You might not know young singer-songwriter Julia Michaels, but you know her songs. At just 22, she has already written chart-topping singlesfor a bevy of modern pop icons. Her infectious melodic sense, and poetic and emotive lyrics have resonated authentically with the masses since she emerged as a prodigiously talented teen songwriter.
Now, Julia courageously steps out front as an artist with an upcoming single, EP, and some plum live appearances. “After hearing so many other’s stories, and writing for other artists, I realized it was time to tell my story,” the Los Angeles-based artist confides. “These songs are my truth.”
Julia’s solo music favors an organic pop aesthetic with live instrumentation, emotionally raw lyrics, sophisticated hooks, and her sensually expressive vocals.
She will be ushering in this new era as a solo artist with live appearances in advance of single and EP releases. Upcoming, Julia will be performing alongside Kygo at the 2016 Olympics closing ceremony.
Reflecting on this fresh creative path, she says: “Now, I feel brave enough to talk about my life. All the great people in my circle have inspired me to push boundaries and not hide in the background. It feels so good to be able to finally express myself and share my stories. “
