Having grown up with the iconic themes in video games, cartoons and movies, she began arranging her own covers before launching herself into writing and composing her own songs based off of the things she enjoyed watching and playing. Her music style is a mish-mash of the people who’ve inspired her: Johnny Gioeli for his powerful rock vocals, John Williams for his masterful film scores, and the rock group Queen for their clever, memorable songwriting. Even though she spends more time working on her own, she enjoys collaborating with like-minded, passion-driven musicians on exciting music projects around the globe.

Julia began posting covers on her channel in September 2015 and, since then, has covered music from a growing variety of video game franchises, as well as arrangements of music from TV shows and movies. Although her instruments of choice are her voice, flute, and the piano, Julia is continuing to incorporate other instrumentation into her arrangements, such as guitar, percussion, and synthesizers. As a classically-trained singer, Julia’s arrangements are heavily influenced by both classical and contemporary vocal and choral compositions, however, Julia loves exploring other genres and has contributed to rock, jazz, funk, and metal-inspired tracks. Since her channel’s inception, Julia has been fortunate enough to collaborate with several incredible artists and friends within the YouTube cover artist community. In addition to performing and composing, Julia loves teaching all things music and has been doing so for the better part of a decade.
