Julia Pinckney Jones Julia Pinckney Jones

Julia started singing classic jazz with her family at about age 12. After a lengthy detour through light opera, musical theatre, top 40, hard rock, disco, alt-country, R&B, reggae and neo-soul, she has taken all the best from her eclectic career and brought it back home. JPJQ feels like that joyful homecoming. Her voice is an unapologetic departure from the “smoky voiced” female crooners the jazz world has come to expect. She chooses to show off the power of her upper register, allowing her to create a strong, joyful sound that is influenced as much by Aretha as it is by Ella.
