About the album

Whatever Julia Zipprick does, she does well. With her long-awaited debut album By My Side, the Cologne- based artist draws together a passionate overview of her previous musical output.

That essence which lends her a steadily growing fan base at concerts, has finally found its way onto a recording: a dozen, mostly self-written songs, which illuminate the many facets of her vocal, musical and compositional skills.

Starting with a superb declaration of love 'Now that I found you', the dyed-in-the-wool singer leads us on her album through the entire human drama: she tells about searching and experimenting, leaving and missing, of her "darling embracer" and realizes that "I can't do anything about it. That's just the way some things are". In doing so, her compositions brilliantly and very sensitively follow the loud and soft sounds of the literary coloratura within her texts, which are refreshingly straightforward and use both German and English.
Musically, the songs are primarily told through jazz, with its natural openness to other genres allowing the music to sound fresh and innovative. Outstanding musicians and delightful instrumentation such as the marimba, glockenspiel and clarinet, provide for a musical treat. They colour the music richly and powerfully, even trendily tender; sometimes nostalgic, sometimes Caribbean, sometimes almost childlike.

Honest and direct, reflective and sensual, serious and sometimes melancholy, but always with a subtle wink and an unerring sense for the right amount of humour. With subtle melodies, striking as well as haunting rhythms, and using both poetic and direct words, Julia Zipprick describes an entire emotional universe.

By My Side is a very personal statement by the vocalist, songwriter and composer, Julia Zipprick. Through her artistry, she is able to tell stories that will remain relevant for a long, long time!
