German pianist and composer Julia Kadel was born in Berlin in 1986. After years of playing classical music she devoted herself to the jazz piano studies at University of Music Carl Maria von Weber Dresden in 2009.
With her well known piano trio ›Julia Kadel Trio‹ she released two albums at the legendary jazz label Blue Note/ Universal in 2014 and 2016. Kadel was nominated twice for the German Jazz Echo 2015. In September 2019 her trio released its third album ›Kaskaden‹ on the traditional German jazz label MPS, showing its rich musical experiences and quality when taking place in the legendary analogue MPS studio in the Black Forrest. Furthermore, the location of the recording not only came as a surprise but probably also as a small sensation to every fan of MPS as the Julia Kadel Trio is the first MPS act after 35 years recording again in the historic studios. But also as a soloist Kadel has now reached a new dimension of intensity and complexity within her musical language. Having played concerts in philharmonies and international festivals, Kadel was chosen as one of Germany’s ›Top Ten‹ key players in 2019 by famous music magazine ›Jazzthing‹. The young pianist has become a hot topic in the recent years, establishing herself as an expressive jazz pianist in Europe. Kadel played with artists such as Angelika Niescier, Julia Hülsmann, Elisabeth Coudoux, Erik Leuthäuser, Leon Albert, Julian Day, Thilo Thomas Krigar, Corinna Ruba, Günter Baby Sommer, Steffen Roth, Karl-Erik Enkelmann, Phil Donkin and Devin Gray. In 2020 Kadel was awarded with the ›Jazz Pott 2020‹ prize for her innovative musical creation.
