A household name in New Zealand, Yulia’s current live performances include a selection of songs from the two multi platinum award winning, number one hit albums INTO THE WEST and MONTAGE. On these albums Yulia sings fluently in English, Russian, French, Italian, Spanish and Maori, the indigenous New Zealand language.
Leading New Zealand music producer and television and stage music director Carl Doy who worked with Yulia on her albums INTO THE WEST and MONTAGE comments;
"Yulia is that rare international phenomenon; a truly individual voice. Add to that lashings of Russian soul, liberal quantities of musicianship and you have a singer who transcends classification. Enjoy!"
Yulia is currently writing songs for her third album and an inspirational book. She aims to follow up on the commercial success of her first two albums with the release of her third album and her first book during 2009.
Yulia is also focussed on making the necessary connections to showcase her unique talent worldwide in live performances.

Important to note the albums INTO THE WEST and MONTAGE were not exported (with the exception of Japan) as YULIA was sadly caught up in the incorporation of SONY NZ into SONY AUSTRALIA during the merger with BMG.
