18 year old singer Julia first rose to prominence on the 2015 series of The Voice Kids in France. Following her appearance, where she formed part of Louis Bertignac's team, she continued to build her profile via YouTube. It was here that she caught the attention of the acclaimed duo Mylène Farmer and Laurent Boutonnat, who took Alizée from Graines de Star contestant to international icon. They took her under their wing and built her own sound, which was realised earlier this year with the sensational album, "Passe... comme tu sais". We caught up with Julia to learn more.
First of all, hello and how are you?
Hello, I am doing very well. Thanks.
Tell us about "Passe... comme tu sais"...
My album "Passe… comme tu sais" is a mixture of all my emotions, my sorrows, my joys and all my questions. This album... it's me.
What inspired the record?
My feelings, my doubts, the things in my life that are prominent for most of the time. Times already gone by.
Tell us a bit about your creative process...
My producers compose, write. They then make me discover their work. And I dive into a recording studio and lost myself in a sense of total immersion as it's my turn to create. My voice; my interpretation.
If the album were an animal, what animal would it be?
A cat obviously!!!
Define your sound in five words...
What was the first song that caught your attention?
The song "Mon héritage" bowled over me the first time I heard it. The music, the words ... Everything was there to awaken buried emotions.
