Singer/songwriter Julia Nunes is relentlessly personal. That, plus her powerhouse cello-like voice and thought provoking lyricism is how she garnered a loyal and long standing following that has carried her from playing the ukulele on YouTube to dropping an album on Conan.
From YouTube covers to sold-out house shows, Julia has captured the hearts of countless fans worldwide, who have been patiently awaiting her latest release, UGHWOW.
In Julia’s own words: 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 approach to independent artistry.
