“The release of Bossa Nova Baby has elevated her above a mere covers singer or bossa specialist. The singer excels in an elegant co-composed duet (Belas Artes) with Australia’s finest Brazilian-oriented 7-string guitarist, Doug de Vries”. – The Australian, Tony Hillier
“Bossa Nova Baby” is a welcome surprise of good Brazilian music, made far away. It’s bossa that plays soccer with jazz – like it has since the 60’s – and scoring a goal” – O GLOBO, Brazil, Antonio Carlos Miguel, Music critic and judge member of the “Latin Grammy Award”.
” A wonderful Brazilian-Australian bossa nova baby with contemporary bossa nova songs.“ – Key and Chords, Belgium/Europe – Patrick Van de Wiele.
When she was a teenager, she was introduced personally to the Bossa Nova movement’s founders by Brazilian Music biographer Ruy Castro – who also named her “The Bossa Nova Baby”. This direct exposure to the Bossa Nova masters inspired her to become a professional singer and song-writer.
Juliana Areias lived for many years in Switzerland and New Zealand prior to moving to Australia. Her career includes performances at major international festivals such as the Montreux Jazz Festival, Auckland Festival, and America’s Cup (NZ).
