Being one of the founding members of Rasputina and having made a name as the cellist of Antony and the Johnsons, Julia Kent spent years performing and recording with other artists. The list of her collaborations is long and features recognised pop and rock musicians like Devendra Banhart, Current 93 and Rufus Wainwright, just to name a few. She has further composed music for film scores as well as theatre and dance performances. However, the Canadian-born, New York City-based musician and her talent isn't limited to her various bands and collaborations, but further developed with her solo career. Her solo debut 'Delay' was released in 2007 and media acknowledged its rich melodies and the detailed arrangements that came with it. After touring both Europe and North America in support of it, Kent released an EP, 'Last Days in July', followed by her second LP, 'Green and Grey', in 2011. Her trademark loops, layered celli, electronic patterns and field recordings continued to explore a distinct style between new technologies and the naturally organic. The third an latest record 'Character' follows a similar path and was released on The Leaf Label in March 2013. Having played festivals like Primavera Sound in Barcelona, Donauinselfest in Austria, Meltdown in London and Unsound Festival in NYC, Kent is an experienced live performer and one can already look forward to her upcoming European tour scheduled for Spring 2014.
