Born and raised in Odessa, Ukraine, but now calling Philadelphia her home, singer-songwriter Julia Levitina is bringing a global perspective to her unique brand of Americana. Subtly blending in Russian and French folk influences from her youth, her debut EP, Take Your Time Loving Me, is a snapshot of an artist who has literally and figuratively crossed oceans and seas to pursue her dreams. The record, co-produced with acclaimed Philadelphia singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, John Faye, and cut primarily at Cambridge Sound Studio in South Philadelphia, is about finding courage to go the distance while on a quest for fulfillment and self-discovery. Subsequently released single, Apricot Sky, recorded and engineered by another acclaimed singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Cliff Hillis, continues in the vein of Julia’s odd-ball feel-good folk-rock tunes, drawing its inspiration from the story of the Wright Brothers and the wonder of flight.
Julia’s musical influences include chanson française and the likes of Jacques Brel, Serge Gainsbourg and Francis Cabrel, as well as the great Russian bards, such as Vladimir Vysotsky and Aleksandr Dolsky. They find an unexpected home alongside her more current favorites, like Indigo Girls and Josh Ritter.
Julia has played the Tin Angel, World Café Live, the Grape Room and Bourbon & Branch in Philadelphia; Jamey’s House of Music and Burlap & Bean in Pennsylvania, and Chesapeake Arts Center in Baltimore, among others. She has performed at the 58th Philadelphia Folk Festival and at assorted venues in France and Italy.
