Brought up on North Uist in Scotland's Outer Hebrides, Fowlis has been a proud standard bearer for Gaelic music and culture over the course of a solo career which has spanned three highly acclaimed studio albums. Gach Sgeul - Every Story, her new album, is a carefully selected collection of songs from Gaelic Scotland.
Traditional songs presented with new musical accompaniments, this record is all about the songs, and all about the story. With lush accompaniments and arrangements this record really showcases the strength and maturity of Julie's voice; a change, she says, which has come after having two children - 'I feel now that this is the true sound of my voice.'
