After a five year wait, since her last studio album, Julienne Taylor – hailed as ” Scotland’s best female voice since Annie Lennox” is releasing her latest album, a Scottish-Italian collaboration. In 2013 Julienne teamed-up with Italian guitarist and songwriter Daniele Ferretti to work on some original songs, built around Daniele’s latin style guitar arrangements and Julienne’s vocals and lyrics. The project grew into a full album project of original songs and fresh interpretations of classic ballads. The album’s production turned into quite an international affair after first working in the picturesque Le Marche region of Italy for the initial recordings, it later moved to Nashville (USA), then Bath (England) and from there travelled Northwards to Edinburgh (Scotland). Highlights include the Celtic influenced arrangement of ‘A Thousand Years’ featuring the border pipes and low-whistles of Fraser Fifield, a new bossa arrangement of Julienne’s composition Toybox and the epic new track Dancing With The Oceans.
