Soulful Songwriter Series Part III


Ulli, Jillian Maas Backman,ImaginePublicity

Ulli is an Indie-Progressive Fold artist who studied at the University of Bonn before coming to Chicago in 2005 from her native Germany where she sang in both the church choir and a rock and roll band.

Ulli comes from a musical family, she began singing at age 4 and took piano and flute lessons at 11. She is a trained vocalist and self-taught guitarist and pianist, as well as an extraordinarily talented composer and lyricist. Inspiration for her songwriting is drawn from her love for exploring the meanings & possibilities of life.

Compared to Joni Mitchell and Tori Amos, her crystaline voice dances through the melodies of her songs, accompanied by the guitar or a cappella.

Ulli’s latest venture is composing and producing her first CD, Without Reason, which contains eleven tracks of original music. ‘Without Reason” is a stirring and  heart-felt mixture of guitar, piano and original lyrics melded and classified as Indie-Progressive Folk.

Ulli can be seen sharing her breathtaking voice throughout local venues around Chicago.  She continues to create & improvise her music, honing her distinctive style, playing solo gigs and also collaborating with guest artists, attracting a devoted following at small Chicago clubs.

“I love playing intimate venues because there is nothing I enjoy more than connecting to people through my music. Music is energy.”
