ABOUT THE SHOW
Julia Martin presents ‘Steamy Windows’ a tribute to the undisputed Queen of Rock’ Miss Tina Turner.
This high energy production is one of Julia’s longest running tribute shows, performed around the world, with standing ovations and repeat bookings on every occasion. From its conception 20 years ago, this incredibly authentic show captures the image, the stage presence, the legs and most importantly the voice of this great rock legend.
Julia in a recent interview commented… ‘I have always had a love for Rock Music and Tina has been one of my idols for over 20 years, she is one of the few tribute characters that I have yet to meet in person and I think Tina’s life story is simply inspiring. I have built my tribute show around Tina’s sensational live performances, with all my music being individually produced to capture the ‘energy and beat’ of a Live Tina concert. I have had so many people pass comment, not only about my vocal accuracy but also my backing tracks, it was an expensive project with over 30 songs commissioned, but incredibly worthwhile and it certainly adds an extra layer to my performance.
Attention to detail, careful research and a commitment to accurately portray Tina both vocally and visually is what makes ‘Steamy Windows’ special. Julia becomes Tina in every way, wig, make-up, replica costumes and of course the famous legs and movement. But a tribute show is not simply about looking like someone, you have to become that person, you have to be able to step onto stage, capture the audience, and sell the illusion.
Julia, makes this show her own, catapulting it to the top of the Tina Turner tribute list. With vocals direct from Nutbush, Tennessee, mannerisms that are ‘Pure Tina’ and a stage presence that commands the room, Julia weaves her magic and delivers a show that when you shut your eyes; Tina Turner herself is in the room.
Audience engagement is also guaranteed with Julia walking amongst the tables, posing for photographs, and making every person in the room feel special, without even missing a beat from the songs that she is performing.
Tina is so totally unique that it is important to capture more than just the voice, without the Tina mannerisms, it just would not be Tina. The stage costumes play such an important part and Julia had replicated two of Tina’s most famous dresses from Tina’s ‘Private Dancer Tour’ hand stitched in Turkey from the finest leather, these dresses copy every seam, zip and buckle from Tina’s original.

MISS JULIA MARTIN HAS SPENT TWENTY YEARS
PERFORMING HER TRIBUTE SHOWS AROUND THE WORLD
Miss Julia Martin
Thank you for taking the time to visit my Dame Shirley Bassey tribute website. I have been a professional singer for 20 years; I perform throughout the UK, Europe and around the world. I’ve entertained in world-class hotels, arenas, theatres, cruise liners and the homes of the rich and famous. The job is awesome, I get paid for doing what I enjoy the most, paying tribute to some of the world's most celebrated female artists.
My passion is performing and taking on the persona of other characters, to sound like them, dress like them and deliver a performance to an audience in such away that the audience feels they are watching the original performer. Whilst this site is dedicated to my Shirley Bassey tribute show, I do have a selection of other tribute shows that I regularly perform. (MORE INFORMATION)
I also own an events management company, that organises everything from a private themed party to a full scale theatre production, services can include dancers, costumes, props and entertainment. One of my recent events for an audience of nearly 1,000 people included lots of pyrotechnics and a live tiger on stage. (MORE INFORMATION)
Having performed over the years on a number of cruise liners, I was recently invited onto 'Cruising with the Stars', a popular chat show, on SKY television. The video clip from the show is below, and I was given the opportunity to talk about my life in show business, not just on the cruises but also in other venues around the world. I have also launched my new www.juliamartin.net website, which is now fully up and running, if you want any further information on any of my other shows or more details on my Events Company 'JM Productions', then please feel free to visit this site, just click on the link to the left.
I enjoy helping to raise money for charities, my youngest son Charlie is 22, and severely autistic, he is the inspiration behind much of my charity work. I am the founder and chairperson of Autism Unseen, a charity that helps young autistic individuals integrate into society, and I work with the Conflict Free Mineral Association (CFMA), to help abolish child slave labour in the DRC. I also regularly get involved in other fund raising ventures, for a number of other charitable endeavours, and just recently I completed an 80 km walk from Switzerland to France in aid of Syria Relief. (MORE INFORMATION)
Three years ago, I decided that I wanted to take on new challenges, and to fulfil another of my childhood dreams, that of becoming a Barrister. With my children now grown up, I enrolled at the University of Hull on a 4-year joint honours degree in Law & Legislative Studies. This process of going back to being a student, albeit a mature student, changed my life completely and although I still regularly sing, I have become involved in many new and exciting projects. These include, being Law Society President, BPP Liaison Officer, and the most rewarding of all, working for a full year in the House of Lords, alongside Lord Norton of Louth. (MORE INFORMATION)
I still have many new challenges, not least to become a Barrister, but I will never leave behind my passion to sing. Every week I shall step out onto stage, it might be Switzerland, Singapore, Dubai or somewhere in the UK, and I will continue doing what I enjoy the most ... performing, being an entertainer not just a singer, working an audience, and delivering a tribute show that makes the audience believe that they have just seen the original artist.
