Singer/songwriter Julia Nunes is relentlessly personal. That, plus her strangely cello-like voice and thought provoking lyricism garnered her a loyal and long standing following that has carried her from playing the ukulele on YouTube to dropping an album on Conan. Julia's captured the hearts of fans worldwide, who have been patiently awaiting the release of UGHWOW.
Dubbed a ‘DIY Pop Star’ by Billboard, Julia’s new Billboard charting album UGHWOW is the next evolution in her musical journey, drawing influence from a range of artists; Frank Ocean, SZA, King Princess, Christine and The Queens and Perfume Genius. She strums the ukulele a total of 3 times on this record and still evokes the extreme tenderness of her acoustic beginnings. UGHWOW was produced by Shruti Kumar (Vampire Weekend, No Doubt, LAE), mixed by Vera Byramji (Shirley, Father John Misty, Roger Waters & Lucius), and mastered by Heba Kadry (Alex G, Lucy Dacus, Palehound, Princess Nokia).
Says Julia, “UGHWOW is a consistent line in my internal monologue, it’s frustration or exhilaration or contentment or sorrow or surprise depending on the day. The last few years have been very UGHWOW and this record is a pretty good encapsulation.
She’s toured with Ben Folds, A Great Big World, The Mowgli’s, Ben Kweller, performed with Weezer at Bonnaroo, and spoken at major music conferences MIDEM, SXSW, and FORM Arcosanti on her modern business approach to independent artistry.
