Julie Kerr is the founder of Music Love Australia, a website that shines a spotlight on the vast and diverse talentpool of women in the Australian music industry. Julie is a singer/songwriter who has been performing and recording music since 2002.
In 2012, Julie was contacted in the middle of the night by Jackson Five singer Jermaine Jackson who found her song Papergirl, while looking through Julie’s video producer’s website at home in LA. Going on to become both Julie’s mentor and friend, he inspired Julie to write her current and third release Carry On, recorded at the iconic Studios 301, and produced by Grammy-nominated producer and engineer Simon Cohen.
A passionate writer, Julie has been published by Mamamia, The Daily Life, The Canberra Times, marie claire Australia, Sarah Wilson, ABC’s The Drum and (the now defunct) long form website The Global Mail.
