The girl was born on August 11, 1982 in Sverdlovsk (now Yekaterinburg). From 13 to 17 years old Yuliya was a part of the VIA Alyonushka.
Actually, Yuliya hasn’t got any special musical education, but she has a natural vocal talent.
She is the constant participant of many young performers’ contests.

In addition, Yuliya took part in the musical TV projects Popstars, People’s Artist, and Musical Ring.
New Songs of Yuliya, without any doubt, touch the soul, carry a charge of romance and optimism.
In 2008, the singer participated in the creative evening of Igor Nikolaev in Jurmala in the contest of young singers New Wave. The following years she also performed in Jurmala and was invited as a guest of the contest.
