Take Five With Julia Westbrook
Teachers and/or influences? Influences most certainly are Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland and Ella Fitzgerald.
I knew I wanted to be a musician when... ...I was growing up, my family always had jazz on the radio and I found myself singing along, then realized I wanted to pursue this line of music.
Favorite venue: So far I am quite new to performing with a jazz band, as all the singing I have done in the past was at festivals, singing Musical Theatre-based songs. It is only recently that I have had the honor of performing with an accomplished jazz band.
What is in the near future? Well, so far I have recorded my demo but am desperate to continue recording and hopefully meet good influences along the way!
