Giulia Cancedda born in Chiavari (Genoa), Italy in 1991, I began studying classical guitar in the music section of the Secondary School, performing for the first time at the age of eleven, singing and playing by myself. After three years I started to replace the classical guitar with the acoustic to perform, and I studied electric guitar for a year.
At the age of thirtheen my passion for singing became stronger than ever and I began to take classes at the “Music Academy in Chiavari", winning in 2005 a scholarship .
From 2007 to 2009 I attended the Academy "Roland Music School" and partecipated in several singing competitions: "Festival di San Teodoro", "Festival delle Due Riviere", "Festival di Saint Vincent" and "Superpass": I was among six finalists selected throughout Italy for the music section of the television program which was attended by Amii Stewart and famous italian singers.
By the age of seventeen I'm performing in the most prestigious Resorts and Hotels in the Eastern Liguria Riviera and on board of Yachts, singing an Italian and International repertoire, from Pop music to Jazz standards, Soul, R&B, Evergreen and Dance music (70s/80s/90s/00s).
In 2009 I became the vocal leader of the "Black Roses", entirely female rock band, formed by girls of age between 16 and 21. I recorded with them two albums in two years for a total of twenty new songs.
We partecipated at “Casa Sanremo”, event who ran parallell to the 60th Sanremo Festival, and we started in the same year our tour around Italy as guests star at: "Radio Bruno Summer Tour", “Festival Show”, “John Lennon Tribute Concert” in Milan, “Rai Demo Fest”, with famous Italian singers as: Stadio, Noemi, Zero Assoluto, Irene Grandi, Luca Barbarossa, Jalisse, Syria, Sonohra, Mario Venuti, Dolcenera, and international singers as Paul Young.
I decided to leave the band in 2013 and begin my solist career with the "Soultrain", with which proposed a pop/new soul repertoire. I also performed in acoustic trio with Nicola Bruno (electric bass) and Lorenzo Spinozzi (guitar), with whom I created the "Judy Winter Trio", promoting the project "Georgia On My Mind", remaking in blues/jazz style some of the songs of the Italian singer Giorgia.
In 2014 I teached modern singing at the Music Association “Franco Pucciarelli”, and in 2015 I worked with Francesca Faggioni to the musical project "ORFF", at the nursery school “Corso Millo" in Chiavari.
In March of the same year I obtained a diploma in jazz singing at the Conservatory of Music “Niccolò Paganini” in Genoa with the following vote: 110/110. There I studied for three years supplementary jazz piano.
From July to October 2015 I worked as a production singer at the theatre of village Bravo "Vila do Farol" (Ilha do Sal, Capo Verde.)
From March 2016 I have been living in London, performing in several pubs, hotels and musical events.
In September I was a finalist of "GIGS", the Mayor of London's Busking Competition.
I am currently attending a Master in Popular Music Performance at The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance (ICMP).
