Julie Seagrave has been actively involved in music all her life, from playing piano and guitar through her formative years and at university. In 2012 she graduated with a BA from UCD, and in 2014 obtained a BMus from the same college with an undergraduate thesis on feminist representations in popular music. Julie continued her academic career with an MA in Music and Cultural History in UCC. She completed her master’s thesis on the music of the Native Tongues, an early 90s hip-hop collective from New York.
