This week we find ourselves crushing on Jules!
Hailing from Toronto, Jules is a bit of a musical phenom. She’s going to hate that I’m mentioning it, but since I’ve got more than twenty years on her, I’ll take my chances. At the tender age of 16, Jules is making music with depth and complexity and raw emotion. The music bug bit her early, but rock was her first love, with Jules citing Pink and Avril Lavigne as early music addictions. She wrote her first song when she was 8, rewriting it when she was 12 to add to her debut EP, Heart of Armor. Jules was one of the youngest recipients of a juried sound recording (JSR) grant from FACTOR, and in 2016 she won a full scholarship to Berklee College of Music in Boston last summer via Unsigned Only.
This year will see Jules release another album, People Watching, produced by Hill Kourkoutis. A mix of R&B, bluesy rock and that indie pop vibe that Jules loves, People Watching is a passionate coming of age album by an artist wise beyond her years. Jules co-wrote almost every with various songwriters, including Hill, their guidance helping to shape her voice and talent. We can’t wait to hear People Watching, but until then, we can enjoy the song that started it all, “Supergirl”:
If you want to see this awesome live, Jules has a showcase coming up on April 29 at The Rivoli in Toronto. Until then, get to crushing on her with us!
What is your definition of romance?
Complicated and consuming
What is your ideal first date?
Something casual and fun like going go-karting, Wonderland, Jay game, or thrift shopping. (Don’t buy me flowers; I’ll take some candy instead)
What’s your instant deal breaker?
Well for one, if he has better hair than me and two, if he’s an intense momma’s boy.
If there was one piece of advice you could give to other men/women out there, what would it be?
The person you’re with should also be your friend. Don’t spend every moment with them because…. you’ll get sick of them.
