living, loving, and playing in Los Angeles (with her beloved pitbull, Mary), though a part of heart will always be in her hometown of Kansas City.
