I was first exposed to this singer for the work she did in Pixar's Brave. I sought on her album after that. She has such a lovely, sweet voice, and it's hard (as an American fan) to find Scottish music instead of Irish-Scottish music. I should also add, since other reviews can be a little confusing--Fowlis is singing in Gallic (Scottish Gaelic), not Celtic/Irish Gaelic. Usually pronounced gal-ick to show the difference. She's a Scottish lass, not an Irish one. :)

Chan eil an Gaidhlig agam, ach tha an CD eachtach. (Probably not right, cobbled from limited knowledge of Gaelic and Irish) Julie's voice is always tuneful, and restful on the quiet tracks. The instrumebtal tracks are also excellent. Despite understanding hardly any of the words, I really enjoy the CD. emusic, isn't there any way you can include the sleeve notes with downloads ? I assume of I bought the CD I'd get translations of these songs !

I can't speak celtic, have only ever spent six days on the Shetlands but she could sing in Mandarin, Maori or Moldavian and i would sure to be be entranced. Though an english language album one day would still be great.

They Say All Music Guide

Julie Fowlis’ debut marked her as a major force in Scots music, and Uam, which means “from me,” her third outing, simply burnishes and adds to the legend. Whether with a band or simply accompanied by a bidhran as she is on “Thig Am Bata,” her voice is a thing of real beauty. One highlight is “Bothan Airigh Am Briagh Raithneach,” which she performed on the Transatlantic Sessions, and which gets a royal treatment here, her band fleshed out by Phil Cunningham, Jerry Douglas, and the second voice of the wonderful Eddi Reader, turning the love song into something of real hope and joy. Whether on a slow piece like “A Chatrion Og” or a waulking song like “M’Fhearann Saidhbhir,” she has a superbly expressive voice that cuts to the heart, not only of the melody, but also to the emotion of a song. She’s quite handy on the whistle, too, as she proves on “A Chiad Cheum” and elsewhere. But it’s her voice that’s her fortune, and it’s displayed to glittering effect here. The backing is always sympathetic, framing the song and the singer like jewels. She’s cast her net wider than her native Uist, but no matter the origin of the piece (including originals), they’re treated with real delicacy. A standout disc. – Chris Nickson
