Julia Cole

For those who aren’t familiar with you, tell us a little bit about yourself!
What’s up?! I’m a recording artist living in Nashville, TN, but was born and raised in Houston, TX. I specialize in my original genres of Island Pop Grass, Rhythm & Boons Farm, Country-Trap, Country-Shuffle-Trap, ECM (Electronic Country Music), Hick-Hop, and Hip-Hop Pop-Grass 😉 I like to BUMP.

How did you get started in music?
SPORTS! Weird, I know. I began singing National Anthems for my high school volleyball and basketball teams after my teammates and coaches heard me singing along to the radio in the locker rooms or on bus rides. Word spread in Houston and before I knew it, I was singing our nation’s song in front of a sold-out, season ending Texans crowd of 75,000 people. I started singing for the Astros, Dynamo, NASA, and even more. Luckily, I had already been writing poems, books, and songs for fun, and have been playing piano since age eight. Thus, everything started pointing towards one place: Nashville. I decided to attend Vanderbilt University, which helped convince my parents that moving to Nash-VEGAS and chasing my dream was a little less terrifying than it appeared.

You have a diverse set of influences – describe your music and tell us about some of those influences.
I’m a Texas girl living in Nashville…I think the country influence is self-explanatory. However, my start as a pianist with an inexplicable amount of SOUL in my voice, on-top of growing up in Houston’s Urban music scene, left me with the urge to experiment and mash-up all of my favorite elements in every genre. I have FOMO when it comes to music. I want to do it all:)

What is your favorite thing about Nashville?
Nashville is my home away from home. The people on my team aren’t just my co-workers. I love them like family. Nashville has a welcoming atmosphere unlike any other. AND VANDY<3

Who is one artist you would love to tour with?
I think Sam Hunt would be incredible to tour with. We both like to break the genre boundaries. I think our shows would be INSANE together.

What is your current favorite song?
“Bottom of the River”- Delta Rae

What are your goals as an artist?
All I need to feel accomplished are people singing along to my songs at the top of their lungs.
