Julia Fordham: Concrete Love

Julia Fordham is an exceptional vocalist whose artistry sits on the fine line between jazz singing and well-crafted pop. Her seventh recording, "Concrete Love," features notable co-writing, production and studio talent – Larry Klein, Gary Clark, Dean Park, Indie.Arie – and delivers sleek, soulful ballads and love songs. It also finds Fordham exploring her voice’s lower end, making the performances even more relaxed and sultry.
