The winner of the Echo Jazz 2018 has made the leap from the internet to the stages of the world, has been touring almost constantly since then and has demonstrated with her career that jazz and fusion can also be considered a modern form of musical expression for the younger generation.

We are very happy to announce that Julia will hold a workshop at the Guitar Summit 2022 and will also be part of the All-Star-Band at the “Saturday Night in Concert” show.
