Press Text
The Julie-Ann Band are a 5 piece original, Indy/Rock/Celtic/Folk band from Edinburgh, with a bit of a twist.

Catchy choruses and elegany melodies that stand out from the crowd.

The band released their first EP in July 2017 and have just recorded their first single, "When The Bells Go" which was released for Hogmanay 2018.

Julie-Ann’s first influence in music was playing the bagpipes at the age of 7. This gave her a good set of lungs for her future singing career.

2017 was a busy one for the band, playing the BBC Castle tent stage at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, doing their EP Launch Scottish Tour and supporting Carly Connor at King Tut's Wah Wah Hut in Glasgow for her Single Launch.


The Scotsman Newspaper - Unsung heroine Julie-Ann Neill, a public safety officer at the city council, is one of those unsung figures working behind the scenes to ensure the smooth running of Edinburgh in August. Her day job involves everything from the licensing of the hundreds of pop-up venues to the latest counter-terrorism measures in and around the Royal Mile. But she finds the time to front her own indie-rock-folk band, who landed a plum slot playing at the BBC’s pop-up studio at George Heriot’s School on Saturday. Her work with the festivals, and her involvement in ensuring the city’s main public clocks run to time, have already inspired one song: When The Bells Go. Her inside track on this month’s festivals may have inspired even more new material by the time the Julie-Ann Band appear at Underbelly, Bar Brig and Sips in the City later this month.

Small Music Network -
With a packed crowd from the offset, Julie Ann and her ensemble took to the stage for her debut appearance in Glasgow, which just happened to be at King Tuts of all places. Among the range of highlights, there was Money which featured an enjoyable chorus, Tough Love had an elegant melody and guitars that added an extra layer, and the Hogmanay- themed When The Bells Go was really charming. We felt it was a very pleasant performance and that Julie Ann had achieved success in her first outing here in the city.

Discovery Music:-
First up were The Julie Ann Band. Apart from knowing they are from Edinburgh, we hadn't had the chance to listen to any of their music before the gig. However they were very good and a band we will be keeping an eye out for in the future!

BBC EdFest:-
Thanks to @DJBobbyB and the Julie-Ann Band for entertaining us in the Castle Tent tonight!
