Julie Hanney

Julie Hanney


Julie is a composer/pianist living near the Cascade Mountains in Central Oregon.  When she isn’t working on an array of musical projects, she loves to explore the natural world.  Kayaking, hiking, camping, forest bathing and seeking out hot springs are some of her favorite pursuits.  She has two doodle dogs, Lily the Labradoodle and Ella the Sheepadoodle.  The entire family is musical including Julie’s husband Derwyn (a singer), her son Kyle (a pianist, drummer, singer and songwriter), her son Ryan (a guitarist, singer, songwriter and bass player) and her daughter Amy (a classically trained cellist who is attending music conservatory).  You can check out her son Ryan’s music by looking for Palo Sopraño on all the streaming platforms.  Julie is also a member of 20 Fingers Piano Duo.  20 Fingers is committed to making piano duet music cool again - or maybe for the first time?  :-) With jazzy interpretations of everything from the Beatles to Beethoven, they are always entertaining and inventive. 

Julie is currently recording a Christmas CD that will be available in November, 2019. 

Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy my music!  It comes from my heart and I hope it brings a sense of peace and comfort.
