Minneapolis native Julia Christi Ann is a singer-songwriter with roots in classic country and Americana folk, with a splash of blues for good measure. Julia was born and raised in Northeast, and after spending a couple of years in Kansas City, she returned to Minneapolis to pursue a music therapy degree at the University of Minnesota. Fast forward a couple of years, and she is now a board-certified music therapist by day, where she works with hospice patients in end-of-life care. Julia’s soulful voice haunts and inspires her audience, taking them on a journey through her own experiences of grief and loss. These are central themes in her upcoming studio work, where she poignantly puts words to personal sorrow while demonstrating the buoyancy of the human spirit.
