Julie Christensen, born and raised in Iowa, left school to tour with her first band, which played country rock, landing for a time in Austin, Texas before heading to LA in the early 80s for the pioneering punk-roots rock band Divine Horsemen. From there, the versatile singer-songwriter took yet another musical turn – this time into a musical partnership with Leonard Cohen from 1988-1993. She is currently touring with two outstanding musicians, Sergio Webb and Chris Tench.
