The indie pop singer-songwriter, Julia Jacklin grew up in a family of school teachers. There is a discipline that teachers incorporate into their children. Born in Sydney, Australia she says she was inspired by pop singer, Britney Spears and started taking classical singing lessons by age 10. In high school, she joined a band and they did covers of Avril Lavigne songs.
Her family didn't understand her wanting to be a musician and didn't feel things would work out for her. In 2014 she formed a band called Phantastic Ferniture and things started taking off. The band released its self-titled album in 2018. In 2016 she released a couple of singles, including Pool Party and Coming of Age and she received critical acclaim. After things took off she realized that she can now call herself a musician and quit her job. She has played at many music festivals like SXSW, Electric Picnic, and others. She signed with the independent record label, Transgressive Records and released her debut album, Don't Let the Kids Win. Julia Jacklin says her influences are Doris Day, Billy Bragg, Fiona Apple, and Björk. Her second album, Crushing in 2019 received great reviews, check out her song, Body with its somber tone and emotional vocals. Her new album, Pre Pleasure was just released on August 26th, and has directed her own video for the song I Was Neon. We can't wait for her to tour for the album.
