The first review I ever read of this album (yes, this was back in the days of albums, 45s, and other extinct vinylsaurus species) described Julia's sound as "a south-of-the-border Sade." The sound may occasionally evoke the music of Sade, but there is no comparing the voices of Sade Adu and Julia Fordham/5(34).

A jazz- and pop-influenced singer/songwriter, Britain's Julia Fordham is an eclectic artist with a loyal cult following. A native of Portsmouth, England, Fordham performed folk music in local clubs, sang with the National Youth Jazz Orchestra, and worked as member of Mari Wilson's backing troupe the Wilsations before embarking on her solo career. In , Fordham released her eponymously titled debut, Julia Fordham, .

Julia Fordham is one of those rare singers whose work crosses the lines between jazz, folk, and pop, and whose career has unquestionably suffered because of, not in spite of, her versatility. Radio simply doesn't know what to make of her, though she did enjoy some play on VH1 around the time of her sophomore set, Porcelain. Some find Fordham a bit of a cold fish, thanks to her debut's studied production, yet the album finds Fordham /5(34).
