MA GRADUATE RELEASES FIRST ALBUM AFTER MOVING TO DUBAI
CATEGORIES: SCHOOL OF ARTS, MEDIA AND CREATIVE TECHNOLOGY
Music Performance alumnus has released her first album after moving to Dubai in 2019.
Julie E Gordon graduated from the University of Salford with a MA in Music Performance in 2019. Since then, Julie has moved to Dubai and produced, written, composed and performed her first album HOME.
After graduating Julie moved to the UAE for work, she said: “Moving to the UAE has to be one of the best decisions I’ve made this side of the 21st century. I moved here immediately after graduating in 2019. After experiencing the world through the lens of music, I felt compelled to take up an opportunity to work with local citizens here in Dubai.
“A very close friend of mine encouraged me to take a position as a Faculty in Applied media at a government-run educational institution. She had already been here from 2015 and she had already made clear that it was life-changing, and that the opportunities to grow as a creative in Dubai were vast. After completing my Masters in Music Performance, I applied for the role and was accepted. I was slightly anxious, after reading up about the rules and restrictions, I asked myself would it work? Well 2 years deep, I have to say, it’s been a journey, I’ve met some incredible people, mostly locals, but I feel I’m on an international stage, with a beautiful collective of people from around the world. I’m still learning more about myself each day I’m here, I’ll never look back.”
Julie’s background is in soul, jazz and gospel; however, she specializes in Neo soul and the blues. She uses her experiences from live performances to produce a collection of music with influences from EDM, drum and bass and soulful house.
She has found that one of her favorite things about living and working in Dubai is having creative freedom and being able to work independently. Julie said: “I have produced, written, composed, performed and mastered my current album HOME. This is such an achievement. Since working as an academic, I was driven to harness my skills and personal experiences from the UK to focus on my creative endeavours here in the UAE, which I continue to do. The opportunities are such that you are encouraged to work hard to achieve your desired goals. My faith has played an instrumental part in this.”
The musician who was originally from Dudley, has collaborated with bands across the UK and internationally. In 2010 Julie released her first EP “Deep Inside” with producer Zamali under 'Timewarp Music' and toured with Happy Monday’s singer Shaun Ryder and his band SWR in 2011.
You can find Julies first album HOME on all digital platforms.
