Julie Hanney

Julie Hanney


Julie is a pianist, composer and recording artist. Her music spans several genres from relaxing/new age to contemporary classical to jazz to romantic. Writing music since she was a little girl, she received her formal music education at the University of Oregon where she graduated with a degree in music with special emphasis on piano and composition. She studied composition at the graduate level and is a published composer of works for piano, choir and various instrument combinations. She has arranged and composed music for the Jones Road String Quartet, the Bend Cello Collective, the Gospel Choir of the Cascades and various community, church and school choirs.

Julie’s music has been described as “peaceful yet intriguing.” One reviewer described her as being a lovely combination of George Winston meets Erik Satie. This is a true compliment of Julie’s ability to compose and perform music that both inspires and soothes.

Julie’s newest album is being released on January 22, 2021 with Heart Dance Records. Titled Where the Ocean Meets the Sky, the intention is that these songs impart a sense of rest, wonder, peace and healing.  Her previous albums Painting in Sound and A Peace-filled Christmas have been heard around the world on streaming platforms, and A Peace-Filled Christmas was nominated for Holiday Album of the Year in 2019 on SoloPiano.com.

Julie’s albums are available for streaming on Spotify, Pandora, Apple Music, etc. and are available for purchase on Bandcamp and iTunes, as well as on Amazon.  You can pre-order Where the Ocean Meets the Sky on Bandcamp and receive the first single “Peace Hymn” now.
