Julia Werup | "The Thrill Is Gone"

#Releases #Jazz #RnB

Magnificent interpretation of a classic
After fantastic reviews of the album “The Thrill Of Loving You”, here is a brilliant edit of the lead single “The Thrill Is Gone”. Julia Werup’s interpretation is magnificent and her vocal performance is just outstanding. The musical performance by the band sounds refreshing and modern. Julia Werup and her band are making this tune their own, and that’s a big task as it has earlier been performed by jazz legends such as Chet Baker, Sammy Davis Jr., Ella Fitzgerald amongst others.

The highly anticipated follow-up EP "Giants" is officially dropped!
In Capelle’s own words: “I want people who listen to my music to feel like they know me. I lay everything out on the table – I don’t ever write music that doesn’t relate to either what I’m going through or what my loved ones experience – so I deeply want to develop closeness with my fans.” Vents Magazine says: "Capelle has a well-honed sense for getting to the heart of what a particular performance demands with no nonsense style aiming to realize the composition’s potential. It’s a potent approach..."
