Hailing from The Bay Area, She is Jules is a musician and songwriter; she started her musical journey at the young age of 8 when Julianna or just Jules picked up a guitar.
After the singer has accumulated over 60 million streams on Spotify, she is back on the music scene with the single stop & go, released recently.
From acoustic pop to electronic dance music, the singer is widely known for her vocals with a background in EDM; Jules plans to release her 3rd EP titled Synesthesia this year.
The commercial track is totally stunning; I like the melodies and the rhythm of the song.
Here you can find out more about stop & go and Jules’s music career.
1-Where did you come from, where are you based now, and why?
I grew up in the Bay Area and still live here! I love it because we’re right next to the beach and the city. I love traveling to LA to do music but sometimes like to distance myself to get inspiration.
2-When did you start your music career?
I have been singing and writing since I was eight, but I can distinctly remember finally taking it seriously when I was thirteen. It’s been a long road since then!
3-How is your songwriting creative process?
It’s always different! If I had to pick my most common way to write a song, it’d be coming up with a melody that fits a track and then taking something from my notes that I feel like fits the mood. Im constantly writing down notes and ideas and collect photos that inspire me in my phone as well.
4-What is the message behind stop & go?
It’s funny, this song has less of a message and more of a story about someone who keeps leading their love interest on (“play a game of stop and go, hit me with a yes than no.). It’s essentially a story about this kind of behavior driving the other person to madness. If there was a “message” it’d be found in the first line “love is so blind…”, and you can never be too sure about someone.
5-What is it about music that makes you feel passionate?
I think there’s something in me that’s like a second nature to create. It’s my outlet for my emotions. But I won’t lie, sometimes it’s hard to create. It’s those times where I get a message from a fan saying that this song helped them through a rough time that makes it all worth it.
6-Which is your best song, in your opinion?
It hasn’t come out yet! But if I had to pick my favorite song that’s been released…I really love “R U Rly Sorry?”. It’s a song that it full of emotion yet makes you wanna dance at the same time.
7-What’s the best piece of advice another musician ever gave you?
“Don’t be too precious”. Meaning don’t put everything you’ve got into just one song, because it’s usually the song you expect the least to blow up. This has always been true for me and a lot of my musician friends. Have fun creating and give every song a big push, but don’t put all your eggs in one basket.
8-How do you feel the Internet has impacted the music business?
For me personally, I can confidently say my music would not be as far as it’s gotten without the internet. When Covid started I did all my sessions through Zoom and connected to everyone who I worked with through the internet. As a result I’ve been the most successful I’ve ever been in my music career. In other ways, I can see the negative impacts of the internet on the music business. Especially with Tik Tok, there’s just so much content put out everyday, it feels like an impossible contest for a lot of artists. I feel like it makes a lot of us feel rushed, and art isn’t meant to be rushed.
9-What’s your process for dealing with performance anxiety?
I’ve dealt with performance anxiety a lot, and the only way I’ve been able to get through it is practice practice practice. Especially with what I’m going to say in-between songs.
10-What would you do if you made a mistake during a performance?
Keep going. Maybe laugh it off. I’ve made a lot of mistakes during a performance and you never stop. In this case, fake it til you make it is so true. Because chances are, nobody is going to notice except you or your bandmates especially if you don’t make a big deal out of it.
11-What is next for Jules?
Lots of exciting things! As I’ve announced, my EP “Synesthesia” will be released song by song this spring and there’s going to be a lot of exciting things like music videos and visualizers. I just released the second song “twice” and the next song will be coming in the next month of two.
