This San Francisco based singer-songwriter-guitarist releases her debut album after several years of high profile collaborations with Looq Records (as heard on the television show CSI). Her elastic, smoky alto brings sharply crafted lyrics to life in On to the Next, a blues-and-jazz-infused indie collection of 14 intimate songs. Giulian also skillfully plays all of the instruments on the album, including viola, autoharp and bass.
"Her voice...that''s something you won''t ever forget. It''s soft, sometimes a tad smoky, fearless, always sensual and soooo elastic."
"Sez Giulian has the soul of a poet and the voice of an angel...Her elastic inflections stretch from textured tones that comfort you like a warm and womanly embrace, to mildly disturbing deep vocal etchings... [Her] guitar playing exercises finesse, and the rhythm blends percussive embellishments to the already existing beats that were born in the mind of this talented young chanteuse."
"The singer/songwriter style is personal and well crafted...She is a strong artist."
