“Life’s hard, but today I’m feeling higher.”
So sings Julia Rose in her brand new single Come What May. The cool thing about a new single like this is that it usually means a full album is on the way and that’s the case for this Gold Coast songstress with a three octave range. Yes! Three octaves!
We’re thrilled to premiere the film clip for Julia’s new single.
If you’ve seen Julia perform, you’ll know she has a captivating stage presence. She can silence a room until the final note with her charismatic and honest delivery. Her live shows are nothing short of stunning.
The last year has been a big one which has seen the baroque pop singer, bassist and songwriter busy between recording, releasing and touring her second EP Stairway to the Moon across Japan with a whopping 31-show tour of Australia which included live sets at the Byron Bay Blues Festival, Surfers Paradise Festival and Art in the Park Festival. She also picked up Performer of The Year Award at the 2014 Pride Festival Queens Ball.
This latest single leads up to a new album, due for release in 2015. Julia is produced and managed by Guy Cooper from Seratonin Productions / Human Records.
Thematically, Julia Rose’s songs explore human connection, intimacy, love, soul searching, and the itinerant nature and experiences of life on the road. Her soaring vocals, rhythmic guitar lines and masterful bass licks blend beautifully to take you on a lyrical, rhythmical and melodic journey.
Julia’s first single Gina from her last EP Stairway to the Moon launched at number three on the AirIT Great Southern Charts. And her music video and single for Melbourne Town received airplay on both Rage and Channel V, taking out Music Video of the Year at the Australian Dolphin Awards. We’re pretty sure this single Come What May is headed in the same direction.
