The endearing warmth and charm of Julia Mark's music and voice has quickly made her a favorite in the Boston music scene. As a singer-songwriter and pianist, she creates lyric-driven, optimistically dissonant songs about life on the moon, loss of memory, shifting homes, and palindromes. With the songwriting penchant of Carole King and the soft-easy vocal of Suzanne Vega, Julia is for the listener who likes to transcend into a musical and visual scene. Julia Mark was a 2016 Iguana Music Fund grantee, spurring the creation of her first full-length album, “Gemini" (January 2018).

Julia Mark is the type of artist who makes me wish my parents forced piano lessons on me as a kid. Her hands effortlessly dance across the ivories and her voice is equal parts pure power and delicate grace. You may have seen her singing with the Ruby Rose Fox band and killing it on the harmony end of things, but you should definitely get out to this show and see what this gal packs in her own songwriting and performance."

I have literally seen people's breath taken away when they first hear Julia Mark. Her combination of piano chops, soaring pin-point vocals, tightly woven evocative lyrics, and sweet but confident stage presence grabs her audiences' attention and doesn't let it go until the last note rings. No flaws in her game!
