POP SINGER/SONGWRITER; PIANIST; PERFORMER
Julia Klot is a NYC based music artist writing soulful pop music. With her original compositions, she creates melodic and intricate piano parts accompanied by her dynamic vocal range that throw it back to singer-songwriters such as Carol King and Elton John. Nicole Ting of music blog "Say You'll Remember Me" describes Julia's musical style as "reminiscent of the emotive, powerful honesty of Orla Gartland, Birdy, and 2007 Sara Bareilles." Julia's most recent release 'Boxing Gloves' , introduces a genre shift to a soul-pop sound inspired by bands like Lawrence, Melt, & Sammy Rae & The Friends. The renowned music blog 'Earmik' speaks of Julia's ability to seamlessly, "...blend [an] upbeat sound with emotionally charged lyrics...[creating a] perfect mix of old-school charm and modern pop sensibilities...that is both enjoyable and thought-provoking."
Julia began her musical study with piano lessons at age 6 and was exposed to the world of songwriting through her teacher. In 2011, Julia began working on music at RedBird Studio with Radian Records, eventually releasing her debut album “Julia Klot” (2014). Since then, she’s established herself as a frequent performer throughout NYC, playing at well-known venues like The Bitter End, Rockwood Music Hall, Mercury Lounge, Pianos and Arlene's Grocery. Whether it be just her and the piano or with the support of her band, Julia brings an electric energy to every stage.
Julia’s sophomore release, “Brooklyn” (2019) features songs that were written over her first semester at college. With each song, the album unfolds a captivating story that draws inspiration from missing home and starting anew. The album was recorded at the conservatory studios of Purchase College. Her most recent release, the EP “Ghost”, introduces the listener to a more serene and soulful sound, with storytelling lyrics focused on the progression and cycles of relationships. While still true to Julia’s piano-based style, the EP showcases experimentalism with synths, keyboard sounds, and arranging. Buzz Music speaks of “Ghost”: “The display of Julia Klot’s songwriting techniques jumps out of the speakers as she breaks a piece of her heart off to transmit this beautiful message dripped in luxurious harmonies.”
Julia's latest release, 'Boxing Gloves', is a song that shifts her genre to a more upbeat, funky soul-pop sound. The track features catchy horns, groovy Wurli keys, ear worm guitar/vocal licks, and a strong lyrical message.
You can find Julia performing with her band this summer, and stay tuned for new music coming soon!
“Reminiscent of the emotive, powerful honesty of Orla Gartland, Birdy, and 2007 Sara Bareilles, the musicality of her stylistic choices, both instrumental and vocal arrangements, is intentional and mesmerizing in the way they bring out the bone-deep lyricism of each song.” - Nicole Ting
