Julie Neway was born in Alberta, Canada. She began her music career at an early age when she won a coloring contest that gave her free violin lessons at the age of eight. She went on to earn an Associate degree in Violin from the Royal Conservatory of Toronto (ARCT) where she also studied piano, while at the same time finishing her undergraduate microbiology degree at the University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. This was followed by her graduate degrees in information science (University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign) and natural medicine (Boulder School of Natural Medicine) in the United States.
