Hailed as one of the most sophisticate, sensitive and dynamic singers today, Jule Budd began her professional career at the age of twelve, in a Catskill Mountains talent show where she caught the attention of producer/arrange Herb Bernstein.
Within six months Julie signed a major recording contract, and appeared on the “Merv Griffin Show” where she received a standing ovation from both the audience and the staff. Merv immediately took Julie under his wing, and from there she went on to appear on several major TV shows, including the “Tonight Show,” on which she has since been a frequent guest.
Throughout her career, Julie has co-starred with such legendary performers as: Frank Sinatra, Bill Cosby, Joan Rivers, George Burns, Bob Hope, Don Rickles, Liberace and Robert Klein, to name a few.
Julie has also headlined in her own one-woman show and appeared in concert in: Las Vegas, Atlantic City, New York’s Avery Fisher Hall, The London Palladium, Tel Aviv’s Israeli Arts Center and with major symphonies throughout the country.
Successful in her acting career, she has appeared in dramatic productions at New York’s Circle Repertory Theatre, and Playwright’s Horizons. In addition, Julie has starred in Neil Simon’s “They’re Playing Our Song, “ and also on Broadway in “Catskills On Broadway.” Julie made her film debut co-starring with Bill Cosby and Elliot Gould in Disney’s “The Devil and Max Devlin,” where she received glowing notices.
In September Julie will make a return appearance at the Algonquin Hotel in New York where she will perform her one-woman show. Following that she will continue her one-woman performances all over the country while promoting her newest album, Pure Imagination, which is now available on Touchwood Records.
Julie resides in New York and Los Angeles.
