Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, Julia Thompson is a 19-year-old singer/songwriter on the rise. First introduced to music on the family piano that adorned her childhood home, Julia has been singing before she could even ride a bike. After learning how to play the piano, she began performing covers and eventually her own original songs. Initially, Julia only shared her music with friends and family, until she decided to take a leap of faith and go public with her debut single, ‘Hits’, which was released in February of 2018.
Julia Thompson has a clear mission when it comes to her music. “I want to give people something to relate and connect to.” With an incredibly vast vocal range and eclectic production, Thompson’s artistry shines through high-energy pop melodies as she documents the highs and lows of the teenage experience. Since her debut in 2018, Julia quickly garnered the attention of fans across the country as her second single, ‘Spark’, landed on ‘Fresh Finds’ and ‘Fresh Finds: Poptronix’ playlists. Julia’s third single, ‘Nights’, is an empowering anthem that premiered on Spotify’s ‘New Music Friday’ in July of 2018. Her most recent release, ‘The One (with Julia Thompson)’ was featured on multiple New Music Friday playlists Europe and aired nationally on MTV.
Julia is currently hard at work writing and perfecting a special batch of songs for repeated releases in 2020. Julia has said “2020 is my year to perfect my brand and image. I turn 20 this year and I finally feel like I know exactly who I am and who I want to be.”
