Julia Kent is a Canadian cellist, best known as an original member of all-cello group Rasputina. She left Rasputina in 1999 and has played cello with a variety of artists and ensembles since then, most notably Antony and the Johnsons. She released her first solo album, Delay, in 2007.


After years of playing cello with a myriad of artists and ensembles, Julia Kent holed up in her Lower East Side apartment to make a solo record inspired by touring and the disjunctions of travel. Incorporating multitracked cello, omnichord, and field recordings from airports around the world, her "lovely, melancholy," compositions, full of "aching romanticism ... rich melodicism, and detailed arrangements," make up Delay, her solo debut, released by Shayo Records in Europe and Important Records in North America.
