“Superb night well done Julie and the band, the album is a great achievement ,all round the artistry and musical ability on show was excellent, you should all be very proud of your collective works, and I must also say the two performances prior to your set were superb,chris hutchinson…wow..thankyou for a great nights live and truly entertaining evening……the albums on in the car now…” (Stu, Worcester)

“The Julie July Band have emerged from Sandy Denny’s long shadow with a fine, attention-demanding studio album, Lady Of The First Light. Eleven folk-rock tracks, shared writing duties, excellent musicianship and top notch production values make for a very persuasive collection of original songs. Both lyrically and musically these folks know how to create an atmosphere and they’re clearly gifted storytellers. These songs should sound wonderful on stage, and one of them might just turn out to be a stone cold festival showstopper. There aren’t that many bands out there with wholly original material sounding quite as good as this. You might want to check them out”(Marcus – Fairporter)

“It was a lovely evening.  Your interpretations of Sandy’s songs were beautiful.  Also enjoyed hearing a sneak preview of your own material from the forthcoming CD. Please come back very, very soon!” (Andy)

 “Packed house at an iconic London Venue, congratulations on a really amazing gig! Really enjoyed it! Looking forward to seeing you back in London in April – at The Troubadour” (Adrian)

“Went to the gig @ Birmingham Kitchen Garden Café last night and really enjoyed the set.  Great musicianship and arrangements from the band and Julie’s superb vocal interpretations of Sandy Denny’s songbook really do justice to what is outstanding material.  A couple of original songs of their own were also performed and fitted into the set very well indeed.  Thanks for an evening of great live music and placing an outstanding musical legacy right where it should be, alive and well and being performed for people to enjoy. A rare opportunity not to be missed!” (Garry)

“Went to see the Julie July Band and have just got home. Very emotional experience.  The band played were excellent and Julie’s singing was superb. You close your eyes and you are listening to Fairport.  Thank you Julie July xx” (Steve)
