Nelson Arts Festival presents JULIA DEANS & BAND

Aotearoa New Zealand

As one of New Zealand's most iconic performers, Julia Deans' heartfelt songs have seen her transition from a household name as front-person for Fur Patrol, to an impressive solo artist.

Deans' solo material has been embraced with critical acclaim and rave reviews, and her recently released album We Light Fire is no exception. The title track is "absolutely fantastic. It's sparse, subtle, lyrically elegant and perfectly balanced." JACQUIE WALTERS, MUSIC.NET.NZ

For the Festival, Julia and her new band will take Nelson audiences on a winding inside tour of the new album.

"Yep, she can sing, and when she soars it's a spine-tingling thing, because it's all real." GARY STEEL, METRO MAGAZINE

"Julia Deans is a rock and roll goddess." ALEX BEHAN, MUSIC 101, RNZ
