Julie Anthony, one of Australia’s finest voices, will release a new compilation ‘Memories: The Ultimate Collection’ for Robert Rigby’s Ambition Entertainment in November.
Throughout the 70s, 80s and 90s Julie Anthony was Australia’s greatest cabaret and theatre performing artist. For her work she has been awarded the Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) and the Member of the Order of Australia (AM) and was named one of the 100 Greatest Entertainers of the 20th Century.
Giving advice about longevity in the entertainment industry Julie said, “Jill Perryman once said to me ‘just enjoy it all’ … how simple, but so wise. Work ethic is very important. Work hard , listen, watch and learn, and if it’s meant to be, it will be”.
Julie recently retired from performing. “After 43 years , the suitcase and motel routine was wearing a bit thin, and so I decided to exit stage left while I was still able to! I left the farm to sing in Sydney, thinking I would stay a few months, enjoy the experience, and go back to the farm. Instead a whole new world opened up, and I went on this wonderful journey, this kid from the Mallee could never have imagined such a life, all because I loved to sing,” she said.
Julie Anthony ‘Memories: The Ultimate Collection’ will be released on Robert Rigby’s Fanfare label on 6 November 2015.
