Julia Marty
From East to West

Julia Marty (Ioulia Vladimirovna Danshina) was born in Russia but her musical travels have taken her to the states where she now lives. Her heritage is very much alive and she sings traditional songs as well as her own on this debut. The lovely "Silken Grass" is one such traditional song and Marty sings beautifully and the arrangement's very pretty.

"All of this time" sung in English is lively, jazzy and tells of a love fated to be. The title song is an impassioned instrumental played on keyboard. Marty's skill at the instrument is obvious. "Dark Night" is a nice accapella song with Marty duetting with herself.

Marty's made a debut that's for anyone who likes good and unusual music.
