Biography

Classical crossover and inspirational singer Julia Wade has been hailed by critics as “the female equivalent of Josh Groban.” [Inside World Music]  Spanning diverse musical styles, Julia has performed nationally and internationally as a concert artist, as well as in opera, cabaret and musical theatre, including The Rome Opera and Carnegie Hall.

Julie Gold, Songwriter of From A Distance

I fell in love with this album within seconds of hearing the tinkling music and the angel voice of Julia Wade in the glowing tribute to God of the title song ... Wade with her undeniable inspirational devotion is the perfect executioner. This is definitely an album you will want to hear EVERY DAY.

Laurie Lawson, Electronic Link Journey, NYC

[Come To Me As A Bird is] performed exquisitely by the wonderful Julia Wade, whose heartbreakingly crystalline soprano and soaring passion matches the purity of the song's spirit.

Paul Zollo, Music Reviewer (Quote from AmericanSongwriter.com)

"Story For The Ages" is a musical rendition of the teachings of Christ from "The Coming" through the Resurrection. Soprano Julia Wade takes you on that inspirational journey with a voice so clear and pure there’s no room for doubt about her belief in the message and its source.

Laurie Lawson, Electronic Link Journey, NYC

I have never in all my life heard a voice like yours and your husband and you should be nominated for a Grammy Award for the Best Spiritual CD of the next decade.

Celine Rioux, Canada

I think music is a universal language and Julia's "Alabado sea Dios" speaks to me very deeply ... I received this CD [Alabado sea Dios] when my country Kenya was undergoing a very unharmonious and unhappy time. I believe her voice echoing over the seeming chaos has been, and continues to be a most healing effect to this city just as it has soothed and healed me... I would like to thank Julia again and again and again. Thanks. Asante sana Julia!! ;)
