Raised between France and Canada, Julie Peel is both bilingual and a self-taught multi-instrumentalist. Though she’s only just about to release her debut album, Near The Sun, Julie is a veteran of the cover song having contributed tracks to a number of tribute albums for artists such as The Cure, The Pixies, Kim Deal and Neil Young. All high calibre artists, but Aimee Mann and Beth Orton more closely indicate what you can expect of her moving compositions, as is Anna Ternheim, with whom she shares drummer Andreas Dahlbäck.

The self-recorded, self-mixed and self-produced Near The Sun is due for release on September 22nd through American Laundromat Records, who have singled out album track ‘Unfold’ as a free download treat. Violins and cellos provide a textured backdrop to Julie’s dulcet, lightly accented English vocals, steeped in a warm duet with guesting vocalist Arnaud Rizo of delightful minimalist folk band London Must Fall, while Dahlbäck provides soft percussion and omnichord. Simultaneously rich and sweet, it reveals Julie Peel to be a talented, multi-skilled artist with a finely tuned sense of melancholic bliss. MP3 after the jump.
