Project Description

Similar Artists: Fiona Apple, Celeste, King Princess

Versatile, intuitive, and multi-dimensional. Those are just a few words to define the genre-bending musician Giulia., who infuses jazz-influenced arrangements, unusual rhythmic phrasings, and understated spoken word into her dreamy indie-folk melodies. 

Born and raised in Toronto, one of the most multicultural cities in the world, Giulia. was surrounded by a world of art from a young age. The moniker Giulia. (with a g and a period) comes from the Italian spelling of Julia she’d always wanted. Her parents “Americanized” their names in their youth when having a foreign-sounding name was frowned upon. Years later, they gave both her siblings names with the traditional Italian spelling. Giulia. says, “I remember growing up, I was very dramatic about the fact that I was the only one who didn’t have an Italian name and always envied the uniqueness of their names.” Set to release her first song at 19, she needed an artist name immediately. She says, “The little 9-year-old girl inside of me begged me to make her proud. I had been waiting for an alter-ego my whole life so I could name her Giulia., and now I was finally going to have one.” She added the period to make her feel extra special – like the name didn’t need anything else, just Giulia. Period.

Bio

Versatile, intuitive, and multi-dimensional. Those are just a few words to define the genre-bending musician Giulia., who infuses jazz-influenced arrangements, unusual rhythmic phrasings, and understated spoken word into her dreamy indie-folk melodies. 

Born and raised in Toronto, one of the most multicultural cities in the world, Giulia. was surrounded by a world of art from a young age. The moniker Giulia. (with a g and a period) comes from the Italian spelling of Julia she’d always wanted. Her parents “Americanized” their names in their youth when having a foreign-sounding name was frowned upon. Years later, they gave both her siblings names with the traditional Italian spelling. Giulia. says, “I remember growing up, I was very dramatic about the fact that I was the only one who didn’t have an Italian name and always envied the uniqueness of their names.” Set to release her first song at 19, she needed an artist name immediately. She says, “The little 9-year-old girl inside of me begged me to make her proud. I had been waiting for an alter-ego my whole life so I could name her Giulia., and now I was finally going to have one.” She added the period to make her feel extra special - like the name didn’t need anything else, just Giulia. Period.

Growing up around her dad, who is also a musician, she had a strong connection to music and would make up little songs and melodies around the house about all kinds of situations. Music came to her very naturally and after receiving her first guitar from her dad at age 16, writing songs quickly followed.  She says, “When I first started making music, it always felt very timid to me. For many years, I refused to play and sing for anyone, and my writing reflected that. It felt very hidden, private, almost like I was embarrassed to even be writing.” The songs were a lot quieter - not just in volume, but in tone. She continues, “It was as if they couldn’t take up space.” With growth, however, comes evolution and Giulia. found a way to bring maturity and presence to her songs. She says, “I write with the knowledge that the songs can be as big or as small as I want them to be. Before, I wrote small songs out of fear. Now I write them by choice.” Now she writes about joy, love, anxiety, and fear, with confidence in what she has to say.

Giulia. incorporates elements of a multi-versed artistic background in film and dance into her sound. A national champion garnering Canada multiple gold medals, she dedicated 18 years of her life to dance, training competitively and professionally in many dance styles, including modern, jazz, hip-hop, and ballet. She says, “There is an innate rhythm and movement I feel when I write my songs. This especially comes alive in my phrasing and the way I choose to say and sing my lyrics.” Giulia. pivoted when it came time to attend college, deciding to pursue a BFA in Dramatic Arts at The New School in New York City.  Her acting background allows her to explore different scenarios and characters within her songs that come alive when she performs. As a filmmaker and writer, crafting stories and choosing how to depict them informs the core of her songwriting - just condensed and in an audio format. 

On her upcoming EP, Night Before, Giulia. paints vivid images for listeners to take them on a journey. It’s a culmination of her own journey filled with family, full-bodied artistic endeavors, and a young woman coming into her own.
