Julie had her first taste of the stage at age five, singing with mother's band around the Chicagoland area. At age fifteen, after touring and recording professionally, she performed on Star Searchhosted by the late Ed McMahon. After high school, she attended the American Musical and Dramatic Academy (AMDA) in New York city. She then toured Europe in the musical HAIR and traveled the world as a singer/dancer with Royal Caribbean International. You can see or hear Julie on many national commercials and jingles, and hear her as a guest on many Chicago musician's albums. She also lends her voice to Chicago-based band Hey Jimmy, and plays guitar and sings her material solo in clubs, festivals, and at corporate events. Julie is thrilled to be a part of the Lt. Dan Band, and excited to bring her spirit and positivity to shows at home and abroad.
