About Julie London

Julie London

JULIE LONDON d2000. American singer, actress at her peak during the 1950s, widely known for her beauty poise and smoky sensual voice. She recorded 32 albums in a career that began in 1955 with a live performance at the 881 Club in Los Angeles. Billboard named her the most popular female vocalist for 1955-1957. She was the subject of a 1957 Life cover article, in which she was quoted as saying ; "It's only a thimbleful of a voice and I have to use it close to the microphone. But it is a kind of oversmoked voice and it automatically sounds intimate". Her signature song "Cry Me A River"  was written by her high-school classmate, Arthur Hamilton and was produced by Troup. The recording became a million-seller after its release in December 1955 and also sold well on re-issue in April 1983. Whilst primarily regarded as a singer, London also made over 20 films, most notably alongside Gary Cooper in "Man Of The West" (1958) and on TV in Rawhide (1960). She suffered a stroke in 1995 and then endured poor health until her death aged 74 in 2000.
