Former Somerset House Studios resident


Artist, musician and producer from Manchester, signed to Warp records.

Somerset House Studios
New Wing

Inspired by industrial landscapes, wastelands and Brutalist architecture, Julie Campbell is an artist who seeks out unusual or dilapidated spaces in which to record and make work. Her post-punk influenced debut album, Nerve Up and recent funk and dance-inspired follow-up Hinterland both received widespread critical acclaim. All four singles released from Hinterland reached the 'A' Playlist on BBC6 Music and she received a Sky Arts nomination for Best Breakthrough Artist. Julie also works in other mediums which complement and offset her music including installations, immersive live events and video.

"Vibrant and urgent combination of genealogy and vision – and it is this that truly makes it a masterpiece."

Julie is resident inside the navy’s former Rifle Range. Her time with the studios is focused on developing, writing and recording new music with this unusual space as a context, and working with new analogue equipment.
