DALLAS— Julie Johnson steps on to the stage to perform the songs of Patsy Cline for the School of the Arts Fall Spotlight Performance at Brookhaven College on Aug. 28 at 8 p.m. As Billboard Magazine declares, “This is a voice that demands your attention.”
A country music natural, this sixth-generation Texan has been singing since she was only 3 years old. Born and raised in Whitewright, a small town near Dallas, Julie says she never thought of doing anything but performing. She has entertained thousands in the stage sensation, Always, Patsy Cline,” and she’ll be bringing her same love for this artist to the stage at the Performance Hall. “I Fall to Pieces,” “Walkin’ After Midnight” and “Crazy” are just a few of the beloved songs made famous by singing legend Patsy Cline.
After earning a theater arts degree from Austin College, Julie began making her mark on Broadway, film, television and regional theater, with a loyal and growing following in New York, Virginia, Dallas/Fort Worth and beyond. Of her performances, The Dallas Morning News says, “Ms. Johnson can sing anything.” Whether she’s performing with one musician or a seven-piece band, Julie gives her audiences everything she has.
Julie has had two album releases, “All Grown Up... So Far” and “More Than Half Way,” and she co-wrote several of the songs with fellow Texan Sonny Franks. The music pulls together Julie’s influences of country, bluegrass and roadhouse rhythm and blues.
